Raw, organic, chestnut honey harvested in Campania, unfiltered, unheated and unpasteurized raw honey with a very aromatic nose and a marked taste, chestnut honey is excellent with cheeses and yogurt and ideal for athletes. Our honey is 100% Italian.
Chestnut honey, dark in colour, sometimes almost black, has a fairly strong flavour and aroma therefore, goes well with medium-aged products, such as Asiago, caciocavallo, grana or parmesan and soft cheese. If combined with delicate cheeses, it would cover its flavour.
The raw Chestnut honey crystalizes due to a natural process.
Not all honey is created equal. In fact, not all “honey” is even real honey, a number of ingredients are often added to what we buy as “honey”. Raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb, and is honey in its purest form. It is unfiltered, unheated and unpasteurized, processes which can destroy the natural vitamins (vitamin C and B), minerals and enzymes found in honey; to get the maximum benefits from honey, it's important to buy it in its raw form.
The health benefits of raw honey are endless, check our noney guide
