Creamed Honey( number of products: 2 )
Creamed Honey is a product that is gaining increasing popularity among honey enthusiasts. It is honey that has undergone a special mechanical treatment involving intense mixing during crystallization. As a result, our creamed honey has a smooth and fluffy texture, perfect for spreading on bread or adding to desserts. Creamed honey does not form granules or hard sugar crystals, which can be an issue for some people when consuming traditional honey. It retains all the nutritional and healing properties of natural honey while remaining in a soft and creamy consistency.
How is creamed honey made?
Creamed honey is produced from liquid honey, which is freshly harvested from the beehive. Not every type of honey is suitable for creaming, as the process depends on the glucose and fructose content in the honey and the speed of crystallization. Honey varieties with high glucose content that crystallize quickly, such as rapeseed, linden, or buckwheat honey, work best for creaming.
The creaming process involves intense mixing of honey in special machines for several days or weeks, depending on the type of honey and ambient temperature. Mixing breaks down large sugar crystals into small particles, creating a uniform mass with a smooth and creamy consistency. Creamed honey is neither heated nor filtered, so it retains its nutritional value and biologically active components.
Creamed honey can also be flavored with the addition of fruits, spices, or herbs, giving it extra taste and aroma. Flavored creamed honey is an excellent addition to tea, yogurt, or ice cream.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of creamed honey?
Creamed honey has many advantages that make it increasingly desirable to consumers. Here are some of them:
