Acacia honey comes from bees foraging on vast acacia forests distributed throughout Romania. The bees first visit the acacia forest from Bucharest (in the South of the country, near the Capital), then the one from Galați county (in the Central-East part of the country), and then those from Neamț or Iași counties (in the North-East of Romania). We supply our Romanian honey from a passionate couple of beekeepers, Cornel and Rozalia.
Light yellow and almost transparent, acacia honey has one of the lightest tastes in the world of raw honey. It is very mild and pleasant honey, with a delicate taste of creamy vanilla, a clean floral aroma and no aftertaste. Unlike many varieties of raw honey, which can be quite overbearing, acacia honey is light and easy on the palate.
The slow crystallisation of this particular honey appeals to many. It is due to its high fructose content and low glycemic index, which also makes this honey a better choice for people with sugar sensitivity.
The mild taste of this honey makes it perfect for use “straight-up” and added to yoghurt, cereal or ice cream since it doesn’t overpower other flavours. Acacia honey also has a low acid content, so it pairs well with many kinds of cheese, figs, apricots or other stand-alone fruits and nuts.
- Additional information
Because our honey is 100% raw it can crystallise over time. This is normal and it does not mean that the honey has gone off. Simply place the jar of honey in a glass bowl, quarter fill a pan or a pot with boiling water then place the bowl into it. The steam should heat the bowl, which heats the jar without overheating it (you do not want the benefits of the honey to be eliminated by the heat). Keep the water boiling by turning up the heat on the stove. The honey should be in liquid form again in 15 minutes or so (depending on the size). To read more about honey crystallisation, please read our article about it here.
- Do not feed raw honey to infants and young children under 12 months of age due to the chance of botulism poisoning. This is not a danger for older children or adults.
- Using large amounts of honey might increase blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
- Avoid honey if you are allergic to pollen. Honey, which is made from pollen, may cause allergic reactions.
