At the 12stremmata estate in Fotolivos, Drama, organic aromatic plants and herbs are grown, while the 'marriage' of lavender and beehives resulted from the experimental placement of hives in the heart of the estate.
Pine honey comes from the honeydew secretions of the insect (Marchalina hellenica) or pine worker.
It has a special and characteristic color which depends on the period of its production. Its color ranges from dark yellow to light brown. Pine honey produced in the spring has a lighter color and greater clarity than that produced in the fall. Like honey, it is not particularly sweet, due to the low glucose content, while its aroma is spicy and unusual, reminiscent of iodine. It crystallizes slowly, due to the low glucose content, and pure pine honey can remain liquid for a long time, which exceeds a year and a half.
The nutritional value of pine honey is particularly high thanks to the large number of minerals and trace elements it contains. Magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron and copper are some of the metals and trace elements found in its composition. It also contains carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and enzymes, which makes it an ideal food for athletes, children and people with intense physical and mental activity. Its low content of sugars and glucose allows its consumption by all age groups.
