Chestnut Honey

One of the most appreciated and well-known honeys in the world: chestnut honey stands out from the others for its look and taste. The color is not golden, but amber and recalls the color of a chestnut, with its brownish and reddish shades. Once tasted, it is difficult to forget the taste: it is very intense, almost bitter, basically little sweet or even not at all. This precious honey is rather liquid, as it hardly crystallizes, given a high percentage of fructose compared to glucose. Because of its high presence of flavonoids and polyphenols, it is an excellent disinfectant and antioxidant. It is particularly indicated as anti-inflammatory, in particular according to some studies, to disinfect and soothe the pains of the urinary tract, to treat ulcers, to placate the abdominal spasms, for respiratory ailments and to promote circulation.
