This product comes from a small artisanal production of honey from the rural region of Messinia in Greece and is 100% pure.

In research conducted at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, 48 samples of honey from all over Greece and from all the flowers were selected and examined. The research involved honey from oak, pine, fir, heather, chestnut, thyme, orange and the famous foreign honey manuka. Each honey presented its own unique properties, however the discovery  made was unique.

It was found that the honey with the greatest antioxidant activity is the dark oak honey. It is followed by spruce honey, heather honey, chestnut honey, pine honey, thyme honey and orange honey.

So thyme honey and orange honey may have an amazing aroma and as such be preferred by many, however they do not show as much antioxidant activity as the oak honey. Of course, this does not mean that they are not valuable!

Also impressive was the fact that oak honey is a stronger antioxidant than manuka honey, which in recent years has flooded the world market advertised for its biological action. In fact, manuka honey has less antioxidant activity than most Greek honeys.
