On rainy, cold rainy days and weeks, during periods of prolonged drought, plants cease the release of nectar, or form it in minimal amounts. That’s when the starving bees begin to collect sweet sweet honey extracts of the kidneys and leaves of coniferous and deciduous trees, as well as insects.
Saccharous “dews” of larch, fir, apple, plum give people a vegetable plant honey. And processed beetles, aphids and honey plant bee juices turn into animal natural honey
Padewoods are good for humans, but are poisonous to feed bees. In most countries of the world, honey is valued more than flower honey. We have not received high recognition yet.
Properties of honey
Padewood honey is as sweet as floral, because bees collect nectar from the padi, in which not less than 4% of sugar. Very rarely honey has a bitter or unpleasant sour taste. Exceptionally pure, without impurities, padego honey does not exist. Honey is always mixed, with elements of flower pollen and nectar. The most valuable mead of honey is the one that is collected from coniferous trees high in the mountains.
In honey from the padi, 3 times more nitrogenous substances and mineral compounds are concentrated than in the flower ones. In addition, it has a high concentration of natural active phytoncides. Honey has a low acidity and is characterized by an increased content of potassium and melitose. It contains more than 20 essential rare amino acids, many essential substances and the active substance acetylcholine. Unfortunately, it is not resistant, hygroscopic, subject to rapid souring.
How to recognize a honeydew honey
Its color is completely dependent on the place of collection of nectar. If it is collected with oil and fir, then honey is quite light. Honey, collected by bees with birches, aspen, canopies is unattractive brown – green.
The nectar of mixed trees forms almost black honey. But most often in padovogo honey orange – yellow shade. Consistency of its increased density and viscosity. But honey is both sticky, like syrup, or very thick, like tar. It does not melt in the mouth for a long time, which is due to the increased number of dextrins.
The product has a mild sweetness and leaves a bitter aftertaste. The fragrance can be strong, very weak or smell of burnt sugar.
Crystallization of the product is very slow, with a large sedimentation of the liquid, or it may not occur at all.
Honey bee is poison for bees
It is strictly forbidden to leave such honey for the winter to feed the bees, they will die from toxicosis. Very useful for human melitosis and mineral substances of honey for bees are the strongest poison.
Melitosis is able to completely crystallize the winter reserve of honey, and mineral elements overflow the intestines of bees, cause an increase in spores of unicellular parasites, bees will get nosematosis or varroatosis, and die. In addition, the pad may contain substances not digested by bees that interfere with their metabolism.
Life-giving elements of honey
