How is the honey produced?
To collect nectar, hundreds of thousands of bees frequent South Tyrol's meadows and forests every day. They store their syrupy liquid in the beehive’s combs.
This changes the composition of the raw material: the animals' own enzymes convert starches into sugar and form substances that inhibit fungi and bacteria. The honey also loses water.
When the bees cover their combs with wax lids, it’s a sign that the honey is ready and can be harvested. As soon as it has been cleaned of air bubbles and small wax residues, the natural honey is then bottled.
