Learn about Acacia honey’s natural benefits and our products

Firstly, what is Acacia honey?

Acacia honey is also known as locust honey. It has a delicate flavour, a mild taste and a light colour, almost transparent but occasionally with a tint of lemon yellow or yellow-green. Aca-cia honey is popular all over the world, particularly with Americans and Europeans. Acacia raw honey is sometimes called “liquid gold” or ‘liquid glass’.

Conveniently, Acacia honey remains liquid longer than the other 300 types of honey, and crystallises much slower due to its higher fructose content. Fructose-rich honeys such as acacia honey have a Glycemic Index of 53, other varieties of honey range from 32 to 85, de-pending on the botanical source.

So, what is Acacia honey good for?

As well as being absolutely delicious, there are many Acacia honey benefits - here are the top 5:

  1. It can aid wound healing and prevent bacterial contamination and infection by main-taining a moist environment while providing a protective barrier. Additionally, due to its powerful antioxidants it can protect your cells against damage.
  2. Hungarian Acacia Honey boasts of natural goodness, whilst tasting sweet and deli-cate. It contains many beneficial elements including up to 415 different enzymes and vitamins, such as magnesium and Vitamin C.
  3. It stimulates digestion, cleanses the liver, regulates intestinal movement, improves heart activity and the boosts the circulatory system. It helps to restore the body after effort by stimulating the immune system by boosting the number red blood cells.
  4. Due to its strong antibacterial activity, Acacia honey could help keep your skin free of bacteria, which may improve or prevent common skin problems like acne. Interest-ingly, some commercial acne-fighting creams and lotions contain Acacia honey.
  5. Acacia honey also contains powerful plant compounds, like flavonoids which act as antioxidants that can help to boost your health. Antioxidants also help with brain function, as well as skin health. Flavonoids can help to protect against chronic condi-tions, such as heart disease and some cancers.

As well as the health benefits, a further bonus to Hungarian Acacia honey is that it is the least allergenic of all other honey types. Because of the low pollen content, it is suitable for sensitive people as well, so they do not have to search for a local honey.

Where does Acacia honey come from?

Fact: Acacia honey does not come from Acacia trees! It actually comes from the source of blossoms from black locust tree, Robinia pseudoAcacia, sometimes called ‘false Acacia tree’.

Black locust trees not only produce amazing honey (with the help of the bees of course!), but as members of the pea or Fabaceae family, they pass nitrogen into soil, which is a great benefit for damaged or poor soil areas.

Black locust or false Acacia trees grow rapidly and can attain heights of up to 21m when ma-ture. The trees thrive in moist, fertile soil and are often grown as firewood because they grow rapidly and burn hot.

Hungarian Acacia honey is totally pure and clear as the Pannonian Basin has a unique cli-mate and Acacia forests that expand large areas, and within which nothing else is bloom-ing at the same time.
