Mielatos (“mela”) from Quercus sp. Holm Oak honey is not obtained from flower nectar, but from secretions that occur in the oaks in this case. According to the official honey quality standard (BOE 186 of 5/8/2013), honeydew (honeydew) is the one that comes mostly from excretions of plant-sucking insects (hemiptera), present in the parts from the plants or from secretions from the living parts of the plants.
Its color is darker than that of honey from flower nectar and its antioxidant properties are superior. It offers great resistance to solidification or crystallization.
Holm Oak honey incorporates compounds such as polyphenol. In addition, we find high doses of mineral salts. It also highlights the concentration of iron in its molecules and other minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.
On the other hand, we recognize its invaluable vitamin contribution, which ranges from vitamin A, through the presence of B1 and B2, among others. And of course, it offers the usual properties of honey of apicultural origin, such as the energizing effect or anti-inflammatory properties.
