Padeviy honey: what is it?

Honey paste has many colors and shades. It depends on the type of plants and insects from which the fall is taken, weather and climate conditions. It is of amber or dark green color, if the source of the padi is the needles of trees.
But in most cases it has a dark brown or black color.

This is the first sign that distinguishes it when buying. By its structure and consistency, this honey is similar to tar. He is viscous, stretching.

The more admixtures of flower honey in it, the more liquid it is. If honeydew honey is taken from conifers, it is sweet.

In all other cases, sweetness is little felt, but there is a taste of bitterness. Sometimes its taste is unpleasant and repulsive.

It differs by its high hygroscopicity, so it quickly turns sour.For long-term storage, it is not suitable. Crystallization is slow, sometimes it does not exist or the liquid fraction settles.

In the time of tsarist Russia, they were forbidden to trade, as it was believed that this is a product of low grade and quality. The phrase "on bezrybe and cancer - the fish" - this is about padevom honey. But this concerns the choice of the bee. If she had to choose, she would prefer a flower nectar.

In Western Europe, pade honey is valued more than flowers because of its beneficial properties. At us traditionally give preference, as well as bees, a flower kind.

About the

In too dry periods, bees take bribes for bribes. It is of plant and animal origin. In the first case, it is a sweetish transparent liquid that is excreted by plants (leaves and shoots).
Some people call it honey-dew. If you saw droplets of colorless liquid on the leaves of trees in the morning hours, then it's not dew, but a plant drop. It is also of animal origin. These are the products of the vital activity of insects feeding on plant sap, for example, plant lice.
