Characteristics of organic rosemary honey
Rosemary, from its Latin name Salvia rosmarinus, is a shrub in the Lamiaceae family. It is an aromatic plant with small, violet-blue flowers. It flowers twice a year, in spring and autumn.
Rosemary grows mainly around the Mediterranean: Spain, Portugal, Italy, Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco. Harvesting extends from spring to summer, and is even possible in winter when temperatures permit.
It is a monofloral honey, cold extracted and certified organic by ECOCERT FRANCE. Organic rosemary honey is light in color, almost white. Its color is due to its crystallization, which gives it a smooth, slightly granular texture.
It's a tasty product, which can be enjoyed to treat certain ailments or simply for pleasure. It can be used to sweeten herbal teas, yoghurt or as a natural remedy.
Organic rosemary honey is a source of vitamins A, B, C, D and E. It also contains a number of trace elements such as calcium, iron, lithium and copper.
