Algerian sidr honey, also known as jujube honey, is one of Algeria's finest honeys.
The current trend is to democratize this honey on the French-speaking market, which greatly appreciates this product.
Indeed, Algerian sidr honey has nothing to envy the famous jujube honeys from Yemen and elsewhere. The quality of our harvests and the numerous positive feedbacks are proof of the extent to which it is establishing itself as a benchmark in the field.
Geographical and natural origin of Algerian sidr honey
Laghouat is a region (wilaya in Arabic) in the heart of Algeria, bordered by jagged mountains at the foot of the Saharan Atlas.
Its sublime landscapes are characterized by an arid climate, with temperatures ranging from 8 to 40 degrees Celsius on average.
Native to the Saharan steppes, bees offer us this unique honey from the jujube tree. The bee picks the flower of its fruit, the jujube, and then carries out the entire honey-making process.
The region's lack of humidity, despite the presence of mountainous massifs, favours the cultivation of honey by bees.
Those in the know will tell you that Algeria offers many advantages in terms of its landscape composition: in addition to cities occupied by mountains, forests and the sea, there are also desert and wooded landscapes that are unique in the world
This diversity makes it possible to cultivate a multitude of honeys, in symbiosis with the different regional climates.

Taste and visual qualities of Algerian sidr honey
Persistent and suave, with fruity notes, its freshness is enhanced by its fine aromas. A simply delicious dish, reminiscent of caramel butter.
As its taste is similar to Yemeni sidr honey, so is its texture. Quite runny when harvested, it's the ideal example of what we think of as an exceptional honey.
Fairly light in color, it tends towards dark orange with age.
How to use Algerian sidr honey
To benefit from the natural advantages of this honey and its medicinal benefits, there are many ways to enjoy it.
As an excellent energy drink, just drink a glass of water with a citrus fruit (such as lemon or grapefruit) and honey before breakfast, and your day will never be the same!
You can start a course of treatment by taking a teaspoonful every morning on an empty stomach, and another teaspoonful a few minutes before bedtime. A 2-month course of treatment will produce visible results.
To make Algerian sidr honey easier to swallow, you can dissolve it in a glass of water or add a spoonful of black cumin oil.
You can also use it as a substitute for sugar: with its low glycemic index, this honey will be an ideal ally for your waistline.
How to store jujube honey from Algeria
Keep out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat.
Above 40 degrees, it will lose its therapeutic benefits and taste qualities.
It's also best not to store it in damp conditions: a dry, well-insulated place is ideal.
Indeed, humidity greatly alters the quality of this Algerian honey by increasing its moisture content, which should not exceed 17-18%.
Above this humidity level, the fermentation process would begin. Of course, we do not recommend consuming honey that has fermented, although there is no evidence that this is harmful to human health.
Your honey may crystallize, in which case a few minutes in a bain-marie will restore its natural liquid texture, without altering any of its intrinsic qualities. If you're a fan of Algerian products, check out nawhal's must-have Algerian sauce.
