Characteristics of eucalyptus honey
The consistency of this honey is compact and the colour is amber that turns towards dark brown with an even more compact consistency. Its crystallisation takes place in a few months and the granulometry is very fine. The flavour is quite strong, intense and particularly balsamic: for some, it recalls mushrooms, wood and curry, while others feel the taste of helichrysum and liquorice candies. The taste is not too sweet and also the acidity is moderate.
Properties and benefits of eucalyptus honey
Eucalyptus honey is mainly used against coughs and typical diseases of the respiratory system such as colds, as well as in general for illnesses due to states of inflammation. These properties have not yet been scientifically ascertained even if as regards the essential oil of eucalyptus there are already results of studies that demonstrate its effectiveness against different bacteria and viruses.
Eucalyptus honey contains many antioxidants and in particular, the flavonoids that contribute to maintaining the well-being of the body because they reduce free radicals that are responsible for cellular ageing. Eucalyptus honey thus becomes food that can be taken as prevention to degenerative diseases and in the case of inflammatory phenomena so much that researches that they compare different types of honey and have declared eucalyptus honey as the best antioxidant and anti-ageing.
Among its properties we need to mention the support in cases of bronchitis and sinusitis because it has expectorant and mucolytic power; in fact, it manages to thin the mucus and catarrhs, freeing the nasal passages and the respiratory system in general. The presence of propolis thus also adds to honey the antiviral and antibacterial properties that favour the use of eucalyptus honey against any external attack caused by viruses or bacteria. A study on Italian eucalyptus honey has shown that this honey has a strong efficacy against a particular bacterium, Staphylococcus aureus, responsible for some forms of respiratory tract disease.
How to use eucalyptus honey
Remember that the active substances inside honey are sensitive to heat and light so to preserve the beneficial and organoleptic properties of honey it is good to use it fresh and natural and keep it away from sources of heat and light. It is always advisable to choose honey from organic farming to have a better guarantee of the absence of synthetic chemicals both in the environment where the bees go to collect pollen and in those used during beekeeping practices. A piece of good advice to increase the effectiveness is the use of a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil in eucalyptus honey and in association with propolis for an enhanced synergistic action useful in any situation of airways discomfort and of the respiratory system.
Eucalyptus honey in the kitchen
Eucalyptus honey is associated with seasoned and savoury cheeses such as parmesan and parmesan or with low-fat cheeses. It is also excellent in plain white yoghurt, but not recommended combinations in case of flu and the presence of mucus when it is recommended to avoid products derived from milk. In this case, it is better to choose tea with eucalyptus honey; the best combination is with strong teas with cinnamon or ginger, also excellent in cases of colds. Eucalyptus honey is however perfect to accompany first and second courses of fish and mixed vegetables simply seasoned with oil, lemon and eucalyptus honey.
My passion for the world of bees was born thanks to my brother-in-law who asked me to go with him to help him manage the few hives he had. Slowly I began to get more and more passionate until I decide to make of my passion, my job. This is how my journey in this world began and finally on May 30th 2019 I managed to open my company.
My company is a small working reality that I personally take care of, trying to reconcile both the management of the company and the care of bees. It is located in Bagaladi, a small town in Reggio Calabria Province, located at the foot of the Tuccio valley and which represents one of the gateways to the Aspromonte National Park (Calabria, Italy).
From the chosen name, Miele Del Tuccio, you can understand what my purpose is: in addition to wanting to carry out an indispensable work for the world, my purpose is to respect and enhance my land by producing products of the highest quality, using this that it offers me.
As a company, I produce 4 types of honey: wildflower, chestnut, eucalyptus and wildflower flavoured with bergamot, citrus that is produced only in the province of Reggio Calabria. As already mentioned, to make the most of my land, all 4 of my types of honey are produced only and exclusively within my valley.
