This dark brown, exquisite honey speciality comes from the nectar of sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa) and is a honey for real connoisseurs. Thanks to its strong, malty and slightly bitter flavours, it adopts a very special position in the honey spectrum. Along with its strong flavour, it is characterised by a rather subtle sweetness. This chestnut honey is harvested in the north west of Italy in the Piemont region.
Honey is a natural product.
There may be natural variations in appearance, color and flavor. Almost every untreated honey crystallizes sooner or later, depending on the variety. Crystallization does not detract from the quality of the honey. Many connoisseurs prefer spreadable, crystallized, candied honey. By warming it in a water bath at temperatures of up to 40°C, the honey liquefies quickly.
Like other raw food products, honey should not be given to infants under the age of 12 months.
