SUNFLOWER HONEY

Sunflower is an agricultural plant grown in large quantities in Thrace Region in Turkey. Sunflower is a well known oily plant, that when it begins to pollinate presents a very important bee pasture. Sunflower flowers give bees during favorable year abundance of nectar and pollen powder. It blooms in the beginning of July and lasts for 20 days, and in areas where there are differences in planting time it can prolong the pasture up to a month. Nectar is mostly secreted during warm days and with morning dews at a temperature of 24-30 C. Sunflower honey’s color varies from yellow to orange. It has a pleasant taste. People unjustly avoid it due to its fast crystallizing property. Consuming crystallized honey is very useful because by long-lasting melting of crystals of honey through sub-tongue glands all beneficial substances, by a shortest way possible, are introduced in the organism. Sunflower honey has a pleasant taste and smell. Specific structure of sunflower makes this honey recognizable. Sunflower honey contains enzymes, minerals, organic acids, vitamins.

FLOWER HONEY

Honey produced by bees from a wide variety of flowers, in which no particular species of flower predominates. Its colour and flavour can vary: from amber to darker tones, and from sweeter to more intense flavours. Slow to crystallize in small crystals. Flower honey is produced in Eastern Anatolia, Black Sea Region and Southeastern Anatolia.

PINE HONEY

Pine honey is produced by honey bees that collect honeydew (‘‘basura’’) from a scale insect species (‘‘Marchalina hellenica’’) which live on some certain pine tree species (‘‘Pinus brutia’’ and ‘‘Pinus pinea’’). Insect species form a white bundle of cotton-like wax on the front of the tree which can easily be seen by human being. Those insect species produce honeydew honey from the pine tree extracts in the summer months towards August which dangle from pine trees in lines. Honeybees carrying honey into the beehives fly in the pine forests carrying pine tree extracts around. Honeybees process these raw extracts with their secretions and carry them into their beehives which then are placed into the honeycombs by the worker bees. The pine tree is produced by the honey bees collecting the honeydew from pine tree, processing it with their own secretions, carrying into the beehives and maturing in the honeycombs by evaporating the water contained in the mixture. Pine honey is produced in the towns of Mugla-Marmaris-Aydin-Kusadasi and close surroundings of these towns. The most important characteristic of pine honey is that it can be kept for longer durations without its texture corrupts or crystallizes. Its colour is darker than the flower honey. Pine honey has a wider range of usage area in various products in medicine and food industries and it is a product with major export potential.
