Honeydew Honey

Category: Honey

Honeydew honey, also known as secretion honey, is a type of honey produced by Marchalina hellenica (Basra beetle), which lives in pine trees. Marchalina hellenica absorbs pine tree sap and lives in this way. It is obtained by taking the honey dew secreted by the basra beetle by honeybees and storing it in the honeycomb eye.

Honeydew honey contains plenty of substances such as pinocembrin (antioxidant found only in honey), pinobaxin (antioxidant), galagin (antioxidant) and chirisin (antioxidant). Pinocembrin is an antioxidant found only in honeydew honey.
