LEGENDARY HONEY FROM THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF IKARIA, GREECE
Honey from the "ancient healing island" of Ikaria is of particularly high quality and is revered by the famously long-lived Ikarians.
This very rare honey, perhaps the best in the world, is 100% pure, natural, unheated and unpasteurized. Its special characteristics are a function of the unique environment in which the indigenous bees gather their pollen. It has a dark amber color and is thicker and richer than most honey with a unique delicious flavor.
Ikaria is free from industrialization and due its mountainous and undulating rocky terrain, conventional farming is not practiced. The island is therefore free from chemical pollutants that contaminate both air, land and water, leaving the bees to gather their pollen in a pristine, if not perfect, environment.
“Honey from Ikaria contains anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and is eaten often” says Mr. Beuttner, who named Ikaria one of the 5 “Blue Zones” in the world for longevity.
