Api Selvatica produces acacia honey on the Appenines of Bologna, where the acacia blooms at the beginning of May.
Acacia honey is light in color.
It has a light scent sometimes more floral, some other more vegetal that reminds the one of the hive, wax.
It has a delicate candied flavor that reminds vanilla.
This honey remains liquid for a long time and crystallizes very slowly.
The crystallization takes place between 5 ° C and 25 ° C, around 14 ° C occurs faster and is determined by the percentages of glucose and fructose present in honey, the higher is that of glucose the greater the speed of crystallization (the honey is 75% formed by monosaccharides glucose and fructose).
Honey can be stored in the freezer.
The light deteriorates faster the organoleptic characteristics.
The production and the availability of monofloral honeys vary depending on the climatic conditions of the season.
