TREA Wildflower honey is harvested from colonies of bees that roam freely to collect nectar from the flowers blooming in abundance in Thassos island.
Once foraged by the bees and harvested from the hives, honey is being constantly evaluated as to its composition and quality. It is the biodiversity of the flora of the area along with the extended sunshine and the wind that offers its silky essence. After being extracted from the combs, honey is stored in large tanks before being bottled. Finally, it is cold packed by hand without the addition of artificial additives or flavorings.

Crystallization*: it does not crystallize easily due to low sugar and water concentration.
*Crystallization is a natural phenomenon that causes pure raw honey to become thick and cloudy. Honey is a super-saturated solution of two sugars: glucose and fructose. Glucose sugar separates from water and become crystals, while fructose remains as a liquid. The best way to convert honey into smooth liquid is to apply a heating method with warm water that should not exceed 35°C, otherwise its nutritious properties will be destroyed.
