Artisan Millefiori honey - The Italian Club
The Artisan Honeys by The Italian Club are part of our exclusive selection. All the products we have chosen are an emblem of quality and genuineness. Our honey is produced by a small family-run company located in the province of Salerno that deals with the production of honey and derivatives of the highest quality. The bees are looked after with great attention and are transported to uncontaminated fields and orchards in the Irno valley and in the Picentini mountains. All the honey we have selected are produced in a completely natural way, without the addition of additives or preservatives and without undergoing the pasteurization process which inevitably alters their organoleptic and nutritional qualities. The lack of pasteurization means that the honey with winter temperatures tends to crystallization, a completely natural phenomenon, and synonymous with high-quality honey, if you need to bring it back to a softer state, just heat it slightly in a bain-marie.
“Millefiori” (thousand flowers) is also known as wildflower honey. This is one of the most common types of honey available but as well one of the rarest ones.
The millefiori honey is made from the nectars of the flowers in a particular place at a particular time. Due to this unique and general characteristic, it is essentially impossible to reproduce its unique color, aroma, and flavors from year to year.
However, there are several countries that take bees to similar places that have a predominant mix of flora that gives nectar of recognizable flavor that is very consistent year after year.

The Doctor says:
Honey has several beneficial properties, the most important being antibacterial and antibiotic. In addition to stopping superficial infections, honey alleviates the symptoms of gastric ulcers and also has a detoxifying action on the liver.
Honey can be used both simply as a natural sweetener instead of refined sugar or spread on a slice of toast but also as an accompaniment to medium and long-aged cheeses. It is also widely used in many dessert recipes.
