What are the determinantes and factors than affect honey?

There are many types of honey, depending on the type of the honey producing flora from which the nectar is collected. Most famous honeys are: acacia, forest, meadow, linden, sunflower, etc. It should be known that quality of honey, and other bee’s products, depends from the quality of the soil from which the nectar is collected. Nectar collected from degraded surfaces (near large chimneys, land poisoned with chemicals….) cannot provide quality honey.

The best quality are those that bees collected in ecologically pure areas such as remote areas, forest, meadows at higher altitude and ones that aren’t degraded. Since honey mostly contains those ingredients that are contained in the soil it is natural to expect that more quality honey in regard to mineral ingredients will be located at areas that are located above spas, mineral springs, and similar. This means, that the quality of honey and quality of other bees products largely depends on the existing primary damage of the soil surface, and every day, and every day, permanent secondary damage of the soil (degrading of the same in various ways), which must be taken into account in future work with bees. The quality of honey depends on numerous types of plant from which the nectar is collected. Meadow and forest honey are considered among the best quality honeys, because it is collected from more than hundred different plants. Honey doesn’t lose its properties and can be preserved for a long time.

The quality of honey is affected by the human, that is, the bee keeper. Good honey is the honey that is mature, that is, honey that has been “dried: by bees and closed by their wax. For that reason it cannot be rushed with collecting honey while bees do not complete their work. Otherwise this honey will due to large quantity of water quickly crystallized or spoil.
