How is lotus honey produced?
Generally, honey is obtained by bee flying over the flowers of trees and bushes, especially the sidr trees. Honey production is usually in late summer and early autumn in southern provinces, especially in Bushehr province. Honey bees slightly compact this nectar in their second stomach - the nectary - and add a little enzyme to it. Then it transfers this nectar and pollen to the hive and empties the hexagonal cell. The main work starts here.
One of the most innovative and amazing ways to preserve food in nature! Bees living in the hive make this liquid thicker and more characteristic by flapping and reprocessing. After reducing honey moisture and adding honey enzymes, some bees secrete a thin layer on these hexagonal cells. And in fact, they cover it like canned food. After a period of two to three weeks, this honey reaches the so-called. Then we take these ready honeys from the hive and transfer them to the workshop. After removing the wax layer, we put it in a centrifugal machine and pack the honey in hygienic and clean containers.
Important note: We do not add any ingredients to it. Everything is what the bee received from the flowers and turned into honey.
