Torchiato citrus honey


It is a honey extracted by pressing the honeycombs with the pressing method.

The classic method of honey extraction involves centrifugation; it is in fact by means of the centrifuge that the honey is usually extracted from the honeycombs. Just to get this honey, Torchiato, we use another one instead

extraction method ... pressing!

Therefore, the very pure operculum wax and the honeycomb portions are placed in a special stainless steel press and pressed for a long time until the total release of honey.

Then we collect the honey manually and without filtering it we let it pour into a special stainless steel maturator where, according to its natural times, it will spontaneously release the excess wax pushing it to the surface. Only at the end of the slow and natural ripening process can the honey be placed in the jars.

We therefore obtain a honey richer in pollen and wax, in which all the nutritional, organoleptic and beneficial properties of each variety of honey are obviously preserved.

The result is a PRESSED HONEY:
