a) Why buy organic honey?
Honey is one of the products we can buy that may contain traces of agrochemicals. For this reason, we should always consume organic honey.
First of all, organic honey is free of any chemical and antibiotic products that could be found in small traces in conventional honeys. Also, organic honeys undergo more rigorous controls by official certification bodies, conforming to national and European regulations.
More important than whether the honey is organic or not, is that the honey is of high quality and unpasteurised, i.e. we must buy raw honey from the year. Consequently, in addition to being organic, we must also make sure that the honey has not been pasteurised or mixed with other substitutes.
In summary, we can say that it is very important to ensure that the honey is organic, but that it is well preserved and as natural as possible.

b) Difference between conventional and organic raw honey
The differences between organic and conventional raw honey are analysed from three points of view: taste and aroma, quality and control.
From the point of view of taste and aroma, the differences between organic and conventional honey are non-existent. The fact that it is organic has nothing to do with the aroma or flavour.
From the point of view of quality, if the two honeys come from serious beekeepers who do not manipulate it, the quality of an organic honey and a conventional honey would be the same.
From a control point of view, organic honey beats conventional honey. Organic honey undergoes much more rigorous controls by the state organism. Organic hives are visited and inspected at short notice and the honey batches are analysed very carefully.

We currently have a wide variety of organic honeys. Among them, we can find the following: Orange blossom, heather, lavender, lavender, strawberry tree, thousand flowers, rosemary and thyme.
