Overview

Linden honey – it is one of the most valuable and best varieties of honey. Bees collect it from the nectar of greenish yellow flowers of the queen of  honey plants, as the people rightly called linden.
Flavor of the honey is described as a fresh woody with a hint of mint, balsamic and camphor aroma. Linden honey is sweet, sometimes with a touch of bitterness. After it you can always feel persistent aftertaste and light astringency.
About 3 months after pumping the lime honey begins to crystallize: it thickens and loses its transparency.
One lime of middle age, growing in favorable conditions, with optimal weather conditions can give 40 or more pounds of high-grade honey, 1 ha of blossom lime gives more than 2500 pounds. Each flower gives 25 ml of nectar.

Cough Suppressant

Researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine claim that honey may offer more relief to those suffering from an upper respiratory infection and cough than for individuals taking an over-the-counter medication containing dextromethorphan, or DM. The Penn State study, published in the December 2007 "Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine," involved 105 children and their parents separated into three groups. The first group of children was given honey, the second were given a dose of honey flavored DM medication and the third received nothing. The results concluded that the children who had received honey experienced a significant reduction in the severity, frequency and annoyance of their nighttime cough -- more so than the children who received a dose of DM medication. The researchers asserted that honey is an effective and safe alternative to treating an upper respiratory infection and cough in children over the age of 12 months.


Nectar to Honey

A colony of honeybees collecting nectar can gather up to 290 pounds of nectar per acre, according to "Insect Pollination of Cultivated Crop Plants," by S.E. McGregor. After forager bees collect the nectar, which is mostly water with a small amount of sucrose, they transfer it to hive bees for processing. Hive bees biochemically transform the nectar into honey by regurgitating it multiple times, a process that reduces the water content. Simultaneously, invertase, a salivary enzyme, breaks down the sucrose in the nectar — essentially predigesting it — into its component simple sugars, glucose and fructose.
