Types of Bashkir white honey, useful properties and contraindications

The color of natural honey has all shades of amber, from almost transparent, golden to dark thick, rich in copper - this is a common pattern that needs to be refuted. First you need to decide: honey has a wider color gamut. From all shades of yellow and brown to white. And white honey, in fact, not such a rarity. Of course, it should not be pure white - it is a complex natural product of bee-processed nectar. It may contain nuances of cream, yellow, green and even gray.

White honey is rarely monofleral, but most often it is dominated by the nectar of such honey plants as linden, cornflower, cotton, acacia, plantain, willow herb, fescue, barn, clover, camel thorn or clover, or there may be a combination of them, for example, acacia and clover. On sale it is found only in the form of saturation, that is, crystallized.


When purchasing an unusual product, you should ask why white honey:

  • If honey crystallized on its own, then there should be no questions about its value or composition - this is the result of a natural process. He retained all the beneficial properties, just became solid and, quite often, rather uncomfortable to use, because the nectar of each plant has a different ratio of fructose and glucose in the composition. Density depends on it: the more fructose, the longer the product thickens and the softer it is in the end.
  • Some beekeepers are subjected to artificial crystallization in order to make the consistency convenient for filling and application. After that, it acquires the structure of a soft and plastic cream. This is absolutely natural white honey. However, the analysis of pollen grains does not necessarily reveal the presence of plants, the processed nectar of which subsequently independently settles into a mass of white. Sometimes even honey from sunflower in whipped form becomes similar to sweet clover. In such cases, you need to be interested in the main honey plant and acquire the one that is more like, and most importantly: beware of fakes.

The technology of turning ordinary honey into a cream is not a secret, it retains all the benefits of a natural bee product and is very popular in Canada. Gradually, she conquers the world and it is often possible to see how our beekeepers in an attempt to conquer the market make at least a quality honey cream:

  • For this, natural honey in large containers is first kept at low temperatures (about two weeks at 12-140 ° C), and then stirred until a cream is formed at a temperature not higher than 280 ° C.
  • sometimes freshly added product is added (in a ratio of 9: 1), then the process goes faster: it is simply stirred for a long time at high speed until the desired consistency is reached.

Such a product retains all the properties of a natural delicacy and acquires an additional bonus: it is easy to use, but the cost price of such white honey has more than usual.

White honey title. Color, taste, smell

White nectar is very popular in Europe, the CIS and the USA. Bee product is something like butter and was loved by children most of all. Before you consider the beneficial properties, it is necessary to determine what is called white honey.

Today, a single name for the product has not been invented. Most likely, such a name describes those varieties that after assembly have a light shade. It is worth noting that golden-amber varieties will also acquire a whitish color during crystallization. Today, a special technology has been invented, which, with the help of whipping, allows you to create white honey masses.


The duration of the process of sugaring directly depends on what kind of honey is used. The period can be from one to three months. Crystallization occurs faster in those varieties where glucose prevails over the amount of fructose.

Sugared or not?

When sugared crystals are formed evenly throughout the bank. Any variety crystallizes, and the following external factors can affect the speed of the process:

  • air humidity,
  • degree of maturity
  • pretreatment before honey was poured into cans
  • storage temperature.


The composition of white honey directly depends on what kind of honey plants the hive was located. You can only select the main components of white nectar:

  • fructose,
  • glucose,
  • sucrose
  • water,
  • organic acids

In order to understand what white honey is made of, it is worth considering honey plants. White nectar is obtained if pollen prevails:

From honey plants such as acacia, borax, linden, they also get light varieties, but they can have light greenish and amber shades.

Why is honey white and thick?

White nectar becomes after sugar, and its density depends on maturity:

  • too liquid - honey not ripened in honeycombs (the beekeeper hurried to gather it),
  • thick nectar - a phase that determines the subsequent crystallization.

Only the collected bee product can not be too thick or, conversely, pour like water. Sweetness should drip off the spoon evenly.

White bloom on honey in the bank - what does it mean? Why white honey is important to know

In addition to crystallization, nectar can flow to flowering, that is, when a white bloom on honey forms in the jar. Such a layer appeared due to the saccharification of glucose, which rose to the top of the can. The thickness of the crystallization process is quite rare. The height of the white bloom is no more than 5 mm.

Treatment of diseases

White nectar is used as a sweet, an ingredient in homemade masks, and is also actively used for medical purposes. Often, doctors may recommend the use of honey as a source of vitamins and minerals for the treatment of colds and for moisturizing the skin.

How to fake

Unscrupulous vendors add water, colorants and thickeners to nectar. Unfortunately, the usual buyer will not be able to determine the chemical composition, but visually such products can be detected. To check whether there is water, which in the future may lead to the appearance of mold, it is necessary to drip honey on a napkin. If there is an areola around the drop, it means that water was additionally added to the composition.

When adding chemicals, the product may have a heterogeneous composition and even stratify in a can. Honey should drip down a spoonful of the same mass, and not fall into pieces or pour like syrup.

How to distinguish from fake white honey

A thick natural product that is closer to the consistency of the oil is likely to contain chemical additives. Nectar can not be as white as snow. In any case, there will be a golden or greenish tint.

Bee product has always been and remains a natural and useful dessert that is widely distributed throughout the world. Due to its beneficial properties and rich composition, it is possible to carry out prevention and speed up the treatment of many diseases.

What are they getting from?

White honey can be seen, most likely, at special fairs. It is worth figuring out what white honey is made of and how this healing product is called. This honey is obtained when bees collect nectar from certain plants. These include raspberries, lindens, acacia, sweet clover, fireweed, alfalfa, salvaras and other honey plants. Interestingly, the flowers in the plant honey plants can be not only white, but also have purple, purple or lilac color. Their color will not affect the color of the finished product.

It should be noted that the color of the product after pumping will not initially be white, so it becomes after a while. Pouring from the honey extractor, honey has a golden color with a greenish tinge. After saccharification of the product, it changes color and looks almost white. Candied honey is often with a grayish, yellowish or other shade. The consistency of the product is more like butter.

White honey is especially appreciated for the fact that after crystallization its useful properties even increase. Unfortunately, in natural conditions, it is not so common, because it requires certain honey culture. Often, to get white honey, beekeepers have to travel far from home to the fields planted with agricultural crops such as rape, sweet clover and sainfoin. It is difficult to get a product of completely white color, since other honey plants often grow next to the fields, which can affect the color of the finished product. In nature, large areas of honey plants are less common.

There is a large number of varieties of this sweet and healthy product. It can be of different colors, ranging from white, clear, amber and even dark brown. Honey of such an unusual color is less popular, but at the same time very tasty and healthy. It should be clarified that it is not only one type. The product is a creamy white color obtained from different honey plants. Varieties may vary in taste, smell and properties, but they are all predominantly white. More common are the varieties that are produced by bees from clover or rape, but from fireweed, raspberry, angelica or lindens, it is rather difficult to find sweetness.

It is worth considering in more detail the popular varieties of white honey.

This variety can be found quite rarely, despite the fact that raspberries grow in almost every garden. The product has a delicate taste and a bright aroma, in which the smell of raspberry flowers is felt. After pumping the product has a transparent color with amber notes, soon after crystallization the color of the product becomes creamy. Raspberry sweetness is recommended for the prevention of viral diseases. Thanks to such a valuable product, you can strengthen the immune system, cure a cold.

This grade receive during linden flowering. After pumping honey has a transparent color with an amber tint. When it crystallizes, it becomes dense with large and small crystals. Healing linden honey is an excellent tool to prevent viral diseases. A fragrant drink with the addition of a spoon of honey can alleviate cold symptoms. Due to the diaphoretic action, it should be consumed during the flu or ARVI to combat temperature and infection.

The taste and color of white honey, why got this name

White honey immediately after pumping has a light yellow color, and is called so, because after crystallization becomes almost whitelike butter. Its taste is different and depends on the honey plant. If the bees took nectar from raspberry or rose flowers, the aroma of such honey is delicate. The taste is sweet, without bitterness. It melts in the mouth, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.

What turns out, what honey plant?

Since there are a lot of honey plants in white honey, the nectar harvest period is extended over time. It begins in spring and ends in autumn.

White acacia nectar harvested in the southern regions of the country in May. It is in these areas that it is distributed, so honey is obtained without impurities. This honey plant blooms for two weeks, and nectar is collected in about ten days. Despite such a short time, the bees have time to produce honey in large volumes. For example, from one hectare of acacia stands up to 0.8 tons of honey are produced.

Bee collects nectar on a flower of white acacia

White honey also comes out of limewhich blooms profusely in June-July, depending on the climatic conditions of growth. A bee collects nectar from a single honey tree to produce up to 15 kg of honey. With 1 hectare of plantings - about one ton.

Raspberry is of particular interest to bees.. It blooms from May to August - during the hottest period of the year. It depends on the variety and growing conditions. In remontant varieties, the flowering period is extended. Bees are happy to collect nectar from this plant due to its aroma. The same is obtained and honey - fragrant, fragrant and sweet.

Storage conditions

In order to preserve longer the beneficial properties of white honey, its stored at a temperature of +5 to +18 degrees.

The period of crystallization depends on the honey plant and is determined by several months. Air humidity preferably kept around 60%. Direct sunlight affects the structure of honey. Under these storage conditions, it retains its beneficial properties of one and a half - two years. The best container - glass. Plastic food suitable for transportation and temporary storage.

Ways to get natural white honey

Many lovers of bee products are interested in the question of what white honey is made of. Immediately, we note that making white honey is very difficult. The most important point is that the apiary should be as far as possible from the honey plants, whose nectar gives the honey dark shades. This is the only way to get white honey.

How to make white honey? Above, we have already said that the most important condition that must be observed is to place an apiary near the desired honey plant, but at the same time, there should not be areas with plants that give nectar of dark shades nearby. At first glance, a simple task is actually very difficult.

Why is white honey? After the crystallization is complete, a white deposit is formed on the surface of the nectar. It is the presence of this additional layer that caused the appearance of such a name. In addition, white scurf speaks of high quality and naturalness of the product.

How to recognize a fake?

As mentioned above, white honey varieties are very valuable. That is why scammers try to fake them. When buying bee sweets, you must be able to distinguish a natural product from counterfeit. In order not to fall for the tricks of fraudsters, it is necessary to pay attention to such signs:

  1. Natural white honey has a consistency of oil and about the same viscosity.
  2. It is best to purchase donnikovye, acacia and lime varieties, since they are easiest to distinguish from fakes.
  3. White varieties are not always pure white, sometimes light green or yellow shades are seen in them.
  4. Buy the product you need only from proven beekeepers. As visiting merchants can easily shove a fake. The situation is similar with fairs.

Cold storage

It is not necessary to keep white honey in the refrigerator, because our ancestors did without this miracle of technology. But if you have not found any other place, you can put bee sweetness here. The main thing is that the humidity meets the requirements and the temperature conditions are respected.

White honey is collected from several honey plants, so its composition may be different. The product contains 38-41% fructose, 33-36% glucose, 23-29% moisture, as well as sucrose and other trace elements.

In total, the product contains several hundred different minerals and trace elements. Among them I would like to mention fluorine, zinc, nickel and copper.

Do not forget about amino acids, which are the most important source of energy and are easily absorbed by the body. As for vitamins, there are groups B, C, K and E.

100 g of "bee gift" contains 320 kcal.

Types of Desserts with Honey

If you look wider at the situation, you may find that in addition to white honey, there are several delicacies that are tried to give a milky shade in order to increase its value:

  1. Honey of any kind can be made white, for this it is enough to whip it at low speed. Western beekeepers came up with this trick, and more recently, they have begun to actively use ours. Many cooks use this technique in the preparation of cream honey or cream souffle. Make this dessert at home can anyone.
  2. There is another method of obtaining white honey - dramatically increase the amount of sugar in the diet of bees. But such a product does not bear any benefit and does not possess the healing properties of natural white nectar. In addition, large amounts of sugar in the feed can greatly harm our workers.
  3. Some beekeepers add royal jelly to it to increase the usefulness of white honey. So, the resulting product really acquires unique healing properties, but has one major drawback - not long stored. Buying honey with royal jelly on the market, be extremely careful, because there is a high risk to purchase a fake.
  4. The Americans came up with another way to make white honey. But they present it not as a healing product, but as a delicacy. To make an American dessert, mix honey, gelatin, cardamom, hops, water and bring to a boil over low heat. After that, the mixture is drawn and the result is a delicious dessert.

Summing up

White honey varieties have unique characteristics and a large number of useful properties. This nectar is considered to be elite and highly rated among beekeepers. Actively used in medicine for the treatment of various diseases. Unscrupulous beekeepers are trying to fake white honey, so be extremely careful and buy bee sweetness only from proven beekeepers.

Taste and appearance

If we talk about an absolutely pure bee product without dyes and additives, then it will have a slightly creamy color, since it is simply impossible to force the bees to collect nectar exclusively from those plants that are best suited. Consequently, some of the "raw materials" will give a darker shade, so the product will have a color from dark yellow to light cream.

As for taste, then everything depends on the honey plant. For example, if most of the nectar was collected from the clover flowers, then the sweetness will have a vanilla flavor. It is precisely because each individual honey plant gives its unique taste and aroma, to describe the general notes that are present in any white honey is almost impossible.

Popular varieties

Popular products include such products, for which nectar from plants common in the CIS is required.

These include the following variations: raspberry, white clover honey, alfalfa and cotton.

These are the most common variants of light-colored honey. There are other honey plants, from which you can get white sweetness (mint, canola, sage and others).

Rare varieties

The most rare variety is kandyk honey, as this plant is listed in the Red Book, and its area of ​​growth is annually reduced. It is incredibly difficult to find a product from a kandyk, so it is expensive

Other rare varieties include cypraic, tavolgovy and apple-cherry.

Chemical composition

The composition of white honey consists of phenolic acids, flavonoids and other substances, such as apigenin, crisin, pinocembrin and acacetin. It contains more vitamins, enzymes and active substances than other varieties. Also contains water (up to 20%), organic acids (up to 0.1%), cane sugar (up to 0.4%), inverted sugar (up to 82%), glucose (37%), dextrins (8%) , ash (up to 0.65%) and fructose (up to 41%).

Can I make white honey at home

It should immediately be said that it is extremely difficult to get 100% natural white honey at home without using any other impurities. However, there are several options that will give the desired color of sweetness without harm to taste and rich composition.

The first option - a mixture with royal jelly. Perhaps this is the most natural and useful product. By adding royal jelly, you not only get the desired color, but also increase the value of the original product. The point is that it is quite difficult to take royal jelly in its pure form, since it is possible to exceed the dose, which will have a negative effect on the body. But using a mixture of two bee products, you get a huge amount of useful vitamins and trace elements and do not worry about the dosage.

The second option - beating fresh honey. This option provides for the machining of freshly pumped product, after which it acquires a creamy color and retains it until crystallization (about a year). It looks like margarine, it does not stick to fingers and leaves no greasy marks. Some varieties even improve their performance (rapeseed) after such manipulations.

How to distinguish a fake

Now we know what white honey is and what a product of an unusual color is made of. Since some qualities of white sweetness are overestimated, its price is several times higher than the price of darker varieties than unscrupulous sellers use, offering various fakes.

You should start with the fact that the product should not be whiter than the container in which it is sold. Most often, to emphasize the unusualness, a fake is made too white, which is why it looks like sour cream.

The second indicator - the consistency. As mentioned above, the only honey that initially has white color (before sugar consumption) is threshing. If you are sure that this plant does not grow in your region, it means that the product is false. If the color turned out as a result of machining, then check it is not difficult (does not leave stains on clothes).

The third indicator - the smell. Any bee product should smell like flowers. In the case where the sweetness gives caramel, cocoa or anything else that is not comparable with the natural smell of flowering plants, then you have a fake.

This concludes the discussion of white honey. Do not exaggerate the beneficial properties of this sweet, as any bee product is extremely useful for humans. If you want to increase the utility, then you should add bee milk. Use our recommendations to distinguish the original from the fake.

What is whipped honey

Nature has taken care that bees, collecting sweet nectar from plants, create a useful natural product. The man came up with a way to improve it, while maintaining its taste and properties. Whipped honey is a beekeeping product with a creamy consistency, obtained by applying a special technology to obtain a light color and crystallization. You can make a honey delicacy at home using a blender or mixer, but whipping the sweet mass will take at least half an hour or more.

What are white honey made of?

The air consistency is maintained for a long time, which is facilitated by the mechanical processing of the freshly collected and pumped out bee product. The crystallization process will take a whole year, which will confirm the quality of the delicacy with a delicate taste, if a natural beekeeping product is used to make it. White honey is made with the addition of royal jelly, but offers to buy such a creamy delicacy cheaply should be alerted - this is a very valuable and rare composition, therefore the price for it is consistently high.

Why is he white

The natural or mechanical method, in which it is necessary to observe the temperature conditions, is a simple explanation of why honey is white. Fresh bee product is collected from certain honey plants, and it whitens, retaining a greenish or amber shade, after crystallization. Since the volume of this pure white honey delicacy is very small, a large amount of rich and delicate delicacy can taste if you beat the usual honey and make it freeze.

The benefits of lime

Natural light shade of lime honey has a delicate balsamic aroma. After crystallization, which lasts six months, the honey delicacy of linden flowers does not cease to possess its unique smell, but becomes thick, becomes light yellow in color and still retains excellent healing properties. It will not be difficult to find an application for the beneficial properties of linden honey - from colds, diseases of the liver, kidneys, bladder, heart, nervous system to the general strengthening of the body.

The benefits of raspberry

Blooming raspberries attract bees so much that these insects can simply ignore other honey plants, collecting nectar from their home or wild shrubs.

Valery, 32 years

From a trip to the Altai Mountains, I brought a large jar of taiga honey. At a cost not much more expensive than good vitamins from the pharmacy, but a natural product, and even with the cedar scent of taiga! I ate on an empty stomach in the morning on a tablespoon all winter and spring. There was no cold, not even a cold in the whole time, there was enough cheerfulness and energy, a good sleep. Very pleased with the purchase.

I was sure that honey itself is such a product that causes allergies. And then it turned out that if sugar is used in manufacturing, the reaction cannot be avoided. I was looking for a variant of a useful dessert for the child, so they advised me to buy acacia honey, but it must be clean, free of impurities. Then it is considered safe for allergies.

I was surprised when I heard the question of whether there is white honey? It happens, and even some! I was lucky to try cotton, rapeseed, Bashkir White Rose, from alfalfa. Each taste is unique, as well as healing properties. I stock up on jars for the future at the honey fair, where prices are low, and rare varieties of 600 rubles per kilo can be found.
