Sicilian Black Bee Honey - Slow Food Presidium

Sicilian Black Bee Honey

Sicilian Black Bee honey is a Sicilian nectar that became a Slow Food Presidium thanks to the beekeeper Carlo Amodeo. In fact, he has avoided the extinction of the Sicilian Black Bee, a subspecies of the African black bee with respect to which it is more docile, and has promoted the reintroduction of this precious species in those areas of western Sicily where there is less possibility of contamination of the honey. It is cold and hand extracted. It is a precious honey for its high content of polyphenols, antioxidants, antibacterial and antifungal substances not found in other types of honey.
