It is one of the most popular honeys in the world for its mild taste and lightly fragrant bouquet. Honeybees create it from the harvested nectar of acacia. The various types of acacia are widespread throughout Georgia including the dominant False Acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia). Georgian beekeepers harvest acacia honey at the end of the spring. The honey has a light transparent color with a rose-gold tint and sweet orange and floral notes.
It is mild and easily digestible. Due to the high consistency of fructose, it crystalizes more slowly than other types of honey. As it is very sweet, it is used as a healthier alternative to sugar, even recommended for people with diabetes; has anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effect and is used as as prevention of stomach and duodenum ulcers. It is a natural post workout recovery food.
