Propolis, and Everything You Need to Know About It
The word propolis comes from the Greek language and means ‘before the city’, ‘around the gate’. It stems from the observation that bees deposit propolis around the exits of beehives.
What is propolis?
It is the generic name given to a product obtained from resinous substances collected by bees from the buds, branches, and leaves of trees and use to protect the hive. The sap is used to fill cracks and small holes in the walls of a hive and repair honeycombs to prevent bacteria and viruses entering the hive and making members of the colony sick.
The properties of propolis
In general, propolis is yellowish brownish but colours can greatly vary depending on the type of vegetation it was collected from. It has a nice, sweet aroma, but a strong, tart taste. It is sometimes mixed with honey or used to make flavoured liquors. Propolis has anti-inflammatory properties.
Components of propolis
Propolis is made from around 200 components. Major components are resins, balsams (50-60%), waxes (10-30%), aromatic oils (8-10%), pollens, vitamins and trace elements. It also contains fat-soluble acaricides that are natural insecticides.
The most significant active ingredients in propolis are flavonoids. Recent discoveries have shown that flavonoids are very beneficial for health. Other active substances in propolis are chalcones, terpenes, phenols and phenol esters, polysaccharides, viatmins (B1, B2, B6, C, E), amino acids, enzymes, minerals like iron, copper, magnesium, calcium, silicon, manganese, zinc, aluminium, cobalt, and so on. Propolis is proven to contain ferulic acid that has antibacterial properties when applied on the skin.
The health benefits of propolis
It has been known for thousands of years that propolis is beneficial for health. In traditional medicine, it has been used for a very long time. It can be taken orally and/or applied to the skin. It helps with wound healing due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory effect.
It has a general positive effect on organ systems and cells thanks to its anti-ageing, regenerating, and cleansing properties. It has no adverse effect on the gut flora. It helps with detoxication and regeneration. As an analgesic, it is three times more effective than cocaine and five times more effective than novocaine.
External use: Treatment of wounds, dermatitis, inflammation of the mucosa, scratches, cuts, joint pain, arthritis. It accelerates epidermal recovery and has antibacterial effects.
Internal use: Propolis has been successfully used to treat respiratory diseases, urinary tract infection, inflammation of the prostate and the parotid gland. It acts as vasodilator on the capillaries and helps regulate blood pressure. Long term daily consumption of propolis helps maintain a strong and healthy immune system. Gargling with warm propolis tincture helps with sore throat and cold. Dabbing canker sores with propolis tincture promotes healing of the sores. Many people find that daily consumption of propolis can help with erectile dysfunction. It also inhibits the growth of cancer cells in the large intestine.
Forms of application of propolis
Propolis tincture is the most common way of application of propolis. It is made by dissolving propolis in alcohol and straining out the precipitate. It is a dark brown liquid with a honey-alcoholic smell and taste. It can be used both externally and internally (topically or taken orally). The tincture can be mixed with a glass of lemonade, water, tea or a tablespoon of honey. Or sugar cubes can be infused with it. It tastes good and has multiple health benefits. The recommended daily dosage of propolis tincture is 15-20 drops taken in the morning and at bedtime. Applied this way, it has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antifungal effects that help treat problems like bronchitis, UTI, flue, stomach ulcer and viral infections.
Moreover, it helps enhance cellular respiration, regulate blood pressure, neutralize toxins, reduce pain, enhance radiation tolerance, boost the immune system, and prevent tumor formation.

The story of the acacia tree and acacia honey
Acacia tree (Black Locust) is native to North America. It was introduced in Hungary by Samuel Tessedik in the 18th century for reducing soil erosion. Today, no other country in Europe boasts with as many acacia woodlands as Hungary does. In its native region, North America, acacia trees grow in relatively smaller and fewer groups than in Europe. In Hungary, in the Nyirség, Bakony and Mezőföld regions acacia trees form vast forests. Beekeepers can utilize these forests for quality acacia honey production. Acacia honey was declared a hungarikum (distinctive Hungarian honey type) in 2014 which is in high demand on the international market.
Properties of acacia honey
Acacia honey is derived from the nectar of black locust flowers. This honey is characterized by has very light colour ranging from almost transparent to light yellowish, greenish. It has a very delicate, sweet aroma, much like the flowers do it is derived from that makes the honey easily identifiable. Acacia honey has a high level of fructose and the absence of a strong flavor that makes it a good natural sweetener for cakes and cookies, tea, coffee, juices, etc. It is sweeter than most other honeys and sweetens foods without modifying their natural flavor. It is an excellent alternative to sugar. And a nutritious and healthy food supplement for children. It can be consumed raw, as a spread, mixed with drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic.
Compered to other types of honeys, acacia honey has a low pollen content that greatly reduces the risk of sensitization. Therefore, it is a good choice for children and people prone to allergies.
Thanks to its high fructose but low glucose content, raw acacia honey crystalizes slower than most other honeys and stays liquid, almost transparent, for 1 to 2 years. This longer shelf life makes it a good choice for retail.
Acacia honey benefits
It has a high content of fructose which is the main source of carbohydrates in the honey and is a monosaccharide. Additionally, it contains robinin, akacint and essential oils.
Acacia honey is a natural antiseptic and is good for treating bronchitis, sore throat and symptoms of cold. It has cough suppressant properties, and it disinfects the mouth, pharynx and throat.
Acacia honey has a low acidity level which makes it a good choice for treating symptoms of hyperacidity e.g., heartburn. However, the more alkalescent Canola honey is even better for treating chronic stomach problems. The kalium and sulphur present in acacia honey help improve liver functions and detoxication.
The high calcium content of acacia honey helps maintain healthy bone density and improves muscle power. The iron in acacia honey makes it good for treating anemia.
Daily consumption of acacia honey is recommended for maintaining a strong immune system as it is a good source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, G and H.
Linden Honey and Everything You Need to Know About It
Linden honey is one of the most well-known honey types in Hungary. It is popular not only for having a pleasant taste but for its health benefits too. What do you need to know about this type of honey? What are the properties and health benefits of it? You can learn all you need to know about linden honey from this article.
The story of the linden tree and linden honey
Linden honey is one of the oldest types of honey. Humanity has been enjoying its splendid taste and health benefits for thousands of years. Linden trees provide one of the highest levels of pollen and nectar that bees need for their existence, for making honey. Therefore, it is often called the queen of honey plants. There are three types of Linden trees found in Hungary: large-leaved linden, small-leaved linden, and silver linden. They populate areas in the North Hungarian Mountains, the region south of Lake Balaton and Nyirség county.
Small-leaved linden trees produce the most nectar among the different linden tree species. Therefore, beekeepers can get the highest yield of linden honey form bees foraging on small-leaved lindens.
Properties of linden honey
The colour of linden honey greatly varies, depending on the time bees made it, from light yellow to dark orange, ruby. It has a savoury and distinct aroma, and a piquant, slightly tart taste. Due to its stronger taste, it is often mixed with other, less flavourful, honeys to enhance flavour. It can be used as a natural flavour enhancer for food and drinks also. However, it is recommended not to use linden honey for cooking and baking since high temperatures can bring out its tart taste.
Honey with high glucose content, like canola honey, crystallizes fast. Conversely, honey with high fructose content, like acacia honey, stays liquid for a longer time.
Linden honey is in between canola and acacia honey with regard to the length of time it stays liquid. Linden honey crystalizes between two to four months, but it doesn’t affect its nutritional value. However, if someone is bothered by the crystalized condition of the honey, placing the bottle containing the honey into a 35 – 40 Celsius water will make the honey liquid again. It is not recommended to place the bottle in water warmer than 40 Celsius because the warm temperature can lower nutritional value and the honey can lose some of its health benefits.
Linden honey benefits
Linden honey has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It has very strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that make it an excellent food supplement during times of cold, coughing, sore throat and bronchitis. It also helps with anxiety, stress and insomnia. Moreover, it can reduce fever and relieve stomach cramping, especially when mixed with linden tea that enhances its health benefits.
Linden honey contains farnesol, essential oils and choline. Choline helps prevent arteriosclerosis by slowing down deposition of fat in arteries.
Recommended consumption of linden honey
The recommended daily intake of linden honey is 4 or 5 teaspoons. It can be consumed raw or mixed with tea. Daily consumption of linden honey is highly recommended for children and seniors. For treating insomnia, it is best to take 1 or 2 teaspoons before bedtime.
Sunflower Honey and Everything You Need to Know About It
One of the highest volumes of honey sold worldwide every year is sunflower honey. Despite being one of the most consumed honeys, many people still underestimate the true value of it. What do you need to know about sunflower honey? What are the properties and health benefits of it? Keep reading, and you will learn everything you need to know about sunflower honey from this article.
The story of the sunflower and sunflower honey
Sunflower honey is made from the nectar of oilseed sunflowers. Sunflower can be grown in all regions of Hungary, and it is the main oilseed crop grown in the country. The blooming season of sunflowers in Hungary is July and August. Most bees forage on this crop at that time. Since sunflower honey is produced in a high volume, it is considered common and therefore often undervalued.
Properties of sunflower honey
The colour of the honey changes with age. It is first golden yellow then slowly darkens. It depends on the flavonoid content of the honey.
Sunflower honey has a sweet but mild aroma. It is first liquid and with time it becomes gradually creamier. It has a tart-sour taste. Its flavour is determined by the mix and ratio of aroma compounds in the honey.
Sunflower honey is acidic which brings out the flavour in food. It is great for marinating meat and as a component of salad dressings. It is the most used honey for baking. The distinct flavour of the honey coupled with its strong golden yellow colour make it a popular choice for baking. It is especially good for making gingerbread. Food manufacturing companies mostly use sunflower honey too. It is also a good choice for flavouring dairy products like yoghurts, cottage cheeses, cheeses, creams or mascarpone.
Due to its high content of pollen and glucose, sunflower honey can crystalize within two weeks. Large crystals form in the honey that settle on the bottom. Since sunflower honey has a relatively high water content, there remains a liquid above the crystalized part. Perhaps, this is the reason most people disfavour sunflower honey.
Benefits of sunflower honey
It has numerous health benefits. Major active substances in sunflower honey are organic acids, aldehydes and ketones.
The large crystals formed in the honey with the passing of time act as mechanical cleaners for the throat. When swallowed, they clear away bacteria. Therefore, consumption of crystalized sunflower honey helps with a sore throat. No other crystalized honey is as good a mechanical cleaner for the throat as sunflower honey.
Daily intake of sunflower honey, just like regular consumption of sunflower seeds, helps men suffering from prostate and urinary problems. It contains a high level of vitamin E which is a natural antioxidant. Due to being made from the nectar of oilseed crops and containing ketones, sunflower honey lowers cholesterol and helps prevent atherosclerosis. Also, it is high in minerals that boost the immune system. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of sunflower honey promote the well-being of people who regularly consume it. It also helps with stress and prevents formation of certain tumors.
Crystalized sunflower honey contains both solid and liquid parts. This makes it ideal for making creamed honey. Just mix the crystalized and liquid parts together and you have creamed honey. With added propolis, it is an excellent immune system booster.
It is important to note that sunflower honey is acidic and therefore it is recommended not to be consumed by people suffering from overproduction of stomach acid.
Rapeseed Honey and Everything You Need to Know About It
Rapeseed honey is among the best honeys. Even so, it is not well known. What do you need to know about this type of honey? What are the properties and health benefits of it? Keep reading, and you will learn everything you need to know about rapeseed honey from this article.
The rapeseed plant and rapeseed honey
Rapeseed plants are grown across Hungary and rapeseed fields serve as pastures for bees. However, not many beekeepers choose for bees to forage in rapeseed and only 32% of honey produced annual in the country is rapeseed honey. Most of the rapeseed honey is produced in the southern and western counties of the Transdanubia region. In this region, around 70% of beekeepers choose this crop as forage for their bees. Rapeseed plants provide an abundant supply of pollen with an ideal mix of amino acids, protein and fats for bees. The high nutritional value of this ample supply can make bees overly active and sometimes aggressive that can present a challenge to beekeepers. The relatively rapid crystallization of rapeseed honey is a challenge to beekeepers.
Properties of rapeseed honey
In liquid form it has a bright yellowish colour. In solid form it has a creamy white colour. It has a mild aroma. Its taste is delicate and sweet that makes this honey a favourite of children. It is a great choice for baking and adding flavour to coffee and tea.
Due to the high level of glucose in rapeseed honey, crystallization can occur in only a few days time. Crystals formed in rapeseed honey are relatively small that makes it perfect for making creamed honey that is easy to spread.
Benefits of rapeseed honey
Rapeseed honey has numerous health benefits. One of them being that this kind of honey is much less acidic than other honeys. Therefore, it helps treat acid reflux and is a good food choice on alkaline cures and candida diets. The high iron content in rapeseed honey promotes increased red blood cell production that can help people suffering from anemia.
Rapeseed honey has outstanding antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can help the body recover from illnesses and injuries and boosts the immune system.
Rapeseed honey is an energy-boosting food that fuels the body thanks to its high glucose content. Daily consumption of it is recommended for athletes and people doing hard physical labour. People suffering from osteoporosis can also benefit from consuming the honey daily. It has a high content of Q3 enzyme that is a key component for healthy bone formation.
Daily intake of rapeseed honey helps with maintaining a good blood vessel elasticity and healthy cholesterol levels. It also helps with preventing and treating liver problems.
