Organic Honey from Crete from Tragano Greek Organics
$22.00 - $75.00
Organic Honey from Crete is part of the Tragano Greek Organics collection of gourmet Greek food. The raw honey is drawn from the island's wild thyme, sage, mountain tea and Cretan ebony. Our organic honey is traditionally extracted to ensure that it remains high in antioxidants, trace minerals & phenols. Importantly, there are no preservatives, additives, artificial flavors nor colorants. With a full body, light color and high nutritional value, this Cretan organic honey is a true wellness gift and an integral part of the healthy Mediterranean Diet.
Unlike other companies that mass-produce honey from hives across different estates, Tragano Greek Organics chooses their honey solely from the apiary estate of Manolis Stefanakis, who combines his scientific knowledge with three generations of bee-keeping traditions near Heraklion, Crete. Enjoy this natural sweetener with its lower-glycemic index and lower caloric count than sugar as an ideal sugar substitute and pre- and post-workout snack.
HOW TO USE IT
We love this low-glycemic index honey the Greek way, atop thick Greek yogurt with walnuts for breakfast or snack. Try it on your toast, waffles, pancakes and crepes, and as a healthier sweetener in your coffee or tea. Mix it with extra virgin olive oil and freshly-squeezed lemon for a delicious salad dressing. Drizzle it on hard sharp cheeses. Head to our blog for dessert recipes, including melomakárona, the classic Greek Christmas cookies.
