High content in diastase
Mountains honey is our main product and it comes from a pollen spectrum to provide the typical species in mountain forests that inhabit our bees such as oak and chestnut, heather, bramble and thyme. This mountain honey is particularly rich in minerals and diastase that makes it a very nutritious honey providing energy and helping with proper digestion.
This mountain honey is a delicious food for local grizzly bears inhabiting the forests of eastern Galicia. Therefore, historically the hives were kept within walled settlements called "albarizas" that prevented bear´s access to the honeycombs. In Toca-Honey we have recovered the tradition of placing the hives into the "albarizas" which allows us to cohabit with the grizzly bear in the mountain and respect the rich biodiversity of the area.
