The main feature of this type of honey lies in the high content of fructose, which is the basis of the low tendency to crystallize and the high sweetening power. It is considered a valuable aid against stomach acid, detoxifying liver, laxative, anti-inflammatory for the throat and for the wellbeing of the digestive tract, as well as being a natural remedy that can also be used by lightweight diabetics as its sugar content is largely due to fructose and therefore does not require insulin for its metabolization. The more honey is clear and neutral, the purer the monoflora is.
