Honey is a natural sweetener that has been used for thousands of years in China. Among the many varieties of honey, acacia honey is one of the most popular and prized ones. It is also known as one of the four famous honeys in China, along with jujube honey, linden honey and vitex honey.
Acacia honey is made from the nectar of acacia flowers, Acacia honey is mainly produced in northern China, especially in the provinces of Hebei, Shanxi, Shandong, Henan, and Shaanxi. The flowering season of the black locust tree is from late April to early June, depending on the weather and location. During this period, beekeepers place their hives near the acacia forests and collect the honey after the bees have filled the combs with nectar. The honey is then extracted, filtered, and packaged with minimal processing to preserve its natural qualities. Acacia honey has a light golden color and a clear and transparent appearance. It has a mild and delicate flavor, with a hint of floral and vanilla notes. It is also very low in acidity and high in fructose, which makes it less likely to crystallize.
