To keep honey

Honey is a product of the sun which does not like the cold inside a refrigerator.
Honey is best kept in a dark place where it is not too warm (+/- 18°C).
Also make sure that the jar or bottle is kept well closed as honey easily attracts odours and strong flavours of vegetables and fruit.


As honey contains glucose, diabetics should consult their dietician on the use of honey.
Meli has developed a special syrup with a honey flavour.
This syrup is specially made with diabetic-friendly sugars, namely fructose, sorbitol and natural honey flavour. It does not cause any sudden peaks in the sugar level and is therefore recommended for diabetics who have a sweet tooth.


Honey is a 100% natural product with nothing added or taken away, as is prescribed by law. Like other natural products, honey may nevertheless contain residues, minuscule traces of foreign substances.
