As if to remember its origin under the beating sun of summer, sunflower honey is recognized above all by its beautiful bright yellow color. Sunflower honey does not have a particularly marked aroma and is recognized above all for a scent reminiscent of pollen and wax and for a moderately sweet flavor.

The sunflower pollen is covered with small drops of yellow oil, which is responsible for the brilliant color of honey. While the production of sunflower honey at a national level is important only in the regions of central Italy, abroad it is very widespread, particularly in Eastern European countries.

One of its most marked characteristics is the refreshing sensation it gives to the palate.

Flower (Latin): Helianthus annuus (Compositae)


Excellent as table honey, also widely used in confectionery and the food industry. It goes perfectly with cheeses such as taleggio, raschera and toma.
