Forest honeyis darker in colour than other common types of honey.
It is exceptionally high in mineral and nutrient content: just one teaspoon can equal 2-4 teaspoons of other types of honey.
In addition to its nutritional value, the higher price is caused by its scarcity and the fact that the amount of honeydew is dependent on climatic conditions.
Honeydew, which is the nectar-like substance bees collect to make this honey, is actually produced by insects, and more precisely, scale insects and aphids which feed on tree sap, their excretions being the nectar which is collected from the leaves by bees. Because the nectar is not gathered directly from plant sources in this case, the resulting honey does not contain pollen and so can be consumed by those with pollen allergies.
It comes mostly from the leafy and mixed mountain forests from the areas of Donovaly and Spiš.
