Organoleptic characteristics – non-crystallizing (because of the high fructose content), light colour and specific thin aroma. Pollen characteristics – low total quantity of pollen beads (9200 beads on average per 10 grams, minimum 1000 and maximum 19000). The percentage content of acacia pollen out of the total pollen quantity is also relatively low (28,1 % on average, minimum 7,0 % and maximum 59,5 %).

Physical-chemical characteristics – low levels of colour, conductivity, acidity, content of enzymes, prolin and glucose, and low glucose/water proportion. The fructose/glucose proportion as well as the fructose and sucrose content are increased.??Physical-chemical characteristics of the Bulgarian acacia honey?Colour – 12.7 mm, Water – 17.9%, рН – 4.51, Total acidity – 14.3 mekv/kg, Diastase – 10.3 d.ch., Fructose/ glucose – 1.61, Sucrose – 7.09%, Pollen – 28%

ORGANOLEPTIC INDICATORS
Colour – light yellow
Аroma – insufficiently marked

Taste – sweet with light sour taste;
Consistence – thick half-crystallized or crystallized liquid;

Healing application–the anti-microbe effect of the lime-tree honey is strongly expressed towards the gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, and the anti-protozoan effect- towards the infusoria, amoeba and tichomonadas. It has well expressed anti-micotic characteristics as well as expectorating, broncholitic, anti-inflammatory, cardio tonic and loosening effect.

The manna is produced by a large number of sucking insects on a variety of coniferous and deciduous trees.

Organoleptic characteristics – dark to very dark intensive colour with a greenish shade, specific aroma, average sweetness, high acidity, slow crystallization, thick consistence due to the low water content.

Microscope characteristics – the manna honey is characterised by the presence of so called manna elements (hifes, spores, water plants, fungi) and pollen from non-honey-producing plants. The proportion manna elements/pollen beads is 1,5 on average with boundary values of 0,30 and 0,40, and the total quantity of plant elements is 151,80 on average with boundary values of 35,30 and 373,00.

Physical-chemical characteristics – the manna honey is distinguished by its high levels of colour, conductivity and acidity, positive optic activity and low levels of fructose, glucose, total quantity of glucose and fructose, and glucose/water proportion.

Physical-chemical characteristics of the Bulgarian manna honey
Colour – 86mm, Water – 16.1%, рН – 5.1, Total acidity – 28.4 mekv/kg, Diastase – 22.6 d.ch., Fructose/ glucose – 1.25, Sucrose – 0.8%, Conductivity – 1.20 mS/sm

Organoleptic Indicators
Colour – from light yellow to dark brown;
Аroma – typical;
Taste – sweet with sometimes light sour or bitter taste;
Consistence – thick half-crystallized or crystallized liquid;

Healing application – Due to the high content of microelements the manna honey is suitable for people with anemia. It is also used for healing of the upper breathing channels-coughing, bronchitis. The manna honey is a terrific anti- anemia cure, it strengthens the heart muscle and the immune system, and protects from haemorrhages in the brain and in the eye retina.
