Specific characteristic: very high thixotropy – meaning it turns into gel, when at rest.
Heather honey has an unusual texture, due to its thixotropic characteristic, being a jelly until stirred, when it becomes a syrup like other honey, and turning again to a jelly.
The viscosity of heather honey is so high that makes the extraction of the honey from the comb very difficult. That’s why, this honey is extracted by pressure (instead of centrifugation), which destroys the combs.
Thixotropy is explained by the presence of colloidal proteins. It contains high amount of moisture that is about 25% which is quite higher than other honey varieties. Despite of presence of hig water content it resists fermentation as the gel like consistency traps water.
