There is no exact number for the type of honey, as follows:
1、 Classified by level:
1. First class honey: The honey source flowers include loquat, lychee, longan, linden, locust blossom, citrus, wolfberry thorn, and thorny honey.
2. Second class honey: The honey source flowers include jujube flowers, rapeseed, purple milkvetch, cotton, etc.
3. Third class honey: Honey source flowers include Chinese tallow, eucalyptus, etc.
2、 According to the honey bee species: Italian honeybees and Chinese honeybees are the main ones. The honey they collect is called Italian honey and medium honey (indigenous honey).
3、 According to the source: Bees collect nectar or nectar, so honey is divided into natural honey and nectar.
4、 According to the physical state, honey has two different physical states at room temperature and pressure, namely liquid and crystalline (regardless of whether the honey is stored in the nest cavity or separated from the nest chamber). Liquid honey refers to the liquid that separates honey from the honeycomb and remains transparent or semi transparent and viscous at all times. However, most varieties of honey gradually form a crystalline state after being stored for a period of time, especially when the temperature is low, which is called crystalline honey.
5、 According to the production method: According to the different production methods of honey, it can be divided into separated honey, nested honey, pressed honey, etc.
6、 According to the color difference between honey, honey can be divided into 7 levels: water white, extra white, white, extra light amber, light amber, amber, and deep amber. The basis for distinguishing colors is the Poincare colorimeter.
7、 According to nectar source plants, they are divided into single flower nectar and mixed flower nectar (hundred flower nectar). Such as linden tree honey, sunflower honey, locust honey, thorn honey, wolf tooth honey, jujube tree honey, rapeseed honey, etc. In addition, when multiple honey source plants bloom at the same time, bees collect and brew honey, which becomes a variety of nectar or miscellaneous nectar. From a nutritional perspective, mixed nectar is superior to single flower seed nectar.
