Honeydew is a classification of honey that refers to honey produced by honeybees collecting nectar that is exuded from another insect such as an aphid or scale insect.

New Zealand Beech Honeydew honey is one of New Zealand’s premium export honey.

Typically honeydews have lower levels of glucose and fructose and higher levels of complex sugars due to the extra enzymatic actions in the sap-sucking insects gut.

Honeydews don’t normally crystallize due to the reduced levels of glucose and also have a high mineral content which is measured as a high conductivity – this measurement being the main tool to differentiate honeydews in the laboratory.
