MedSNAIL in Spain showcases a typical type of honey from Andalusia: the Meloja of Benahadux
The “meloja” is one of the flagship products selected by the Andalusian Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FAMP) from the Andarax Valley (Almería), MedSNAIL pilot area in Andalusia. This product is being promoted within the framework of the project through its inclusion in the Slow Food’s Ark of Taste.
Meloja is made from the honey produced in the Andarax Valley, using the honey that remains on the walls of the comb and is not initially removed. The honey is produced from wild Mediterranean plants, the most typical and abundant of which are multi-flower, rosemary, thyme, etc. Pumpkin of the 'marranera' variety is also added, a product similar to that used to make ‘cabello de ángel’.
