Sunflower honey is used as a sweetener due to its light and delicate taste as well as its high concentration of glucose. It has a bright yellow colour, a herbaceous flavour or fruity note of ripe apricots and an aftertaste of star anise. It is important to remember that pure sunflower honey must be crystallised, because if it is liquid it has undergone thermal treatments, which have eliminated its natural properties.
