About Sidr Plant
The Sidr tree is scientifically known as Ziziphus Spina-christ
sidr is one of the best nectar-producing plants in tropical regions of Iran. This evergreen tree produces very fragrant nectar, this unique aroma is quite noticeable in honey with a high predominance of the nectar of this plant.
There are about three species of Sidr in Iran, which can be referred to as Sidr, Indian Sidr, and Remlik.
There are more than 500,000 hectares of semi-dense to scattered sidr forests in Iran, which is the leading in the world.
The flowering of this plant is so special that it blooms in most months of the year. Generally, it starts flowering in spring, and with warming, the flowering decreases, and again, with the balancing of the weather in September, it starts flowering intermittently.
This special process in flowering gives the bee a good opportunity to collect nectar and produce sidr honey.
How to Make Persian Sidr Honey?
Honey produced from the Ziziphus Spina-christ plant is known as sidr honey and because car forests with a high distribution of this plant grow in the south of the country and there are no other nectar-producing plants in the rangeland during the flowering season, it is possible to harvest Sidr honey.
Sidr honey is produced mainly in Yemen, Pakistan, Ethiopia, India, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and of course Iran.
Features of Persian Sidr Honey
Persian Sidr honey is known as one of the highest quality honey in the world in terms of medicinal properties and biologically active substances and is known in world markets as Middle Eastern Manuka honey. Very good taste, good aroma, and late crystallization are the unique features of this honey.
Persian sidr honey has high levels of fructose, rich in minerals and essential amino acids, and low glycemic index. Active and medicinal substances are Ziziphus Spina-Christi tannin and plant sterols, such as beta-sitosterol, beta-sitosterol glucoside, as well as saponin Eblin lactone, which is its foaming agent. This saponin is a precursor to steroid hormones. One of the characteristics of Persian Sidr honey is foaming at the time of extractor, and the reason for this is the presence of the same saponin substance Ablin lactone, which disappears after a while and will be formed by stirring and heating this foam again.
A major part of the medicinal properties and nutritional value of Persian Sidr honey is due to the presence of glycosides and saponins. The medicinal properties of Persian sidr honey include increasing physical and sexual strength, the general strengthening of the body, anti-fever, anti-cancer, and stomach tonic, and it is one of the best honey in the world for diabetics.
