A true natural wonder:
genuine, pure, unadulterated honey

Fragrance and flavour elements, vitamins, trace elements, enzymes, minerals, acids, essential oils and up to 22 different sugars including fructose and glucose, as well as antibiotic agents and proteins: honey contains all of these, making it a true natural wonder. The fact that it not only tastes good but also offers numerous advantages when it comes to Lebkuchen baking makes us especially happy. It is a preservative, makes the dough moist and soft, and is a natural colouring. The 50% honey content in our Lebkuchen dough means we can completely avoid the use of artificial preservatives, other chemical additives and stabilisers.


The spice mix is the key

Fine spices from all over the world are responsible for the exquisite flavour of Pirker Lebkuchen. It goes without saying that we only use genuine spices and no extracts or flavourings – providing a wonderful taste as well as offering health benefits. Cinnamon, for instance, contains extraordinary amounts of the minerals potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, zinc and magnesium, as well as vitamin A. Ginger, meanwhile, contains more than 160 substances. You can find out more about the healing properties of our spices in an overview here.
