Manna Flows from an Incision on the Ash Tree


A Unique and Inimitable Sap 

Manna is the solidified sugary sap that flows from incisions made on the trunk and main branches of several species of the genus Fraxinus L. in the summertime. Produced since the  second half of the 1500s  in various parts of Sicily, today manna is harvested only in the Madonie region.


Youthful Energy in Service of the Land

The consortium counts on a team of young professionals active in various strategic fields of our business operations. Moved by love for the Madonie area, we strive to create opportunities for development. Our goal is to share the virtues of manna with the world, along with the beauty of the places that allow us to continue production today. Four cooperatives of producers, La 50, Oasi, Nuova Alba e Il Girasole, take care of the ash groves and the manna harvest, respecting the rhythms of the seasons and the inspiring nature of the Madonie Park. 

Manna is Born from the Earth with the Help of the Sun

“It takes grace to make manna,” responded the prior. “It is the child of love.”

Giuseppina Torregrossa - Manna e miele, ferro e fuoco-

“Manna constitutes a pharmacologically important substance because it is used to treat various disorders. It is principally used to combat problems of constipation and as a purgative without side effects, for children as well as adults.”

“Besides its pharmaceutical use as mild osmotic laxative and as a diuretic, this exudate is nowadays employed as a sweetening ingredient in a range of local foods, including functional foods designed for hyperglycemic people. It is also used in toiletries, including soaps and creams, for its emollient properties.”
