Did you know that the taste, flavour and texture of the Honey varies depending on the flowers, season and region from which the Bees collect nectar?
How then is the Honey you normally buy from the super market tastes, smells and feels the same throughout the year?
Well the Honey you buy from big brands are highly processed and ultra filtered to standardise it's taste, texture and flavour. Unfortunately this processing destroys all the beneficial properties of the Honey and makes it a mere sugar syrup because if you heat Honey to more than 45 degrees celsius all the beneficial enzymes in the Honey gets destroyed. Also the ultra filtration removes all the pollen in the Honey which is what gives each bottle of Honey it's unique taste and flavour.
Real raw Honey is extracted from the BeeHives and then packed in bottles without any processing. It has all the beneficial enzymes and pollen intact. Switch to real raw Honey today to experience the real benefits of consuming Honey.
Here's a video explaining how the Indian Honey industry functions:
Honey and Spice gives you the purest Honey fresh from the honeycomb. We don’t pasteurise, heat or process the honey. As a result, in the honey dwell all its beneficial antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients and enzymes.
Here's a video in collaboration with WWF India which showcases how our most popular Wild Honey is collected from the forests of central India:
We mainly have two types of Honey:
Wild Honey: We work with Tribal settlements in South & Central Indian forests where tribal Honey hunters collect the Wild Raw Honey from natural Bee Hives in cliffs and trees. This Honey is made by the Giant Rock Bees (Apis Dorsata) by collecting the nectar from wild flowers in the forests. The forest is rich in medicinal plants and this Honey in turn is highly medicinal and used extensively for Ayurvedic treatments.
Sweet Honey: This Honey is produced by the Indian Honey Bee (Apis Cerana Indica) which is smaller in size than the Rock Bee and is present mainly in the Southern and North eastern regions of India. This Honey will have a sweet taste with a touch of sourness. We again do not process or ultra filter this Honey which in turn preserves all the benefits of the Honey.
Naturally Spiced/flavoured Honey: We also infuse certain beneficial spices like Tulsi, Ginger, Cinnamon etc with pure raw Honey to enhance the taste and also to improve the health and medicinal benefits of our Honey. Tulsi Honey for example is good for any kind of Kapha related imbalances eg: sore throat, coughing, sinus problems etc. Ginger Honey helps in digestion and improves the overall functioning of the digestive system. Cinnamon Honey helps in relieving excess fats and fluids from the body and helps towards weight loss.
