"Giving this product a 5 star is undervaluing it, it deserves more. Quality and taste of honey is exactly same as described in description. It's worth a try.?

Popular Questions

Single flora honey is honey that retains its unique and natural flavors, directly influenced by nectar gathered by bees from flowers they visit, the climatic season and locations of their hives. With the most diverse assortment of single flora honey in the marketplace, we work with beekeepers to ensure our honey truly tastes like its floral origin. Each of our honeys is clearly labeled with its floral source and packaged in simple, jars so that nothing shadows their rich, natural color and taste.

We do not add anything to the honey, keeping it 100% all-natural. The hint of litchi comes from the nectar of the litchi flowers that the bees feed off to make the honey. When bees are put in a litchi orchard, they will feed only on the nectar of the litchi flower which will give the honey its unique taste.

Organic honey is produced from the pollen of organically grown plants, and without chemical miticides to treat the bees. Buying organic honey ensures that you avoid contact with pesticides that may be sprayed on or near the plants visited by honeybees.

This question is better addressed by a doctor. While honey is better than sugar, we are not medical practitioners and therefore cannot advise it as suitable for diabetics. Please consult your doctor for the above.

Crystallization of honey - is a natural process of 100% pure honey. Honey is a supersaturated solution made up of two natural sugars: glucose and fructose.

The proportions of these two sugars are characteristic of the plants the bees fed on to make their honey. It's the glucose that crystallizes, so some types of honeys are more resistant to crystallization because they have low glucose: https://www.wired.com/2014/03/crystalized-honey/

The truth is crystallization of honey is a natural and uncontrolled process. ... During crystallization, glucose sugar which is naturally pure white, separates from water and becomes crystals, while fructose remains as a liquid.

Please check the internet as well for research and discussions on the same: http://www.benefits-of-honey.com/crystallization-of-honey.html, http://scienceline.org/2007/04/ask-westly-crystallizedhoney/.

It's the over processed, commercial blended honeys that do NOT crystallize.

Crystallised honey has been tampered with (by adding sugar or jaggery)
Honey crystallises in cold weather due to its glucose content. Simply placing the jar in warm water brings it back to its liquid state. In fact, in certain parts of the world, crystallised honey is used like a jam.

Honey is naturally golden in colour
The colour of honey varies widely and depends on the flowers the bees feed on. Honey can be blonde, burgundy, dark brown and even golden.

Runny honey is diluted
The texture of honey depends on the moisture levels in the natural environment. In the Western Ghats where there is extensive rainfall, honey has a higher content of moisture.

Bitter/sour honey has gone bad
Bees collect nectar from different flowers. The floral source determines the flavour – sweet, bitter or sour. Far from going bad, bitter honey is prized for its nutritional value

Honey has a consistent taste
The taste of honey depends on the season of its collection, the type of bee that collects it, and the floral source. In fact, not only do varieties of honey taste different, different batches of the same variety also do.

A layer of residue on top of the honey shows honey has gone bad.
The residue formation on top of the honey is nothing but pollen, naturally found in the honey. When honey is left untouched for a long period of time, the pollen forms a thin film on top. Simply stirring the honey will make the pollen dissolve. In fact, more and more people today consider bee pollen to be a superfood. In many countries, bee pollen is consumed as a distinct item.

Can diabetics have honey?
This question is better addressed by a doctor. While honey is better than sugar, we are not medical practitioners and therefore cannot advise it as suitable for diabetics. Please consult your doctor for the above.

Honey is a natural antimicrobial substance which means if the honey is pure then no harmful microbes can grow in the honey and it will stay safe to consume forever.

Why then do we have an expiry date on the jar? This is a question we get asked on a regular basis.

The answer is simple, we do not have an expiry date on the jar. What we have instead is a best before date which means the honey can be consumed even after this date. However, after the best before date, the honey will change it's properties in terms of colour, aroma, texture etc. This change of properties like darkening of colour or crystallisation does not make the honey unsafe in any way. It simply means that the honey is pure and like all pure honey it will darken or thicken over a period of time. In fact you should be worried if your honey stays the same without any colour or texture change for months, this simply means it is synthetic honey with heavy processing.

Also, the Indian and international food laws both make it mandatory to mention a best before date or expiry date on the label of all packed foods. So we really don’t have a choice but to mention the Best before date on our jars of honey.

Now, enjoy your jar of honey without worrying about it’s purity because when you buy from us, purity is something that’s guaranteed.
