The Sweet Secret of Honey
Honey has been used by mankind for millennia – a naturally sweet, viscous liquid made from the nectar of flowers and collected by honey bees. Did you know that honeybees pollinate an estimated one-third of all the food crops we consume? Contrary to popular belief, not all honey is created in the same way. We are surrounded by varying flavours of the same substance! Similar to wine, the flavour of honey depends on what flowers the honeybees have visited.
They store it in what's called their “honey stomach”, which is unlike their food stomach. When they have a full load, they fly back to the hive. From here, they pass it on through their mouths to other worker bees who chew it for about half an hour. The journey of honey goes on as it’s passed from bee to bee, until it gradually turns into delicious honey.
Honey Heaven's Creamed honey is crystallized honey that's spun until it's creamy, smooth, spreadable, and absolutely delicious. From a nutritional point of view creamed honey indicates a healthier product. This is especially true if flavored with herbs or spices.
