Polyfloral Honey

Reading Time: 12 minutes, 48 seconds Post Views: 1889

Beechwood Honey

It's popularly known as Honeydew honey and mainly produced in New Zealand's South Island. It has extraordinary aroma & comes from the sap produced by aphids on the bark of beechwood trees giving distinct stature in the honey index. Beechwood honey is fondly mixed into smoothies, sauces, pancakes, and fruits like a sweet drizzle. This honey is a good supplement for improving the body's immunity and digestive system.

Berry Honey

Berry Honey is a rich source of anthocyanin flavonoids having good anti-inflammatory properties. It's considered good for eyes and even helps in fighting against colon cancer.

Black Bee Honey 

This is absolute form of raw honey- unpasteurized & unblended. Majorly found in Exmoor National Park has a smoky aroma and becomes runny on heating 

Canola Honey (Brassica napus)

Canola is an ideal habitat and food source for honeybees: Canola flowers produce high amounts of nectar and this nectar has a good sugar profile for honey production. The large amounts of pollen offer a good nutritional balance of amino acids, protein and fats.

Canola honey is one of the most delicate in flavour, crystalize easily & have low acid levels. Being prepared from species of rapeseed, holding 80% of Canadian honey sales. 

Chunk Honey

Chunk honey is essentially a hybrid of liquid honey and comb honey, where a large piece of comb honey is added into refined liquid honey, Once in the honey, this piece of honeycomb can either be broken up by the consumer or eaten after the liquid honey is completed. Many compare this to the honey equivalent of crunchy peanut butter. Cut comb honey or chunk honey is liquid honey that has added chunks of the honeycomb in the jar. Also known as liquid-cut comb combination.

Golden Honey

Velvety-Smooth honey having a deep flavour with a blend of clover and wildflower honey varieties. It has a sweet taste entwined with delicate floral undertones.

Granulated Honey

Granulated honey is honey that has been turned into a powder by freezing or drying it to remove any water in the honey. Whipped honey is honey that has been finely crystallized to make it spreadable. It contains one-part granulated honey and nine parts liquid honey which has been firmed up by keeping it at a temperature of 57 degrees. Granulated honey is honey that has been dried and ground. The honey retains the same flavour but has a crunchy quality to it. Furthermore, it dissolves well in liquid but doesn't have the stickiness of fresh honey. Granulated honey is used for vinaigrettes, sauces, marinades, and brines.

Jamun Honey (Syzygium cumini)

Jamun Honey is sourced from bees that feed and forage primarily on Indian blackberry commonly known as JAMUN Jamun. It is collected from the south Karnataka region and is harvested in August when the Jamun flowers blossoms. It is dark amber in color and comparatively less sweet than other honey.

Jamun (Syzygium cumini) honey is famous for its antihypoxic activity. A specific dose of this honey can be topically applied to cure the deadly Fournier gangrene.

Since it has high osmotic pressure and viscosity, it prevents microbial growth and promotes wound healing when applied to the affected areas.

Jamun honey is renowned for anti-hypoxic activity. A specific dose of this honey can be topically applied to cure the deadly gangrene. Since it has high osmotic pressure and viscosity, it helps in microbial growth and promotes wound healing when applied to the affected areas.

Kashmir Honey

Gently nourishes skin with natural single flora of Kashmir Honey. It has all beneficial components which help in boosting immunity.

Chestnut Honey (Castanea sativa)

Of the common species of Chestnut trees, the Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa) grown mainly in Europe produces honey, and the Allegheny Chinkapin (C. pumila) grown in Eastern USA produces a strong and bitter honey.

The chestnut tree belongs to the same family as beeches and oaks. For thousands of years the chestnut was a primary source of nutrition in the mountainous areas of the Mediterranean where grains did not grow well. The primary honey producer, the sweet chestnut tree (Castanea sativa) is common in Europe where it was introduced from Sardis (in what is now Turkey) thousands of years ago, hence the name Sardinian Nut, now known simply as the chestnut...not to be confused with Sardinian honey, so called because it is produced on the Italian island of Sardinia.

It possesses a unique aroma and some of its varietals are reported to taste bitter. This amber-colour honey is mildly sweet and its low Glycemic Index makes it honey suitable for diabetics.

Maple Honey (Acer macrophyllum)

The western honey bee or European honey bee (Apis mellifera) is the most common of the 7-12 species of honey bees worldwide. The genus name Apis is Latin for "bee", and mellifera is the Latin for "honey-bearing", referring to the species' production of honey.

Has the aroma of maple trees in bloom, with a sweet almost medicinal scent to it. Maple Blossom Honey is only available during the earliest days of spring from the blossoms of big leaf maple trees.

Cotton Honey (Gossypium hirsutum)

Cotton honey first sounded like a joke to me. I mean, cotton is for clothes, for good quality clothes, breathable and soft.

The only image I had in mind of the plant named cotton, was from an old movie where black slaves were gathering white balls of fluffy cotton from a huge field. I remember the contrast between their black ebony hands and the white balls.

I never imagined honey can be produced from those plants, because in my mind there were no flowers attached. But then, I thought the same when I first heard of pine honey. Pines don’t have flowers and yet honey can be produced from them.

Made from the visiting the flavours of cotton plants, it doesn't taste light cotton, but rather has a complex flavour with both sweetness and tartness, unique and delicious.

Naturally Crystallized Honey

Naturally crystallized honey is honey in which part of the natural glucose content has spontaneously crystallized. Crystallized honey can sometimes be a little less convenient to use, as they are sometimes very compact and hard. But they needn’t be permanently like that, and simply by leaving them in a warm place for a day they’ll soften, becoming creamy, easier to spread and mix. They’ll be slightly less sweet to taste, and with a refreshing sensation, much like melted sugar. Of course, many consumers prefer liquid honey and the industry has invested a great deal of money into technologies to keep honey in its liquid state for as long as possible, in order to satisfy demand. Such technologies, however, are based on reheating (pasteurizing) and filtering, which tends to destroy the most interesting characteristics of the honey. The majority of liquid honeys on sale have undergone such processes, though this is almost never indicated on the label.

Neem Honey (Azadirachtaindica)

Neem honey is a popular Ayurvedic treatment and can be commonly found in India where Neem trees (Azadirachtaindica) are common. It is used to lower high blood pressure, diabetes, skin problems, allergies, dental illnesses, and throat infections. Highly valued in Ayurveda for its medicinal properties, Neem honey is as appreciated as Maharishi honey. It is known to be anti-inflammatory, anti-coughing and antiseptic. Folk medicine uses it in lowering high blood pressure and to treat diabetes (!), skin problems, dental diseases, infected throat, and allergies.

Medicinally valued Neem honey is a Bitter-tasting variant mainly produced in warm tropical countries like India. It’s an Ayurveda medicine for lowering high blood pressure, treating diabetes, skin problems, dental diseases, infected throat, and allergies.

Pine Tree Honey (çam balı)

Pine honey Turkish: çam balı is a type of honeydew honey. It is a sweet and spicy honey, with some woody notes, a resinous fragrance and dark amber color. It is a common breakfast dish in Turkey, where it is drizzled over yoghurt and eaten with bread.

Pine honey is an unusual honey because it is not produced entirely by honey bees . It is produced by bees that collect honeydew (sugary secretions) from a scale insect species called Marchalinahellenica, which lives on the sap of certain pine trees. The marchalinahellenica can be found on the Turkish Pine (Pinus brutia), as well as the Aleppo Pine (Pinus halepensis), Austrian Pine (Pinus nigra), Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) and Stone Pine (Pinus pinea).

Pine honey is produced in eastern Mediterranean Pinus brutia forests. Turkey produces 92% of the world’s pine honey. MuÄŸla Province accounts for 80% of Turkish pine honey production.

Pine Tree honey (also known as forest honey, fir honey, honeydew or tea tree honey) holds the majority of honey production in Greece. It is not particularly sweet and tastes a little bitter with a strong aroma. Relatively rich in minerals and proteins, this honey is resistant to crystallization.

Pumpkin Blossom Honey (Cucurbita)

Pumpkin honey is one of the rarest of honeys, so it is a special treat when available. It is an excellent honey for cooking, baking, canning, and wonderful for marinades, sauces, and dressings. Whip it into a tasty honey butter and you wont be disappointed. Pumpkin Honey is reminiscent of pumpkins and other squash, even having an orange cast to the color. It is wonderful for fall and winter cooking.

Pumpkin Blossom honey is dark amber-coloured having a light floral fragrance. It’s a suitable topping for dishes and desserts and tastes good when paired with savoury or spicy barbeque sauce. It also tastes great when drizzled with sweet potatoes, yoghurt, and desserts.

Rainforest Honey (Apis Dorsata)

The bees that produces this precious honey is called Apis dorsata or Giant Honey Bees, and they would only build hives on canopies of Koompassiaexcelsa, also known as Tualang tree - Hence the name Tualang honey.

Rata Honey (Metrosiderosrobusta)

It contains live enzymes, minerals and vitamins, making it a tasty super food, perfect for displays with cheeses but also healthy and nutritious as well. Our Rata honey is sourced from the protected Rata tree found in New Zealand's National Forests.

Rata is one of several species of Rata found in New Zealand but is the one that most regularly produces a honey crop, although even this honey is sometimes in very short supply. Anyone who has seen the Rata flowering in January in the Otira Gorge west of Christchurch cannot forget the sight of this brilliant red carpet covering the mountains. This area produces the purest Rata honey, very white in colour with a subtle, distinctive flavour, mild and rich - but not sweet, almost salty, considered by many to be the best of New Zealand Honeys.

Rata honey is a light colour & buttery smooth varietal that has impressed many serious honey enthusiasts. It has a mild, subtle taste and yet very memorable, pleasantly sweet aroma. Rata honey has a relatively high glucose content. It crystallizes quickly and thus is usually processed into a cream, honey. When mixed with water, it makes an absolutely delicious, soothing tonic with a fruity hint.

Tualang Honey (Apis Dorsata)

Eating it does not spike your blood sugar levels as much as other honey. It has half the GI of table sugar and even lower than white bread, making it the perfect, super healthy alternative for table sugar and can be easily incorporated into any diet or recipe. Tualang Honey contains the highest amount of antioxidants & anti-inflammatory agents in honey. It improves cardiovascular health, stimulates fast wound healing, reduces scarring and is extremely effective against persistent coughs & sore throats or other viral-borne diseases.

The tualang honey is a multifloral jungle honey, produced by an Asian type of bee called Apis dorsata, in nests hanging from the high branches of the tualang trees.

Wildflower Honey

Wildflower is often described as polyfloral honey from miscellaneous and undefined flower sources. Its colour varies from very light to dark and flavour range from light and fruity to tangy and rich, depending on the mix from the different seasonal wildflowers.

Whipped Honey

Whipped honey (also known as churned honey, honey fondant, sugared honey and spun honey) is a type of honey that has been processed to limit that honey crystallization occurs. It's whipped into a thick cream-like consistency that makes it easy to spreads and much light in texture. While all honey will crystallize in time, whipped honey intentionally crystallizes via a controlled process so that it can be spread like butter at room temperature. In many countries around the world, whipped honey is preferred to the liquid form and used instead of jelly or jam.
