Organic Honey and Health
Honey, which is produced by honeybees, is not only sweet and good tasting, but it’s good for you.Honey has been used for its medicinal and therapeutic value for centuries in India. Honey is known to promote good health and acts as a good cleansing tonic that revitalizes the entire body. We make every effort to ensure that the bee products reach you at their Organic best.
The honey is processed in such a way that all the natural properties are retained. Any such treatment is avoided which may denature the plant and bee enzymes, vitamins and all other crucial heat labile components of the honey.
Organic Honey is regulated by strict set of guidelines, which covers not only the origin of bees, but also the sitting of the apiaries. The standards indicate that the apiaries must be on land that is certified as organic and be such that within a radius of 4 miles from the apiary site, nectar and pollen sources consist essentially of organic crops or uncultivated areas.
The hills of Himachal are peculiar for its richness in floral biodiversity including a variety of medicinal and aromatic plants in addition to cultivated agricultural crops. Bees collect nectar from flowers of all these plants to prepare honey with added medicinal properties.
Further, this area is completely free from any kind of chemical pollution, as the agricultural practices are completely organic. Thus the honey produced is completely free from any kind of chemical contamination unlike other agriculturally developed areas where agro-chemicals are used in large quantities. This honey has already been certified as Organic by SGS (Societe Generale de Survillance) an International certifying agency for organic foods.
Himachal Products- Raw Organic Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered – merely screened.
Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be.Organic Honey is available in 30 Grams, 50 Grams, 100 Grams, 200 Grams, 500 Grams and 1000 Grams Packaging, Bulk packaging in 65 Kgs barrel
