Honey has been used as a sweetener for centuries, but not all honeys are created equal! Bee pollen, one of nature’s most nutrient rich foods, is removed from commercial honey through ultrafiltration processes. Organic honey, however, retains the pollen which is packed with protein and amino acids, making it both delicious and filled with goodness.
Our Greek Raw Organic Forest & Thyme Honey is a rich, aromatic treat with a host of health benefits. Bee nectar offers a low glycemic index (GI), which is essential for good health and nutrition, and is a superior alternative for refined sugar due to its glucose and fructose content.
Rich in B vitamins, vitamin C and mineral salts, organic honey has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which have proven effective in healing wounds. It is also an ergogenic aid that can boost athletic performance and help with muscle recuperation, as well as facilitate fat burning when taken with warm water.
Including organic honey in our daily diet provides us with a variety of benefits including weight control, allergies, improved immunity against conditions such as cancer and heart disease and healthier skin when combined with milk. It is much more digestible than sugar, which promotes the healthy regulation of insulin and as a result is an ideal substitute for sugary sweeteners.
All of these great qualities are lost with the removal of bee pollen, which is the case for regular honey sold commercially. Greek Raw Organic Forest & Thyme Honey originates directly from the Greek plains and mountains and retains all of these nutritional benefits. With the beautiful infusion of thyme we have created this tasty, nutrient-packed delicacy that you can enjoy every day.
Crystallization and quality: Crystallization is a natural phenomenon not related to the quality of the honey and does not cause any changes in its' nutritional value. A crystallized honey is neither adulterated nor damaged. It can be liquidated easily if you place the jar in a bain -mari with hot water 40 ° Celsius for a few mins.
