Beech Honeydew is made by the bees foraging in native Beech forest. They collect the nectar produced by a small insect that feeds on the South Island’s native Black Beech tree. It differs from floral honey, which is made solely from nectar collected from flowers. Beech Honeydew has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties plus high levels of antioxidants. Due to the high levels of oligosaccharides which are helpful for promoting probiotic gut bacteria, it is believed to be especially helpful for digestive health.
TASTE: Sweet dark caramel, with a unique flavour reminiscent of golden syrup. Beech Honeydew is dark amber in colour with a silky-smooth texture.
USE: Added to cereal or yoghurt, or mixed into hot drinks or smoothies. Delicious drizzled on toast, or use as a healthy alternative to sugar.
