A rulebook to all things honey.
Myths! They say they exist. But no one really talks about them. From our years of experience with honey and honey-based products, here’s everything that we’ve found.
Follow the bee trail to learn it for yourself.
The pure honey bottle is best kept at room temperature. It should not be exposed to direct sunlight and kept in a cool and dry place. Ants love it ..so protect your honey from Ants!!
The crystallization of honey is little understood. Many assume that crystallized honey is adulterated or ‘spoiled’.
The crystallization process is natural & spontaneous. Pure, raw & unheated honey has a natural tendency to crystallize over time with no effect on the honey other than color & texture.
The crystallization of honey actually preserves the flavor and quality characteristics of your honey. Many honey users prefer it in this state as it is easier to spread on bread or toast
The viscosity of the honey is dependent on the weather conditions, the floral & the humidity of the region from were the Honey comes from. Tropical honey could be runnier, however, that doesn't make it diluted.
What you're looking at is 'honey foam,' which is a result of the tiny air bubbles in the honey escaping to the top. This actually is a sign that the honey has been packed without any heating and thus pure and raw.
Honey in India is traditionally harvested from mid-February till the start of the rainy season. During rainy season bees go into hibernation and good beekeepers allow the bees to hibernate.
Organic honey for us is nectar sourced from organically grown flowers. The honey bee in one foraging trip covers a radius of 5 Kms. Organic Flora cultivation in such a large land area is very difficult, hence organic certification as well. In Agmark tests for the same ingredients and then grade them. DYU Honey is Agmark A grade.
Monofloral honey are honey where the bees have mostly foraged on a single flower. In terms pollen ratio, any single floral pollen ratio if it more than 50% the honey can be classified as monofloral. In case of Manuka its honey from the manuka flower in New Zealand, however that doesnt make it the best as there are many such regional monofloral honey's across the world.
