Raw Natural Acacia Honey (250g)
A clean, delicate and not overly sweet taste with hints of vanilla and distinct floral overtones.
This raw, cold-processed 100% natural honey has its origin in the flowers of Romanian Robiniapseudoacacia (also called 'black locust') acacia trees. It offers an unprecedentedly clean, delicate and not overly sweet taste with hints of vanilla and distinct floral overtones.
Often called 'water honey' or 'moonflower honey' because of its incredibly pale colour, acacia honey owes its distinctive appearance to its low natural acidity, our unique cold filtration process, and the remote, pristine, all but uninhabited hillsides where these groves (and the bees who tend them) thrive. However, it's most important properties are those that cannot be seen - or even tasted - directly.
Acacia honey is one of the least allergenic of all honeys because of its naturally low pollen content. Like all honey, it has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, and has been used in healing for generations. It is also a powerful antioxidant, and a vital (not to mention delicious) part of any diet that focuses on these foods. Acacia Honey health benefits are as follows
- Contains several antiseptic properties as it has a low pH value of 3.5
- Lots of anti-allergenic properties
- High Energizing properties due to the simple carbohydrate structure of the honey.
- Good for hypoglycaemia
- Brilliant substitute as a sweetener in your tea or coffee
- Can be used as a key ingredient when making a homemade face mask.
The fact that this acacia honey is raw, cold filtered and processed entirely naturally means that it retains all of its original goodness, in ways that supermarket honey - even store bought acacia honey - simply cannot. It is very high in polyphenols such as Gallic acid and various flavonoids, and forms a part of many natural remedies for just this reason.
Acacia honey has one more unique property - it resists crystallising longer than any other honey without any processing. We all know the frustration of seeing a lovely jar of honey turn all but solid before we have time to use it. Because acacia honey has a high fructose/glucose ratio, it lasts much longer on the shelf, even after being opened.
Natures Blend’s Top Tip: When making a homemade face mask use a Acacia Honey by mixing it in with your other ingredients. It will give your skin a clean and soft look and feel.
