Wild Flower Honey from the Midlands

One unique benefit of wildflower honey is that it can offer some relief to allergy sufferers. Seasonal allergies are most frequently triggered by pollen from wildflowers. Consuming a small amount of local wildflower honey is said to alleviate symptoms in people suffering from seasonal allergies, such as hay fever.

Choose a raw, natural product to get the most health benefits from wildflower honey. Raw honey hasn't been heat-treated, so it retains more beneficial properties.

The UK's wildflowers are more than just a pretty sight. They're a vital part of the ecosystem, supporting a variety of wildlife, including bees. And thanks to the hard work of these bees, we get to enjoy the unique taste and potential health benefits of wildflower honey. So the next time you see a field of wildflowers, take a moment to appreciate their beauty and the sweet gift they help produce.Wild Flower Honey

Soft Set Honey from the Midlands

Soft-set wildflower honey can be a versatile option for those who prefer the texture of soft-set honey but also want to experience the complexity of flavours that come from a variety of flowering plants in the region.

What is Soft Set Honey?

Soft set honey, also known as creamed honey or whipped honey, is a type of honey that has been intentionally processed to have a smooth, creamy, and spreadable texture. It's achieved by controlling the crystallization process of honey. In the production of soft set honey, a small amount of already crystallized honey (seed honey) is mixed into liquid honey. This encourages the liquid honey to crystallize around the seed honey's crystals, resulting in a fine, smooth texture. The end product is thick and creamy, making it easier to spread on bread, toast, or other foods.

Single Jar £11.99

Acacia Honey from Transylvania

Acacia is one of the few honeys that takes more than a year to crystallize as the nectar of the acacia flower is jam-packed with natural fructose. Perfect for adding light, floral sweetness to teas, sumptuously spread over bread or generously poured into porridge.

Honey Bee & co Acacia Honey Lot 1

Acidity: 0,91 ml NaOH 1 n/100g

Superior Quality Acacia Honey should have: Acidity: max. 4 ml NaOH 1n/100g 

UK Law -Free acid - all honey except for baker’s honey, not more than 50 milli-equivalents acid/kg 

The low pH of honey inhibits the presence and growth of microorganisms. Its low pH makes honey compatible with many food products in terms of pH and acidity. Acids are an important component of the flavour and aroma of monofloral honey.

Diastase = 13.9%

The honey-own enzyme "Diastase" (scientifically it concerns an α-Amylase) is a marker for the authenticity of honey and represents an important quality parameter.

Accordingly, the diastase number (DN) is legally regulated according to the Schade scale (EU regulation 2001/110/EG, Codex Alimentarius).

For honey with exception of baker’s honey / industrial honey a minimum activity of 8 DN (Schade scale) is fixed.

Moisture content = 18,44% 

It is internationally recognized that good quality honey should be processed at less than 20% water content.  Low water content is desirable because honey may begin to ferment and lose its fresh quality if the water-in-honey is greater than 20%

UK Law - Moisture content—  (a)all honey except for honey specified in paragraph (b), (c) or (d) not more than 20%.
