The myth surrounding ‘Organic honey’

The market for honey is divided into mass market honey and organic honey. Mass market honey is pasteurised apiculture honey sold at relatively cheaper price when compared to raw honey. Organic on the other hand is apiculture or forest honey bottled raw.

By definition, anything organic should be free of additives, right?  Most that claim to be organic honey is harvested from apiculture boxes set up in farms that practice organic farming. The shortcoming of such practice is the possibility of some level of residuals of pesticides/antibiotics from surrounding farms entering the honey that don’t practice organic farming unless the honey itself is organic certified.

So the most reliable honey, when you want ‘Pure organic honey’ is to opt for forest honey. Since there is no possibility of any contaminates in forest honey.

Origin of our Honey

 

Honeys are also differentiated by where the hives are located. Provenance plays an important role in determining the floral diet of the bees, and the nutrients native to that region.

Our raw, pure and wild honeys come from hill ranges that are far from the madding crowd and the attendant pollution and floral degeneration. The areas include:

  • Nilgiris Honey: From Ooty and surroundings
  • Palani Hills Honey: From Kodaikanal and surroundings
  • Javadu Hill Honey: between Vellore and Thiruvannamalai
  • Thally Hills Honey: From the high ranges around Bangalore
