100% Natural Pure Honeycomb Of Wildflowers
Unblended, Unheated, Unprocessed, Unfiltered Honeycomb
Made in Mountains of Bulgaria.
Our honey is produced locally in Bulgaria giving it a rich aroma and rich in flavor. Our honeycomb preserves the distinctive flavors and nutrients naturally found in honey.
This is excellent and delicious honeycomb honey, collected in natural fields in September 2021!
The honeycomb is a 100% natural product, constructed by honeybees, with beneficial effects on various systems of the body, especially our stomach and digestive system.
Honeycomb is basically beeswax and raw honey. The beeswax has very little nutritional value Honeycomb with the exception of trace amounts of vitamin A. However since our system does not break down beeswax, it is a very good source of roughage. Raw honey as we have discussed is very nutritious; packed full of vitamins, enzymes, pollen, and antioxidants. Interestingly, the most nutritious of all raw honey is honey still sealed in the wax cells of the honeycomb.
Honey in its purest form (inside the cells of honeycomb) contains very little water. But honey, when exposed to air, has a tendency to pull water from the atmosphere. So, honey that is removed from the comb and exposed to air holds around 12% more water than honey left sealed in the comb. This dilution creates a slight but measurable difference in nutritional value by weight. Honey that remains sealed in the beeswax honeycomb cells is without question the purest form of raw honey.
Honey bees are not the only insect to make use of this brilliant design. Paper wasps (Polistinae) construct their nests from paper using a repeating hexagonal honeycomb pattern. Although these insects do not produce honey, they do use hexagonal cells for developing brood just as the honey bee does.
The hexagon is the base shape for a matrix that minimized the used of construction material while at the same time maximizing the strength and reducing the weight of the final product.
