GE Free, 100% pure honey, Sustainable beekeeping
Historically, honey was used as a healing substance. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants; all of which are beneficial for the human body. Most honeys also contain an antibacterial component called hydrogen peroxide. Honey originates from the nectar and saccharine secretions of plants that are gathered,
modified, stored and dehydrated by the honey bee (Apis melifera). Honey consists essentially of different natural sugars, with the predominant sugars being fructose and glucose. Honey shall be pure and free from additives, preservatives, noxious substances and admixtures of any kind including sucrose and invert sugars.
Honey contains 0.3% protein (primarily resulting from pollen) of this 1% is allergenic protein. Food Standards Australia and New Zealand state that a declaration of Honey as an ingredient is sufficient acknowledgement of this allergen.

Store in cool, dry area and keep tightly covered. The recommended storage temperature for honey is18-24°C (64-75°F). Honey's colour or flavour may change
gradually, but it will remain safe to consume indefinitely if it has been stored properly. Over time, the honey may become cloudy and crystallise; the honey will still
be safe to consume if it has been stored properly. If honey crystallizes, place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve. Refrigeration is not
recommended, as it accelerates the crystallisation process. After prolonged storage, honey may darken in colour and lose some of its flavour.
