This honey comes from the pollen of avocado trees in Southern California. It’s darker, richer in flavor, but not as sweet as some honeys. It’s raw, unfiltered and unpasteurized so you get all the health benefits including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytonutrients.
The wide range of beneficial compounds in honey make it a real SuperFood. We’re still learning about all the advantageous substances in honey but we do know its antioxidant activity comes from the phenolics, peptides, organic acids and enzymes present in the golden liquid.
The antioxidants in each honey varies depending on what kind of flower the pollen came from. Typically, the darker the honey the higher the level of antioxidants. Daily consumption of honey can raise blood levels of protective antioxidants.
Honey also contains salicylic acid, minerals, and alpha-tocopherol, as well as oligosaccharides, which increase the number of good bacteria in your colon, reduce the level of toxic metabolites in your intestine, help prevent constipation, and help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
We like a variety of honey. Some honey is better for baking, some honey is better for dressings and marinades. This is a great honey for cooking or pairing with nut butters. And you can use honey on your skin and hair for a real beauty treat.
