This is an excellent light-colored, beautiful citrus flavored honey. Raw, unfiltered, and unprocessed, this goes with everything. Meljess honey is from a very small family beekeeper. A lot of small honey producers use fancy containers. We love the easy-to-use 1½ pound squeeze container, especially if you use honey for baking.
The variety of honeys is simply enormous. We‘ve selected a collection with a wide range of taste, texture and color.
Honey contains at least 181 known organic compounds, and its antioxidant properties come from certain phenolics, peptides, organic acids, and enzymes it contains. Honey also contains salicylic acid, minerals, alpha-tocopherol, and oligosaccharides. Oligosaccharides help increase the number of beneficial bacteria in our digestive system, reduce levels of toxic metabolites in the intestine, help prevent constipation, and help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Tests have shown honey’s antioxidant qualities vary depending on the floral source of the honey, as well as how it was processed. In all cases, it’s the raw, unfiltered, unprocessed (non-pasteurized) honey that has the real healthful benefits. In general, the darker the color of the honey, the higher the level of antioxidants.
