This all-natural premium product is delivered to you as nature intended. Unprocessed and exactly as you would find it in the hive. Our clever bees make these honeycomb partitions directly in special rings, so unlike most other honeycombs, it has not been cut into pieces, and is a whole complete unit with little or no honey leakage.
Honeycomb contains all the natural goodness because it’s not pasteurized or filtered, so can contain traces of bee pollen, propolis and royal jelly.
Honeycomb is rich in carbohydrates and antioxidants. It also contains trace amounts of several other nutrients.
Its main component is raw honey, which offers small amounts of protein, vitamins, and minerals — but is composed of 95–99% sugar and water
Because it hasn’t been processed, raw honeycontains enzymes like glucose oxidase, which give honey antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
You can eat the whole honeycomb, including the honey and waxy cells surrounding it, and enjoy numerous health benefits from doing so.
Honeycomb is generally considered safe to eat.
However, because it contains honey, it is at risk of contamination fromC. botulinumspores. These are particularly harmful to pregnant womenand children under 12 months of age
In some cases, eating large amounts of honeycomb may cause stomach obstructions. To minimize the risk of this happening, it may be best to avoid eating large amounts of honeycomb daily — or simply spit out the waxy cells.
Moreover, people with allergies to bee venom or pollen may want to use caution when eating honeycomb, as it may cause an allergic reaction.
It’s also important to note that despite its many potential benefits, honeycomb remains very high in sugar — so it’s best to eat it in moderation.
