Our new flavour strips are the first change. They are stronger and so will need to be cut with a knife/scissors when you get your Elixir Honey home. The labels peel off very nicely and easily for full recycling of your honey jar.
See how our raw honey sets in the jar - you can see the sugar crystals forming. This is 100% natural and it's proof that our honey is raw.
Our bodies & brains need good sugar to live. Simple sugars from honey (& fruit) give your body good energy AND valuable nutrients.
Our body breaks food down into glucose in order to use it for energy to lead our busy lives. The more complex a food is, the more work it takes to break it down. Honey is made mostly of sugar, but it’s only about 30% glucose and less than 40% fructose (the sugar typically found in fruits). And there are also about 20 other sugars in the mix, many of which are much more complex, and dextrin, a type of starchy fiber. This means that your body expends more energy to break it all down to glucose. So you get the energy without the sugar rush and you end up with fewer calories.
Tasty brekkie - but you have to mix it night before or very early in morning if you get up then. Alas my picture was taken sans banana and sultanas. 1/2 tsp ground flax 1/2 cup oats 1/2 cup water 1 dessert spoon of sultanas 1 sliced banana 1 tsp honey drizzled on top
Put the first 4 ingredients in a cup at least an hour before you want to eat them. Add sliced banana and drizzle with honey. Enjoy!
Bees hard at work filling the honeycomb. When they are happy the moisture is out of the honey they 'cap it off'. This means they put a little white lid on top to keep the honey in. Got to love those bees!
