What type of honey is in HoneyWorks™?
- HoneyWorks™ is made with 100% U.S. sourced certified organic dark honey. While darker honey is more flavorful and intense than light, it also contains more nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. To be certified organic, the honey must contain ingredients with 95% or more certified organic, meaning free of synthetic additives like pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and dyes, and must not be processed using industrial solvents..
What are the key benefits of dark honey?
- The color of honey varies according to their botanical origin and the weather of the place where the plants grow. In general, dark honey has higher mineral content (e.g. potassium, manganese, iron, sodium, etc.) than lighter ones. Also, the darker the honey color, the higher the phenolic and flavonoid contents and the antioxidant levels, which are critical in counteracting free radicals responsible for triggering the aging process and diseases, such as cancer, hypertension and high blood cholesterol and diabetes (General Medicine, 2014; Food Chem. 2007). Full-bodied honeys, such as Blackbutt, Jarrah, Manuka, Thyme, Dandelion, Leatherwood, Meadow, Heather, Chestnut, Honeydew, and Buckwheat happen to have darker color.
