This strong, balanced honey is packed full of vitamins and minerals. Golden coloured, and with a familiar taste and earthy notes, this is a classic ‘honey’ honey – Reminiscent of ‘Winnie The Pooh’ honey.
Sunflower honey carries across a touch of the earthy, sunflower flavour we may be familiar with from sunflower seeds. This sets the ideal backdrop to the classic, strong honey flavour that sunflower honey has. Ideal for black tea or porridge, it is also a hit with children. Reminiscent of ‘Winnie The Pooh’ honey, it is a great way to introduce further minerals and vitamins into a child’s diet.
Sunflower honey – nature’s goodness.
With a unique, cartoon-esque, bright yellow colour. It contains high proline and acidity content, as well as a glucose content (as opposed to high fructose). This makes it unique honey in terms of nutritional value and acts as a brilliant sweetener, with glucose being a more ‘filling’ or satisfying sugar than fructose, reducing the urge to binge or overload on sugar.
What should I do if it crystalises?
It is important to note that all honey, not just sunflower, can be enjoyed after and during crystallisation. It has no effect on the quality of the honey and is quite often the preferred texture for some uses. In addition, due to the crystals, the honey melts slower in the mouth, both enhancing the taste profile as well as enhancing the number of nutritional elements that the body can process from the honey.
All raw honey will crystalise, however not all honey will do so at the same rate. Sunflower honey undergoes a fast crystallisation (between 20 days and 2 months depending on the environment it is stored in). If you would like to reverse this process, ensure the lid of the jar is sealed and place the jar in warm water (about 43c) and repeat until your desired texture is achieved.
