Wholesome! - Organic Honey - 16 oz. (454 g.)

Wholesome! Organic Honey is deliciously decadent, with a delightful butterscotch essence. Honeybees make this delightful multi-floral nectar in protected organic hives in Southern Mexico and Brazil. It is perfect for drizzling on warm biscuits, hard cheeses or Greek yogurt. It easily blends into healthy salad dressings, protein shakes or fruit smoothies. Wholesome! loves it in soothing hot tea and morning coffee too.

The beekeepers tend to their hives deep in the dedicated organic zones in the jungle including fair trade coffee plantations. The honeybees forage only on the wild jungle’s natural wildflowers, far from any exposure to GMO’s or pollutants. Beekeepers protect their hives as well as native plant forage areas to encourage biodiversity and help the forests thrive. Wholesome! Organic Honey is free from chemical residue, as the plants surrounding the hives have not been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides and the hives have not been treated with antibiotics. This helps protect the health of the bees and beekeepers. With the increasing threat of declining bee populations due to heavy use of chemical pesticides, Wholesome! beekeepers have committed to raising their bees and harvesting their honey in the most organic and sustainable ways possible. This means you get the best tasting and purest honey! In fact, Wholesome! has some of the best honey in the world as previously voted on at the World Beekeeping Awards by International Congress of Apiculture.

Wholesome! Frequently Asked Questions

How do bees make honey?
Honey is the sweet fluid produced by honey bees from the nectar of flowers. Worker honeybees transform the floral nectar that they gather into honey by adding enzymes to the nectar and reducing the moisture – as defined by the National Honey Board.

Why is fair trade honey important?
At Wholesome!, they ethically source their organic honey from fair trade certified beekeeping cooperatives in order to aid beekeepers and provide financial benefits for their families and communities. Wholesome! pays a fair price directly to the beekeeper cooperatives for their fair trade certified honey.

What environmental impacts does Organic Apiculture (Beekeeping) have?
Organic raw honey is collected from beekeepers who do not use any pesticides or antibiotics in hive management.

Why is Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) a concern?
Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a major concern because bees are used as natural pollinators. Bees are a critical link in U.S. agriculture as a pollinator for major food crops such as almonds, clover, orange, apples, alfalfa, blueberries, peaches, etc.

What is Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD)?
Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is the phenomenon that occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. Studies have shown a link between pesticide use (neonicotinoid) and CCD. Neonicotinoids reduce a bee’s resistance to mites as well as impair the bee’s neurological functions. Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine. In the 1980s, Shell, and in the 1990s, Bayer, started work on their development. The neonicotinoid family includes acetamiprid, clothianidin, imidacloprid, nitenpyram, nithiazine, thiacloprid and thiamethoxam. Imidacloprid is the most widely used insecticide in the world.

Why is fair trade honey important?
At Wholesome!, they ethically source their organic honey from fair trade certified beekeeping cooperatives in order to aid beekeepers and provide financial benefits for their families and communities. Wholesome! pays a fair price directly to the beekeeper cooperatives for their fair trade certified honey.

How is organic apiculture (beekeeping) different from conventional, local honey beekeeping?
Local, organic honey cannot be produced in the USA in large, commercially-viable quantities without the use of pesticides due to parasites such as the varroa and tracheal mites. Organic honey must be sourced from countries where the parasites are not present. Countries such as Brazil and Mexico support organic apiculture (beekeeping) as a source of commerce where honey production is not a just by-product of agricultural pollination.

Is crystallized honey still good?
Yes. Crystallization is the natural process by which the glucose in honey precipitates out of the liquid honey. If your honey crystallizes, place the bottle in warm water bath to liquefy, or simply dissolve the honey in a warm beverage. It is still ok to consume crystallized honey.

Is pollen removed from Wholesome! Organic Honey during processing?
Wholesome! Organic Raw Honey is minimally strained to keep most of the natural pollen properties within it. It is not heated over 110 degrees F to ensure all the natural enzymes are left within the honey.
