Blackberry honey variety is obtained from the nectar that honeybees gather from the flowers of blackberry bushes in April - May. Weeks before the berries are ripe, the honey bees gather nectar from the wild blackberries to finish the world famous wild blackberry honey.
Many attempts have been made to describe the taste of Blackberry honey but the description will never replace the flavor tasted in your mouth. Here is our humble description: a crisp, mild, and distinctive array of flavor, which will bring many back to their childhood memories of gathering blackberries from the nearby forest. Other characteristics of the blackberry honey are: low flowery perfume aroma, transparent and thick viscous appearance.
Some of the nutritional values and health benefits include antioxidants, vitamin C, and fiber.
When honey comes from the beehive, it contains an estimated 600 components including small amounts of a wide range of vitamins, enzymes and other nutrients essential to your health.
Here’s a list of some of the vitamins:
Thiamin (Vitamin B1)
Vitamin B1 is needed for a healthy nervous system, digestive system, muscles and heart and may help with the healing of alcohol-damaged nerve tissues. It is water soluble and destroyed by heat, alcohol and coffee of all things (as good a reason to drink green tea as any).
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
Vitamin B2 helps to maintain healthy eyesight, good skin, nails and hair. It also helps in the digestion of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Destroyed by alcohol and light which is why your 4 seasons honey should be stored in a cool dark place.
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin helps to keep the nervous system in good condition; helps to improve circulation; it is part of the process whereby energy is released from food; It has also been found to have a role in the manufacture of sex and stress hormones. It is water soluble and also destroyed by heating and freezing.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
This vitamin helps to keep the nervous system and epithelial cells in good condition. It also is part of the process whereby energy is released from food. It has also been found to have a role in the manufacture of stress hormones. It is water soluble and also destroyed by heating and freezing.
Pyridoxamine (Vitamin B6)
This vitamin helps to keep the nervous system and skin in good condition. It also is part of the process that enables the absorption of protein and carbohydrate and required to form red blood cells. It is water soluble and also destroyed by heating. Strangely, it is also destroyed by estrogen so women taking the contraceptive pill often need to take in more than the usual dose (NB: Seek medical advice before exceeding the RDA for this vitamin).
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Vitamin C is best known for its contribution to the health of the immune system but it can also help with healing wounds and reducing scurvy. It is easily destroyed by heat and light so for maximum concentration, store your organic wild honey in a cool dark place.
Keeping the honey raw and unpasteurized means that you preserve all of those many hundreds of unique components that make honey so special. Commercial honey that has been processed loses many of these vital vitamins during the processing.
Why we can not sell our honey cheaper?
1. We do not mix this honey with other cheap ingredients in order to bulk up the honey. This is pure honey. There are no additional ingredients.
2. We do not heat our honey in order to extract it more easily. Yes, we spend more time and energy manually extracting the honey- because we want to keep our honey raw with those amazing health benefits. You can read about those benefits below.
3. We do not filter our honey. So this honey has natural bee pollen, micro pieces of propolis and bee wax, all of which benefit your health.
4. We do not use our bees for commercial pollination. Our bee farm is located in a wild place, so our honey does not have any pesticides or herbicides or other harmful chemicals.
5. Any real beekeeper will tell you how much work is required with bees to get each jar of honey. If you have bees, then you just work, work and work.
6. We do not use any chemicals in order kill pests found in the hives, nor do we use chemicals in the winter time in order to help the bees survive until spring. If you do your research you will find that 90% of beekeepers use chemicals on bees.
For centuries, honey has been used for everything from sweetening foods and drinks to treating and healing our bodies. You get the most benefits from honey when it is used natural - which means raw and in pure, organic form - straight from the hive. Raw honey simply tastes better and is more potent.
Honey is considered one of nature's purest foods. It's a natural antioxidant, contains 22 amino acids, 27 minerals and 5,000 enzymes. Organic honey can help keep you healthy by boosting the immune system, fighting disease and treating a wide range of health problems from coughs and colds to digestion problems, arthritis and allergies.
Other health benefits that come from using raw organic honey is a very sweet list:
Anty-Cancer activities of Raw Honey
Honey is known for centuries for its medicinal and health-promoting properties. It contains various kinds of phytochemicals with high phenolic and flavonoid content which contribute to its high antioxidant activity. Agent that has strong antioxidant property may have the potential to prevent the development of cancer as free radicals and oxidative stress play a significant role in inducing the formation of cancers. Phytochemicals available in honey could be narrowed down into phenolic acids and polyphenols. Variants of polyphenols in honey were reported to have anti proliferative property against several types of cancer.
Though honey has more calories than sugar, honey when consumed with warm water helps in digesting the fat stored in your body. Similarly honey and lemon juice and honey and cinnamon help in reducing weight. Read more about benefits of honey in weight loss.
The latest theory based on the hibernation diet also builds a link between fructose-rich honey and weight loss. It suggests taking a generous spoonful or two of honey at night, either as a warm drink or straight from the jar, and promises to help us sleep and lose weight at the same time by fueling the liver, speeding up fat-burning metabolism and easing stress hormones. And if you are considering artificial sugar or sweetener like Aspartame to help you lose weight, you are putting yourself completely on the wrong track. It might get you off from a few calories but it gives you a bunch of other serious health problems.
Improving Athletic Performance
Recent research has shown that honey is an excellent ergogenic aid and helps in boosting the performance of athletes. Honey facilitates in maintaining blood sugar levels, muscle recuperation and glycogen restoration after a workout.
According to USDA, honey contains about 64 calories per tablespoon. Hence honey is also used by many as a source of energy. On the other hand, one tablespoon of sugar will give you about 15 calories. Further the carbohydrates in the honey can be easily converted into glucose by even the most sensitive stomachs. Hence it is very easy to digest honey.
Sugar can be substituted with honey in many food and drinks. Honey contains about 69% glucose and fructose enabling it to be used as a sweetener.
Source of Vitamins and Minerals
Honey contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. The type of vitamins and minerals and their quantity depends on the type of flowers used for apiculture. Commonly, honey contains Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron. Check for the vitamin and mineral content in sugar from any source, you will find it to be either nil or miniscule.
Antibacterial and Antifungal Properties
Honey has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and hence it can be used as a natural antiseptic.
Honey contains nutraceuticals, which are effective in removing free radicals from our body. As a result, our body immunity is improved.

This Honey has a completely unique taste and texture which is just out of this world, unlike any other honey on the market.
Instead in the supermarkets we're being sold a pale imitation of natural honey - with most of the goodness processed out. For instance, out of over 30 different honeys I counted at my local store yesterday only one was raw and would have contained all these compounds. At other supermarkets and even a health food shop there was no raw honey. Almost all honey in stores that labeled "raw" is not raw. Yet most shoppers aren't aware of this because the choice available at supermarkets seems so big, and the discerning shopper may think that the organic honey is equivalent to raw honey.
If you really want natural honey, with all the natural benefits, you're faced with a problem. Whether you or I like it or not the big honey producers are emasculating one of the finest natural substances known to man - and we're not even being given the choice of buying it in its natural unprocessed form in most stores.
More than 90 % of the honey sold in US grocery stores is not exactly what the bees produce.
