It is a common misunderstanding that since honey is acidic, it will corrode metal surfaces and produce elements that is unhealthy for consumption. Hence many consumers thought it is best to use non-metal spoons to scoop honey.
This is not a correct concept.
Honey has been known for ages to be one of the most remarkable foods for the human body. If it is good for the body, it definitely will not corrode metal spoons!
Yes, many consumers in the market have not heard about Beyond Health Leatherwood Honey. The reason is that it is extremely rare and limited as Leatherwood trees can only be found in Tasmania, an island state south of mainland Australia. Leatherwood typically flowers after 75 years of age and the honey that is harvested from it has an unique, somewhat spicy taste.
What is less known, is that Leatherwood Honey has been tested by Australian's Queensland University to contain at least 2-3 times more anti-oxidants than the common Australian honey found in the market.
What this means is that the consumers are getting 2-3 times more of the goodness from Leatherwood than any other honeys!
The authenticity of honey can be verified easily by the following ways:
Fake or adulterated honey tend to have a clear liquid form. Real honey contains enzymes and live pollens; thus it tends to have a “cloudy” form,
or inconsistency in the look for different bottles or batches.
Fake honey often has a strong artificially sweet “candy” odour which is sharp and tangy. Real honey has a natural and pleasant smell with a hint
of floral aroma and musky earthiness. If any honey carries an overwhelming scent, it could have been enhanced with artificial scent. Poor quality
honey can be even bitter, sour or has an unpleasant odour.
Fake honey has a manufactured sweetness and some even has a bitter and artificial taste to it. Real honey on the other hand has a wonderful
natural floral sweetness with a mild, lasting after taste.
Contents on the Label:
Read the contents on the label and you will notice that artificial honey may contain refined sugar, glucose syrup, dyes, flavours and flavour
enhancers etc. Pure honey does not contain such additional elements.
Real honey has a low water content thus it has a fairly thick texture. Fake honey is usually light and runny due to the high water content.
As honey is an all-natural product, the environment in which it is produced is extremely important. Australia’s pristine island state, Tasmania
boasts the world's cleanest air and water and has some of world most unspoiled forests. 40% of the island area has been dedicated to the
national rainforest and conservation area and our honey is produced right in this area where the sources of clean air and water could nurture the
flowers and plants which in turn guarantees the superior quality of the honey produced here.
