This unique, creamy golden honey is the purest, most nutritious form of honey. 100% raw, it is the honey that comes directly from the honeycomb without heating, without filtering or any kind of processing. It is the healthiest choice among the various forms of honey as it has the most nutritional value and contains amylase, an enzyme concentrated in flower pollen which helps predigest starchy foods like breads.
Since ancient times, raw honey has been known to have numerous health benefits and healing properties. Its high antioxidant content is beneficial in supporting enzyme activity in the body, and it’s amino acids are natures building blocks of protein. The flavanoids found in raw honey also give a healthy boost of energy. Additionally, raw honey much like vegetables, contains phytonutrients which provide anti-inflammatory benefits. As honey is produced from plants, it also has these phytonutrients. These valuable nutrients are unique to raw honey and disappear when honey is heavily processed.
Mellona’s wonderful raw honey comes from blossoms of scented Mediterranean flora such as Myrophora (wild Cyprus lavender), spatzia (sage), lapsana (rapeseed) and orange blossom. It has an exquisite flavour and fine aroma. The fact that it is unprocessed, without using any heat, means that it retains all of its intended nutritional benefits such as it being rich in antioxidants, amino acids, minerals & vitamins as well as helping with digestion & also being a very good anti-fungal.
We recommend Mellona raw honey with morning cereals, muesli or granola. Over a breakfast toast, mixed with Greek yoghurt and nuts, on waffles, ice cream or any other fruit. Or even mixed with balsamic vinegar to be used as a salad dressing. Importantly, this natural raw honey is the perfect natural sweetener, and can also be enjoyed by the spoonful entirely on its own.
