WHY KEEPR'S HONEY
The healthy, nutritious, natural alternative to sugar.
Pure honey is naturally sweet and has become a healthier and tastier option over processed sugars and sweeteners. Honey contains many vitamins, minerals and natural antioxidants which helps maintain good health and build immunity against sickness.
Keepr’s provides pure 100% raw honey straight from the hive, retaining all it’s natural goodness. We believe every jar of honey should be as fresh tasting as possible, which is why we let our bees do the work by themselves.
We have a wide range including, Cotswold, Apple Blossom, Borage, Heather, Wild Flower, Mature, as well as our renowned manuka Honey Blend (known for its health benefits).
HOW IS HONEY MADE
Made By Nature
Honey starts as flower nectar collected by bees, which gets broken down into simple sugars stored inside the honeycomb. The design of the honeycomb and constant fanning of the bees' wings causes evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey. Honey's colour and flavour varies based on the nectar collected by the bees. For example, honey made from orange blossom nectar might be light in colour, whereas honey from wildflowers might have a dark amber color.
On average, a hive will produce about 65 pounds of surplus honey each year. Beekeepers harvest it by collecting the honeycomb frames and scraping off the wax cap that bees make to seal off honey in each cell. Once the caps are removed, the frames are placed in an extractor, a centrifuge that spins the frames, forcing honey out of the comb.
To HomeAfter the honey is extracted, it’s strained to remove any remaining wax and other particles. Some beekeepers and bottlers might heat the honey to make this process easier, but that doesn’t alter the liquid's natural composition. After straining, it's time to bottle, label and bring it to you. If the ingredient label says “pure honey,” nothing was added from bee to hive to bottle. Source Charles Nash
One of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world
Manuka honey, is only produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, is one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world. There are many Manuka honey uses that range from healing sore throats and digestive illnesses to curing Staph infections and gingivitis.
"Manuka honey has been recognised for its anti-bacterial and wound-healing properties for many years. ... "It is significant that a honey can do this.... The manuka honey alone can inhibit cancer growth by 30 per cent, but when combined with chemotherapy, there was 61 per cent inhibition,” Dr Al Ramadi stressed.
