About our honey
Here at Makuru Health we closely monitor all aspects of our honey production and processing with the honey production team, from beekeeping, hive health, extracting, processing, packaging and distribution of the honey.
This unique honey is produced from black beech trees not from flowers. Our honey is collected along the foothills from Mount Hutt to Staveley in Mid Canterbury. This is the best and purest honey. These areas are away from intensive farming practices where a lots of sprays and agri-chemicals are used
Mees processes are state of the art and we have a certified facility. They maintain a number of legislative requirements, Health and Safety programs, Food Safety and Risk Management programs.
After the honey has been harvested it is brought to Mees honey shed where it will be extracted from the honeycomb within the frames.
BEECH FOREST DEW HONEY
Sourced from Beech forest in Mid Canterbury New Zealand, near the famous Mount Hutt.
Honeydew is dark in colour, and tastes a little like maple syrup. Honeydew is a syrupy type honey that doesn't crystallise in cool temperatures
Honeydew is made by small insects that inhabit the beech forests and produce a sticky liquid which is collected by honeybees.
Honeydew contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides, it also contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other honeys.
Studies have shown that New Zealand Beech Honeydew has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of honeys produced in New Zealand.
In a study done at Lincoln University located in Christchurch, Beech dew honey had the highest levels of polyphenolics. Its antioxidant power was comparable to that of other top honeys of NZ.
Dew Honey Research
Beech Forest dew honey has been found to have an exceptionally high level of iron-binding antioxidant activity. The study Identifying iron-binding antioxidants in New Zealand honeydew honey by Omar, S. B. from the University of Waikato and published in 2013, investigated the stability of the antioxidants on exposure to heat and high and low pH.
