Heathcote Honey
Honey- Nectar of the Gods.

Our honey is produced from our bees which are kept in beautiful rural Lincolnshire. The honey is harvested in the summer months and simply filtered and poured straight into glass jars. It is not heat treated or processed in any other way and thus retains its beautiful fragrant flavour.

Our bees forage for nectar on a variety of local wild flowers and trees. Raw honey contains pollen and propolis and may contain small particles of wax.

Our bees are fed on their own honey throughout the winter and are not fed sugar syrup. They are not stressed by moving the hives or treating with harsh chemicals. The resulting honey is raw and unadulterated.

Over time all pure honey will granulate and change colour. This change is the best proof of its quality and can easily be restored to the liquid state by loosening the lid and gently warming the jar in hot water until runny again.

The composition of honey depends largely on which flowers are visited by our bees when they are collecting nectar. Glucose and fructose, the main simple sugars, are present roughly in equal quantities together with a small amount of sucrose.

These sugars give our honey its principal characteristics together with other constituents such as acids, protein pigments and minerals which all help to distinguish the individual honey type.

Honey for Health - Honey is an acid product, with a PH of between 3.2 and 4.5 which is low enough to inhibit the growth of many animal pathogens. It is also antibacterial and well known as a cough and cold remedy. Eating honey can also inhibit the effects of alcohol by providing the body with sodium, potassium and fructose which aid recovery. Honey is rich in vitamin B6 which can also further reduce hangover symptoms.
