SCIENCE OF HONEY
Honey has been used since ancient times for its special properties. Good quality honey can be high in beneficial plant compounds including antioxidants. It contains a number of nutrients (see below) and has high levels of glucose and fructose which offers a healthier alternative to refined sugar making it a great source of energy. However, the composition of a honey batch depends on the floral source(s) available to the bees that produced the honey.
We operate a team of beekeepers and has hives are located throughout the beautiful regions at top of the South Island of New Zealand. Hives enjoy spectacular and remote locations including Maori Bay in the Marlborough Sounds and Rainbow Station in St Arnaud.
Here at Bee Zesty/Nelson Honey we can trace our honey back to the hives they came from and our team of beekeepers maintain the health and happiness of all our bees.
