Frequently Asked Question!

bee hive yellow

Ken started his beekeeping journey in 2015. After many years of saying we need more bees for pollination the talk of this new fangled Flowhive got me thinking, well its time to step up and become a beekeeper. Once the decision was made then the Journey began.

It’s exactly that, honey that has come straight from the bees, and is not treated in any way. It is taken from the hive in frames, spun with centrifugal force, and drained through a fine sieve to remove any wax particles. After that, we bottle up the honey for you and it is ready to make any dish delicious and nutritious.

The honey found in supermarkets is often pasteurised (heated to 70C or higher). This is done commercially, so that the honey looks smoother and cleaner, is easier to handle and package, and stays at a runny consistency. However, this is an unnecessary measure. Honey from big companies also poses huge ethical problems in Australia, paying beekeepers bottom dollar for their produce, as well as often mixing local honey with imported honey from China to keep production costs at a minimum.

Banno’s Bees & Honey raw honey is a natural, Australian product with optimum taste and the beautiful imperfections of anything that comes straight from nature. That means that raw honey will always crystallise within a few months after being harvested from the hive. This has no impact on the product whatsoever, other than giving it a thicker texture. Actually, raw honey tastes better, as heating denatures the products’s fine aromas and enzymes.

Raw honey also has a lot of health benefits, as it is high in antioxidants, making it great for people with a common cold or sore throat, and, when taken daily, can assist those suffering from bad hay fever. It can even be applied externally on wounds to promote quicker healing.
