Marri Red Gum Honey
It is full-bodied honey, high in antioxidants and antimicrobial properties and shares similar medicinal properties and TA ratings to Bella Bees Jarrah honey. A useful natural treatment but with a deliciously bold and distinctive flavour.
Bella Bees Marri Red Gum Honey comes from the nectar and pollen of the flowers of the Marri tree, commonly known as the Red Gum, due to the blood-red sap that can seep from the trees, which are native to Western Australia.
Our Marri Red Gum Honey is harvested from pristine natural environments of the Southern Region of Western Australia, far from any industry or suburban settings, resulting in honey that is pure, natural, chemical and pollutant-free.
The honey is unprocessed, cold spun from ripe honeycombs, and coarse filtered to maintain the distinct taste of pure, raw and 100%, natural honey. Unfortunately, much of the commercial honey available today is processed and heat-treated, which effectively reduces the antimicrobial properties and benefits of the honey.
Bella Bees Marri Red Gum Honey is only coarse strained to remove any larger chunks of the honeycomb. Our honey is never heat-treated, and for this reason, retain much of its natural goodness, nutritional qualities, vitamins, minerals, trace pollen from the hive, propolis particles, fine comb particles, antimicrobial properties and antioxidants.
We are blessed to have some of the most pristine natural environments and bushlands in the world here in Western Australia, and it is from these native Marri Red Gum trees that our bees produce some of the worlds cleanest and most deliciously honey.
Bella Bees Honey does not recommend storing Marri Red Gum Honey in a refrigerator, as it significantly accelerates the process of crystallisation and will harden your honey. For the best flavour, honey is best stored at room temperature.
During winter and if you are in an unusually cold area, try storing your honey jar next to a window where sunlight shines through and warms the honey up.
