WEST AUSTRALIAN JARAH HONEY
Western Australian honey is known internationally for its great taste and clean, natural production environment.
One of the most unique honey varieties coming out of Western Australia is the increasingly popular Jarrah honey.Â Active Jarrah honey is highly regarded for its total antibacterial propertieslike Manuka honey.
Jarrah honey is produced by bees collecting nectar from flowers of the Jarrah tree (eucalyptus marginata) which is only found in Western Australia. This honey is acclaimed for its unique taste and healing properties. The honey is dark and thick with a smooth caramel taste.
Our Jarrah is 100% natural with no additives. We have the capacity to supply large volumes of Jarrah honey under our GREEN BEE brand.
Jarrah honey has an extremely high microbial activity when compared with other leading honeys.This makes Jarrah natures alternative to antibiotics. Jarrah is used on wounds to clean infections and as a result is known in Western Australia as the worldâ€™s â€˜Healing Honeyâ€™. When lightly applied to sun burns, Jarrah has been proven to relieve pain and quicken the recovery process. Jarrah also helps the stomach to fight bacteria and hence can be used to treat stomach problems and even bad breath.
Jarrah honey has been thoroughly researched by the Department of Agriculture And Food Research in Western Australia.
Jarrah honey has the following attributes:
Hydrogen Peroxide as Active Compound
Unlike Manuka honey which is very popular in New Zealand,Jarrah honey contains hydrogen peroxide compounds that creates a winning combination of delicious sweetness, antimicrobial effectiveness and an infinite shelf life. This compound, when applied to the face gives a lightening effect.
Low Glycaemic & Low Glucose
Low Glycaemic foods are known to reduce insulin response in the body and improve the blood cholesterol level. This is particularly important as one gets older. Low glucose foods are mildly sweet and gives Jarrah honey an infinite shelf life. This means that Jarrah will never crystallize even after thousands of years.
Fructose is absorbed more slowly and evenly than glucose. This means that it is perfect for endurance training and diabetics. There is even evidence by the creators of the Hibernation Diet â€“ Mike and Stuart McInnes that foods with a high fructose content such as Jarrah help to burn fat while you sleep while also increasing stamina.
High in Anti-Oxidants
Due to its high anti-oxidant levels Jarrah supports skin cell renewal, stimulates collagen and elastin production, proteins for wrinkle smoothing, collagen building, acne fighting. According to the National Cancer Institute of Australia foods with high antioxidant levels, fight free radicals that attack healthy cells & fight acne. Thus Jarrahâ€™s anti-oxidant levels are also arguably reduces the risk of cancer developing.
Honeyâ€™s anti-microbial quality is measured by the term â€œTotal Activity (TA)â€. The higher the Total Activity, the more active its antimicrobial strength. The anti-bacterial activity of the honey is derived via natural enzymes in the honey. Honey with a Total Activity of 15+ can be used to treat wounds, burns and skin infections. This treatment becomes increasingly effective as the TA level increases.
Jarrah honey is available in glass jars. The honey is carefully packed to retain its unique properties. The most common size is 500 grams.
Minimum order size is 1000 Kilograms (two thousand 500 gram jars).
