Honey: The natural sweetener that isn’t so natural anymore

Major factors like the season when bees extract the nectar, their species and the flowers they collect it from define the taste and texture of honey. So how do big brands promise uniformity of taste and texture all year round from millions of bees, spread over a country as vast and environmentally diverse as India? The answer - their honey is not only highly processed, but also, in some cases, has other taste mixes and syrups added. Not very sustainable at all.

Honey, I shrunk your flavour choice!

So does honey need to be scratched off your grocery list for reasons of sustainability? We assure you, no. Honey is a very nutritious sweetener and when collected ethically, can be a sustainable alternative to processed sugar. Choose your brands wisely and you’ll realise that honey that comes in a variety of flavours, each offering a unique health benefit. The flavours are a result of different bee species collecting flowers from different flowers in various seasons.
