With so many unique products at Shiloh Farms, it’s possible to learn something new each day! Today we want to feature one of our most popular all-natural sweeteners, Raw Alfalfa Honey. It’s a great alternative sweetener for baking and cooking and also highlights many different flavors. It’s not only tasty, but good for you too!
Raw Alfalfa Honey is the concentrated nectar of the blue flowers on Alfalfa, which bloom in the summer months. Alfalfa honey contains enzymes, which honeybees insert into the combs. Through keeping the honey in a raw state, you receive the benefits of the enzymes that are naturally occurring in the honey and comb. Our Raw Alfalfa Honey is naturally crystallized, unfiltered, unheated and unpasteurized with nothing removed. The honey is white or extra light amber in color with a fine subtle, sweet flavor.
Honey has many benefits other than enhancing the flavors of your food. Here are just some of the great uses for honey:
- If you’re suffering from a sore throat due to allergies or a cold, raw honey is a great natural throat soother.
- Eating a small amount of honey before a workout helps your muscles stay nourished longer and delays fatigue, and it even gives you an extra boost of energy.
- Raw honey is also a great source of antioxidants. Honey not only has a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals, but it also contains the flavonoid pinocembrin, which is unique to honey. Pinocembrin supports and promotes healthy enzyme activity.
