Organic honey from bees feeding on a plant from which 201 bioactive compounds have been identified by scientists.
In 2018 this honey won a One-Star Great Taste Award by the United Kingdom Guild of Fine Food.
The independent food judges who awarded this honey a One-Star award described it as :
"Creamy, light golden in colour with a wonderful consistency and heady, floral aroma. Smooth on the palate with fudgey notes and a slight astringency which provides a good flavour balance. A delicious, moreish honey which the judges agreed is well worth a star."
Note: since raw honey is a natural product produced by bees, each batch of raw honey differs in taste and texture from season to season so a creamy honey may be more or less crystallised from season to season. This does not affect the nutritional properties of the honey.
With a light, crystallised texture and a delicious citrusy taste of pineapple mousse, this bioactive honey comes from bees feeding on golden bidens pilosa flowers that grow in the 6000ft high plains of the Mexican Plateau in north-central Mexico, a region once home to the Aztec Empire.
To date, 201 bioactive compounds have been identified in the bidens pilosa plant and it is one of the most potent healing herbs known to exist.
The bidens pilosa plant has been used in Latin America for centuries to provide relief to the symptoms of over 40 categories of conditions from ulcers to auto-immune disorders.
This is a prized, sought-after honey in Latin America and this is the first time it has been made available in the United Kingdom, exclusively by the Latin Honey Shop.
It is raw, certified organic by the Organic Food Federation, unfiltered, unpasteurised and living... as natural as if you collected it yourself.
This honey tastes delicious straight from the spoon or mixed into cold water, makes a nutritious and refreshing drink. It also tastes sublime on good quality vanilla ice cream.

Raw Organic Golden Pilosa Honey from Mexico 227g
Nearly all of the pollen in this honey (73%) comes from bees feeding on the nectar from bidens pilosa flowers that grow in the 6000ft high plains of the Mexican Plateau.
The Mexican Plateau is a large area of arid highland that covers most of northern and central Mexico. It is covered by deserts and shrubland.
Bidens pilosa is a tall branched plant native to south America that grows up to 1.8m tall. It has thin yellow flowers that cluster into spiky seeds. The seed clusters are surrounded by 4-5 white petals.
Once a year the Moreno family beekeepers harvest this honey so we can bring it to your table straight from the hive, raw, living and unfiltered.
