Mohawk Valley Trading Company to Offer Comb Honey Starting Summer of 2013

Utica, NY — The Mohawk Valley Trading Company would like to announce that starting in the summer of 2013 they will be offering Comb Honey.

Comb honey is honey, intended for consumption, which still contains pieces of the hexagonal-shaped beeswax cells of the honeycomb. Before the invention of the honey extractor almost all honey produced was in the form of comb honey. Nowadays, most honey is produced for extraction but comb honey remains popular among consumers both for eating ‘as is’ and for combining with extracted honey to make Chunk Honey.

“The rawest honey available is comb honey cut from the hive,” said Mary Ross of the Mohawk Valley Trading Company where they specialize in raw honey. “Bottled honey is extracted from the beeswax comb and the comb is able to be used again, because the comb is completely removed to produce comb honey the bees and beekeeper must work harder to produce it.”

About Honey

Honey has been used by humans since ancient times for its health benefits and as a sweetener and flavoring for many foods and beverages with tea being the most popular. Honey bees make honey by collecting nectar from flowers and regurgitating it to store in beeswax honeycombs inside their hive. Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honey bees of the genus Apis and one it’s most popular uses is beeswax candles.

If you are planning to buy honey for its health-benefits, it must be raw honey. Heating honey (pasteurization) destroys the all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics. Honey that has been heated and filtered is called commercial, regular or liquid honey.

The flavor and color of honey is determined by the type of flower the bees gather the nectar from. Dark colored honey is considered to be higher in minerals and antioxidants than light colored honey and one of the most well known dark colored honeys is buckwheat honey. Raw buckwheat honey contains a higher amount of minerals and an antioxidant called polyphenol, which gives it its dark color.The benefits of buckwheat honey are many and well known.

Honey is a healthy alternative to refined sugar, however when cooking or baking with honey, it is not necessary to use raw honey since the heat destroys the all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics. Since the flavor and color of honey is determined by the type of flower the bees gather the nectar from, it is a good idea to taste the honey before using it in a recipe. For example; a dark honey like buckwheat honey will result in a strong, heavy, a pungent flavor, whereas orange blossom honey will result in a delicate orange flavor.

Organic honey from the United States is a myth because the country is too developed and uses too many agricultural and industrial chemicals to for the production of organic honey. Honey bees are free-roaming, wild creatures and it is impossible guarantee that while foraging they have not come in contact with prohibited substances, like pesticides.

Kosher honey is 100% honey with no additives or dilutions, thus: although not certified, pure, raw honey is kosher.

To get the best price when buying large quantities of honey, look for a company that sells bulk honey which is usually sold in 5 lb., 12 lb. and 60 lb. pails or 650 lb drums.

The Mohawk Valley Trading Company hours of operations are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST, seven days a week. Reach them at (315)-519-2640 to learn more.
