Buckwheat honey is pungent in flavor with molasses and malty tones and a lingering aftertaste. Buckwheat honey is also very dark in color. As a general rule, darker honeys tend to be higher in antioxidant compounds than lighter ones.
Because of this characteristic, darker honeys also tend to be higher in mineral content on average, as compared to lighter honeys. The buckwheat plant is an excellent honey source, sometimes planted by beekeepers specifically for honey production. The blossoms are rich in nectar and blooming can continue into the fall.
The advantage with buying your honey direct from us versus your local store is that honey at your store has been heated extensively to help prevent any crystallization that might occur while it is sitting on the shelf.
Excessive heating like this removes many of the minerals and qualities of honey that make it so beneficial for your diet.
We also offer raw honey which has not been heated or filtered - please see our raw honey listings.
