Creamed Honey with Criollo Cocoa - BIO - Raw - 400g
Organic Creamed Honey with Criollo Cocoa
Creamed honey is honey that has been undergone a special mixing procedure in order to control crystallization and influence the size of the crystals. The result is a honey with a smooth spreadable consistency and a delicious texture. The process does not involve heat or chemicals. It is purely mechanical and does not influence the other properties of honey.
The criollo cocoa (arguably, the best, less bitter variety of cocoa there is) gives to this cream a rich and onctuouse taste that will enhance your treats and satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoy it simple, as a snack or on toast, on top of your morning yogurt, porridge or other deserts.
About raw honey
Raw honey or “as it exists in the beehive” is made by extracting honey from the honeycombs, pouring it over a mesh to separate the honey from impurities (like beeswax and dead bees) and bottled.
For commercial reasons, most brands of honey are pasteurized and filtered. Pasteurization is a process that destroys the yeast found in honey by applying high heat. This helps extend the shelf life and makes it smoother.
Also, filtration further removes impurities like debris and air bubbles so that the honey stays as a clear liquid for longer. This is merely done for aesthetics reasons.
Some commercial honeys are additionally processed by undergoing ultrafiltration. This process further refines it to make it more transparent and smoother, but it can also remove beneficial nutrients like pollen, enzymes and antioxidants.
Benefits of raw honey
Raw honey contains a wide variety of nutrients, approximately 22 amino acids, 31 different minerals and a wide range of vitamins and enzymes.
What’s most impressive about raw honey is that it contains nearly 30 types of bioactive plant compounds. These are called polyphenols, and they act as antioxidants.
Many studies have linked these antioxidants with impressive health benefits, including reduced inflammation and a lower risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
About Criollo cocoa
