Gourmet Honey | from the heart of the Western Australian bushland
With the availability of world honeys increasing, it's difficult to know at times exactly what's in the jar. Commercial beekeeping often means that the bees are farmed and put under extreme pressure to produce the sweet nectar, resulting in ever decreasing yield, and the need to supplement the honey making process with extra feeds and artificial sweeteners.
At the Gum Tree Apiary we're proud to offer 100% pure honey, as nature intended. The bees are cared for using traditional methods, and thrive in their natural environments - protected bushlands free from artificial fertilizers or weedkillers.
The benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. Honey is a natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, it is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance and endurance while reducing muscle fatigue in athletes.
The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly, giving an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. Honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar.
