small bee honey

There are many species, some of them are small, some larger. Apis floera & Apis andreniformis are the small bee or dwarf honey (Giant honey bee are known as Apis dorsata). It is also called as dwarf honey. These honey bees origin are eastern tropical Africa and spread from there to Europe and eastwards into Asia. These stingers are too short to penetrate the mammal’s skin and that’s why mostly it is known as the stingless honey bee.

Apis floera & Apis andreniformis can produce around 350 grams to 1 kg honey in a year. Because of the less production of quantity, the prices are usually very high in the market. Apis floera (small bee) have small colonies compare to Apis Dorsata (giant bee). They have fewer numbers of defensive workers which makes them more venerable to the predators.

Honey that produces by Apis floera (small bee) has been mostly used in traditional medicine. That is why it has gained popularity and considered as superior in quality. Because of the presence of a higher amount of glucose oxidase (the enzyme responsible for its antibiotic activity) has scientifically proven its medical value.

My Honey Cares About there Customers

My Honey is 100% raw, natural and cold processed or cold extracted honey. Cold extraction of honey is the keys to all honey benefits. My Honey is never commercially processed because My Honey always cares about you.

There are some surprising facts about honey, many of us don’t even know about.

Honey is heated to a substaintial centigrade and therefore honey lost its substaintional health benefits.

Why is honey heated in the first place?

There are two main reasons, first most commercially sold honey has probably been heated substantially (perhaps up to 165F – 73,89ºC). It melts the crystal, separates the impurities and kills every unsafe bacteria. Yes! it affects the honey – Makes the flavor mild a bit and color lighter a bit. Second, In the case of tree honey, it is possible the seller actually, heat the honey in order to separate the honey from the beeswax. The honeycomb is probably heated around 145F – 62,78ºC because, the wax is melted and float on the top for easy separation besides that if honey seller cold press the comb, honey will be extracted in less amount compare to heat extraction. This heating is strong and effects the honey. This process of extraction is known as heat extraction.

What is the cold extracted honey?

Cold extracted honey is the process of extracting from the honeycomb without destroying the honeycomb, therefore, this process is only applied in case of farming honey. In farming honey, the comb is held in a wooden frame. A drum or container is designed to hold multiple of these honeycomb frame. The drum spins wooden frame of honey (either using an electric motor or using a manual hand machine) flinging the honey out, therefore wax stays intact with the comb, it is reused by the bees and most importantly all the health benefits stay in the Honey.
