Wedderspoon Organic Wild Dandelion Honey is sourced from the pastoral grazing country of the remote mountainous regions of New Zealand's South Island, this high quality, thick honey is harvested from uncultivated dandelions.
Dandelion was revered by the ancients in China, Tibet and India as a medicinal herb renowned for its powerful broad spectrum healing properties. The tradition still carries to this day. Wedderspoon Organic 100% Raw Organic Wild Dandelion Honey is free of chemicals, preservatives, antibiotics, additives, pesticides and GMOs. Tantalize your taste buds by enjoying this delectable honey in your tea or on fresh or cooked fruits, toast, biscuits, wafers, crackers or with soft, ripened cheeses.
Young dandelion leaves make an excellent salad often enjoyed in Europe and are rich in Vitamin A, K and calcium. From a therapeutic point of view, dandelions and dandelion honey help the liver and kidneys to do their work and keep the bowels in a healthy condition, particularly important to dyspeptics as it does not cause wakefulness.
Wedderspoon is committed to providing ethical, premium organically certified Manuka honey and other raw and rare specialty New Zealand honeys.
Experts agree it is a good idea to load up on whole foods that contain live enzymes. Organic Raw Unpasteurized Manuka Honey and other products from Wedderspoon offer this opportunity, on top of being considered one of nature's top superfoods!
You can rest assured that products contain only unpasteurized honey that has not been blended or mixed with other honeys. Only certified organic can guarantee this as honey board regulations in Canada and the USA do not regulate the import of honey for these major components. The Wedderspoon line is also GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) FREE.
Supporting organic honey means you are not supporting conventional commercial pesticide crops and are looking for something more ethical for a healthier planet. It always comes full-circle: taking care of the bees to take care of our bodies, also takes care of the planet we live on.
Supporting organic bees also means fighting the Bee Colony Collapse Disorder and sick bees. Wedderspoon is a strong advocate against conventional practices. Wedderspoon's bees are not fed white refined sugar like conventional bees and are not treated with any antibiotics but with organic honey, helping the immune system of the bees and not denaturing the lives of those hard workers.
The beehives are not sprayed or managed with any pesticides. Wedderspoon tests against a wide variety of chemicals found commonly throughout New Zealand including 250 different chemicals. This is neither mandatory for conventional Manuka products nor certified by a third-party company.
Organic beekeeping also means all the natural bee enzymes are still live and intact in the products.
