Honey is as old as history. Ancient and mysterious, the remarkable healing power of honey has long been understood. Used by the ancients to clean and protect wounds, expedite the healing process and eliminate infection and disease, honey is still widely respected.
Unfortunately, the honey found on most grocery store shelves today bear little resemblance to the honey harvested thousands of years ago. Conventional honey is processed, blended and heated, stripping it of many of its vital nutrients. Honey that’s been ultra-filtered and no longer contains pollen, is far from the health promoting powerhouse of its raw, unpasteurized counterpart.
Raw honey – which has not been pasteurized or filtered, and ideally taken directly from the hive – is a treasure chest of nutritional value and medicinal remedies. It contains an abundance of vitamins and minerals and is a natural and powerful medicine, both internally and externally. It can assist in allergy relief, cough suppression, wound healing, and skin health.
Green Bar uses only raw unprocessed honey that keeps all its health benefits intact. We also focus on single-origin, region-centric sourcing, specifically from the Middle Eastern region.Honey reflects the time and place where it was made. Flowers blooming in a specific region and environmental conditions are all reflected in the flavor, viscosity, aromatics, and vibrant color of honey.
