Produced by the Trigona bees a.k.a Stingless bees, this honey is naturally fermented and naturally sour – nothing added.
These bees are usually found in the tropical regions, they have stingers but they are too small to be effective. They usually nest in open tree cavities, rock crevices, or underground openings. The stingless bee honey is stored in resin (propolis)pots, in a bacterial free(99.9%) condition, it starts to ferment hence creating a special tangy taste. It is full of natural enzymes and amino acids.
Stingless bee honey is known as Mother Medicine and there are an increasing number of traditional practitioners and researchers suggesting its consumption. What makes stingless bee honey stand out is the fact that it is far more nutritious than regular honey. Stingless bees are tinier in size compared to regular bees and can therefore extract nectar deep within a flower’s space. The result is honey that contains more vitamins and minerals. Being adopted in traditional medicine in Central and South America, and Africa, stingless bee honey has broad-spectrum antibacterial activity and can play a role as a medicinal agent as well.
