Honey Q&A

1. Where are our jarrah honey, natural honey, meditree honey and wild honey from?
Our jarrah honey, natural honey, meditree honey and wild honey are all collected from Western Australia virgin forest floras, It has no GM (Genetically Modified) risks, is unprocessed and taken straight from beehives. 

2. Why our jarrah honey, natural honey, meditree honey and wild honey are all special?
Jarrah honey, natural honey, meditree honey and wild honey are all bottled using cold filling techniques that retain the maximum active properties and natural nutrition in the honey. Our Low GI natural honey, high antimicrobial and antioxidants rich honey are suitable for customers different needs and is fit to the growing market niche of discerning customers, both local and international.

3. What is the taste and functions of jarrah honey?

Jarrah honey tastes like caramel. It contains very high level of natural antibacterial properties, which strong bactericidal capabilities. ​Over a long period of research and study, the entity of those honeys are confirmed as a world class medical healing honey by a group of scientists from Department of Agriculture and Food of Western Australia.

4. What is the taste and function of meditree honey?
MediTree honey tastes like brown sugar, some of it seems to have dried longan fruit aftertaste. The honey contain very high level of natural antioxidants and antibacterial properties, which has anti-aging effects and strong bactericidal capabilities. ​It has been used by Western Australian indigenous people over thousands years as healing medicine. 

5. What is the taste and function of natural honey?
Natural honey has very smooth texture in mouth, it sweet and savory. The honey is Low glycemic index, had been tested by an low GI research centre in Australia on a group of people and showed low blood sugar level after conuming it. Low GI natural honey is a favourable sweetner for people love low GI foods.

6. What is the taste and function of wild honey?
Wild honey has a changing taste according to different bee sites and environment, sometimes the taste is strong like creamy toffee or brown sugar, and some season the taste is light and sweet due to it's nature creation. The honey has significant prebiotic potential that is healty for digestive system and is an ideal energy booster.
7. What is Unified Antioxidants Factor (UAF) in Honey?
The Unified Antioxidants Factor UAF® is an antioxidant index system to make it easier for buyers of Australian honey products to see the level of antioxidant activity in their honey. Initially proposed by OneFood Honey, antioxdant activity in honey is being further researched by the Government-supported Collaborative Research Centre for Honey Bee Products (http://www.crchoneybeeproducts.com) to support the newly formed Australia UAF Organisation Inc.

UAF® represents the level of antioxidants in honey through the measurement of the honey to absorb free radicals using Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) or Ferric Reducing Antioxidant Power (FRAP). An accredited independent food science laboratory is used to perform the assays, and the resutls are presented in a simplified UAF® index system. The scale ranges from 0 - 1000, with 1000 being the highest antioxidant activity. To date, honeys have been found and offered to you at UAF® 50 - 800. The search for other high UAF® honeys is continuing. 

8. What are Antioxidants? Why we need UAF rich Honey?
To understand antioxidants, we need to know "free radicals". Free radical are generated by our body as a result from either mormal metabolic processes or from external causes such as alcohol, smoke, pesticides and air pollutants. If free radicals overwhelm our body's ability to handle, then oxidative stress is forming over time which can bring illnesses such as heart disease, liver problem and a number of cancers. Antioxidants help our body to fight free radical that lead to oxidation and cell damage, and potentially lead to ageing and diseases. Antioxidants are compounds that protect body cells agaist free radical damage. Therefore, having UAF rich honey is one of food options to gain natural antioxidants for our body.
 
9. What is antimicrobial and antioxidants Honey?
Where are these mysterious enzymes substance coming from? According to the study by University of Western Australia and Western Australian Department of Agriculture and Food, some of eucalyptus tree flowers can produce dozen of enzymatic contents; honeybees collect these enzymes-containing nectars and bring them back to beehives for brewing and turning them to honey, then the honey carries all these substances which having antimicrobial and antioxidants properties.

10. What is Total Activity (TA) in Honey?Why TA is no longer marked on labels?
Level of activities at major enzymes in honey are identified and measured by scientists which resulting an overall data of activity index of honey activity as total activity referring as “TA”. The larger number represents the stronger antibacterial level of the honey. However, due to the incosistency of tatal activity (TA) as a measurement system is an issue that has puzzled the honey industry and the impending labelling laws coming into effect this year, laboratory testig term "TA" will no longer to be appeared on honey labels.
