#Review - Tropical Traditions Canadian Raw Honey
I recently won a jar of Tropical Traditions Canadian Raw Honey and let me tell you I am super impressed with this product. First of all I had no idea what the requirements are for a honey to be considered organic and it is a little more strict than one might have thought.
From the Tropical Traditions Website:
"In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, and farm fields treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, a bee’s flying range is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. Finding area which can be certified organic is extremely difficult, which is why there are so few certified organic honeys on the market. Tropical Traditions sources its honey from hives in the wild frontier areas of Canada."
Now I understand why it is made in Canada, we have the land to accommodate such a venture. This honey is incredible. Because it is raw and has never been heated it is solid unlike grocery store honey. So it is filled with nutrients and beneficial enzymes. The resulting flavor is so pure and delicious it is like tasting honey for the very first time. I encourage you all to try it at least once, the benefits to the immune system are extraordinary.
