Buckwheat honey is darker than other honeys, and has a rich, full flavor reminiscent of Black-strap molasses. Rich in iron and high in antioxidants. This delicious honey may help soothe coughs, and sore throats.
As a general rule, darker honeys tend to be higher in antioxidant compounds than lighter ones. Because of this characteristic, darker honeys also tend to be higher in mineral content on average, as compared to lighter honeys.
The buckwheat plant is an excellent honey source, sometimes planted by beekeepers specifically for honey production. The blossoms are rich in nectar and blooming can continue into the fall.
Unfiltered and raw (not heated over 115 ˚F) our honey still contains traces of Pollen and Propolis, and has no additives.
