Is honey just a sweet treat?

Honey is a great alternative sweetener to sugar, but did you know there is a lot more to this delicious nectar than just taste? Honey has been used for centuries for both its nutritional value and its therapeutic properties. Different floral sources provide different flavours and properties. Recent studies have been focused on honeys with high antibacterial properties and have discovered that some also have other wonderful properties.

These include Karri honey - the rare Jewel of the southwest; Marri honey – from the Aboriginal medicinal red gum tree; and the all rounder Jarrah honeyliquid gold or healing honey.
