What is it?

Natural honey in the comb is a product of natural beekeeping; this type of beekeeping aims to safeguard the well-being of bees as the main pollinators. To achieve this noble objective, natural beekeeping avoids nomadism and the use of industrially produced wax sheets, ensuring that bees have enough reserves for their sustenance instead of relying on frequent nutritional substitutes.

Natural comb honey means that bees deposit honey (as well as pollen) in a comb that they themselves have constructed. The comb is therefore a natural product consisting of a series of hexagonal cells made of beeswax, typically containing raw honey. The comb is rich in carbohydrates, antioxidants, and traces of many other nutrients; as such, natural comb honey is edible. When consuming it, along with the honey and pollen inside, the experience is akin to chewing fragrant and sweet gum.

Raw honey, in addition to the nutrients described above, provides small amounts of proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Furthermore, since it is not processed in any way, it contains enzymes like glucose oxidase, which give natural honey antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Its texture, when tasted, tends to have a thicker consistency compared to filtered honey.
