Nutritional Information

Natural honey minerals

Why do you love honey? Because it’s delicious, right? But it’s so much more than that – for many of us, the nutritional value and health benefits are what we’re really after.

Have you tried local honey for your hay fever, allergies, or other reactions to the outdoors? Honey carries pollen that, when ingested, can act as a vaccination against the body’s inflammatory reaction to pollen exposure.

But here’s the important part: You have to ingest the pollens that are causing your allergies. The question is, how do you know whether the honey you’re buying contains the actual pollens you’re struggling with?

That’s why every variety of Gold Standard Honey is professionally analyzed at the Pollen Research Laboratory at Texas A&M to reveal the exact makeup of pollens in our honey, as well as the diverse mineral content.
