Diabetes is a major lifestyle disease in Kerala and many studies claim that Kerala is the diabetes capital of India, with a prevalence of diabetes as high as 20% - more than double the national average of 8%.
As consumers in Kerala are becoming more and more health conscious, they are increasingly moving towards healthy alternatives like raw honey and jaggery instead of artificial and processed sweeteners.
In fact, the pandemic made all of us realise the importance of immunity and honey became everyone’s favourite as an immunity booster.
Unlike the commercially honey available in normal big-time supermarkets, raw unprocessed honey is high on amino acids, vitamins minerals and antioxidants and that is the reason raw honey is considered to be antibacterial and antioxidant.
Having realised this, we at teORA Wellness Grocery, have included many flavours of raw unprocessed honey in our health food store in Kochi and consumers can make wiser choices, rather than consuming sugar.
Facts about honey:
1. To produce about 1 kg of raw honey, 1 million flowers and 50000 bee flights are required.
2. Raw honey starts as a flower nectar collected by bees, which gets broken down into simple sugars, when stored inside the honeycomb.
3. Honey bees make more honey than its colony needs and this excess honey is harvested and bottled by beekeepers.
4. Each beehive can produce approximately 20kg of honey per year.
5. Honey colour differs from region to region and season to season, based on many natural factors.

As the name suggests, raw honey is the honey, ‘as it exists in the beehive’ and there is no processing involved.

2. Raw honey does not involved any kind of pasteurization or heating.
3. Raw honey is simply filtered using a clean cloth and steel mesh to remove the pollen
