  • Zizira's Wildflower honey (multiflora honey) is pure and raw which is obtained from the sun-soaked pollen and nectar collected by bees in the summer months. It is directly sourced from different beekeepers of Thad village, Tynnai village and Wahkhen village in Meghalaya. Wildflowers provide bees with an excellent source of both pollen and nectar.

    Meghalaya is home to many floras, supplying pollen and nectar. The rainfall and cool climatic conditions also affect the flowers growing every season which gives the honey a unique identity.

    Our honey is in the pure and raw form which may undergo a crystallization process with time and with a change in temperature.

    What is Multiflora Honey?

    Multiflora honey is a mixture of honey obtained from different floral sources. It contains all the essential components like vitamins, minerals and natural enzymes in it. With every scoop of this honey, you are sure to discover subtle hints of multiple scents.

    Why Does Pure Raw Honey Undergo Crystallization Process?

    If your honey bottle is solidified or has a creamy texture. It means you are witnessing a natural process called “Crystallization” which is perfectly normal for raw and pure honey.
    It is a natural and uncontrolled process that happens when the glucose (or sugar content) in honey loses water and takes the form of crystals which is due to change in temperature. Other kinds of honey that are available in the market undergo a heating process known as pasteurization to maintain the consistency of the honey. This method can make it stay liquified for a long period, but it reduces the nutrients in it. So, observing a sign of crystallization in your honey indicates that it is not processed and is raw.

    Phases of crystallization:

    The different phases of crystallization of raw and pure honey at room temperature (20° C -22° C) are as follows.

    • Just after its filling- The honey has a warm, smooth and drippy consistency with a clear golden-brown colour.
    • After a week- The colour of the honey gets a little darker and its consistency becomes thick and sticky.
    • After two weeks- During the second week, the honey tends to attain a dull brown colour and becomes thick and this is when it starts crystallizing.
    • After 3 weeks- During the third week, you can actually see the signs of crystallization in your bottle. The colour of the honey becomes a lighter shade of brown with some white formation on it. The honey gets really thick with a semisolid texture.
    • After 4 weeks- You will really observe the difference during this week. The honey attains a light brown colour with some white tints. The texture becomes very thick, but you will still see some liquid in it.
    • After 6 weeks- During this phase, the honey turns into a creamy texture with an off-white colour. The consistency becomes extremely thick and it will not have a flow.
    • After 7 weeks- The honey becomes completely crystallized and will be buff coloured with a solid creamy texture. You will observe crystals like the formation of the natural sugars in it. A spoon will be needed to scoop it as this crystallized honey will not easily flow.

    How to decrystallize honey?

    To turn your crystallized honey into liquid again, a gentle heat technique is followed.

    • Boil water in a container and remove it from heat.
    • Place the jar of honey in it making sure the water does not reach the top of the jar.
    • The honey slowly liquefies. Repeat the process if the honey is still solidified.
    • The jar can also be kept under the sun until it liquefies.

    Note: It is not recommended to microwave raw honey or to put it in direct heat as this may destroy some of its essential nutrients.

    What Is the Shelf-life of Wildflower Honey?

    Wildflower raw honey does not have an expiry date, but the crystallization process can change the colour and taste of the honey which is a natural process that can easily be resolved.

    Flavour

    Derived from the nectar of different flowers, Zizira’s wildflower honey is raw and has a beautiful dark golden colour with a smooth consistency. It has a light; fruity and very rich flavour and you can taste a distinct floral undertone that lingers in your taste buds.

    With the experience of the beekeepers, it is known that wildflower honey harvested during the late spring or early summers has a lighter colour and flavour whereas the one that is harvested in the late summers or early fall is darker and has a stronger flavour or taste. All this is due to the types of flowers that are available during the time the honey is made.

    Wildflower honey just like any other honey varies from year to year. So, each time you receive a new jar of honey you will observe and experience a variation in its colour and flavour.

    What is Special About Wildflower Honey?

    Zizira’s Wildflower Honey is pure, natural, raw, and unprocessed. It has been tested free of artificial additives, colouring agents or preservative. Its colour & flavour depends directly on the source (wildflowers in this case) of the nectar.

    Obtained from the traditional beekeepers of Meghalaya with years of indigenous knowledge, Zizira's pure wildflower honey (multiflora honey) is obtained from sun-soaked pollens and nectar collected by bees in the summer months.

    The beekeepers plant the flowers that the bees love or place the hive in a habitat filled with wildflowers. Hence the flavour of this honey comes from the wildflowers growing naturally around the bee's nest.

    Rainfall and micro-climate affect the flowers growing every season which gives the honey its unique identity. Our Wildflower honey is a clear reflection of the different seasons of Meghalaya which you will experience.

    Local folks from Meghalaya love this honey for its delightful taste and for its multiple all-around uses.

A good product

This was my first purchase from you guys. I usually bought products from Aiwa or honey and spice. Zizira is also a very good option. Received the product on time. There was a moment when I thought there was some problem with the honey and I mailed the customer service. They were quick to respond and suggested that I wait for a few days as the taste of honey changes from time to time. Trust me it actually happened and the honey which slightly had a sour tinge eventually tasted normal after a week. An amazing product and must try. Slightly over priced though... But overall I'm very satisfied.

Honey made in Heaven

Excellent quality. Being a regular user of honey for my early morning drink, I can make out the raw honey from Zizira stands way above what I have been using until now. Though I used to buy organic honey sourced from coorg which is good by itself, but this raw honey from Zizira is miles ahead.
