    Ingredients in Spicy Twist Honey

    Relating to its name, this honey is a combination of natural ingredients of the North East that are flavorful and beneficial. The basic ingredients in this honey infusion are:

    Mawsynram Honey- A natural honey that is directly collected from the dense forests of Mawsynram where the flora is in abundance. Our Mawsynram honey is provided to us by our partnered beekeeper, Kong Elvira who hails from Thieddieng village in Mawsynram. This honey is in its purest and raw form and is free from all artificial additives. It has a beautiful golden-brown colour that comes along with a fresh and a sweet citrus flavour. This honey is packed with a wholesome amount of nutrients and provides maximum health benefits.

    Bhut jolokia- A famous chilli from the North-East which is also known as ghost chilli, naga chilli and beb. Considered to be one of the hottest peppers in the planet, topping over a million SHU (Scoville Heat Units) which measures the pungency of the chilli due to the presence of active component capsaicin. It actually held the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s hottest chilli from the year 2007 until 2010. So, you can imagine the level of spiciness it gives out! This chilli is definitely spicy but is filled with an intensely fruity, sweet chilli flavour. In addition to being a common kitchen ingredient in certain Indian households, it has also been used as a remedy for stomach ailments as well as to increase the metabolism.

    Why Does Foaming Occur in Honey Infusions?

    Honey infusion is a combination of herbs and spices with raw honey. This process includes mixing of ingredients together which leads to the formation of bubbles and froth in the honey. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs during the processing and packaging of these honey infusions. 
    When packed in containers, the natural ingredients get infused together and produces a unique and delicious flavour in the honey that gets enhanced with time. The longer you keep your honey-infused, the stronger the flavour will be.

    What Is the Shelf-life of Honey Infusions?

    The flavour of any honey infusion becomes intense with time. It is preferred to use the honey infusion within six months from the manufacturing date because when kept for a longer duration, its taste can become extremely strong which may not be preferred by some.

    How Should Honey Infusions be Stored?

    Although honey is a super-food, it is not a supernatural ingredient. The mixture of herbs and spices in it makes the honey more susceptible to get contaminated with moisture and other unwanted substances.

    To avoid such circumstances, honey infusions should be sealed properly after opening and should be stored in a cool and dry area. Addition of moisture or water to it will make the honey go bad and lead to a fermentation process which gives a sour aftertaste.

    Flavour

    Spicy Twist honey has been created with the intention of experiencing the taste of bhut jolokia is the most convenient way by infusing it with the most versatile ingredient – Honey!

    Our Mawsynram honey gets infused with the famous chilli bhut jolokia which is extremely spicy. It gives the honey a beautiful yellowish-orange tint topped with a single whole bhut jolokia giving it an extremely appealing look. The consistency of this honey is so smooth that it easily dribbles down a spoon and is very clear that you see the chilli powder floating on the honey.

    Once you open the lid, there is an outburst of a sweet, spicy, and fruity aroma that is strong yet absolutely pleasing. The uniqueness of this honey infusion makes you want to try it and the sweet and spicy flavour from the honey and chilli is what makes you want more.

    This infused honey is worth a try! Its uniqueness and the burst of flavours it produces is worthwhile in giving your juices and other dishes a little twist.

  • What are the health benefits of Spicy Twist Honey?
    Raw honey contains most nutrients while its combination with Bhut Jolokia will certainly enhance its taste as well as provide some benefits too. Here are a few health benefits of Spicy twist honey:

    1. Helps in dealing with migraines- Bhut jolokia helps in reducing migraine pain. The capsaicin content in it numbs the brain’s trigeminal nerve (responsible for sensation in the face and motor functions) where some migraines and severe headaches start.
    2. Clears a runny nose- A whiff of capsaicin may help to calm the effects of a runny or stopped-up nose. It triggers the nasal passage and increases the production of mucus and saliva.
    3. Speeds up metabolism- Capsaicin is responsible for sensing a total-body flush and it also increases the rate at which the body heats up when consuming chillies. It activates the sensory neuron called TRPV1, which helps in keeping the body fat from building up and helps in controlling the appetite. Honey, on the other hand, is known to help burn out body fats even while sleeping. The combination of these metabolism-quickening ingredients might help in losing weight and keeps the body fit.
    4. Helps in scrambling pain signals- Capsaicin present in bhut jolokia triggers a sensation (sends a signal) to the nerve cells in the brain that normally deals with pain to avoid the sensation of pain instead focuses on the spiciness of the chilli. It tricks the brain in such a way that a person forgets the pain and focuses more on the hot sensation from the chilli. This property helps in controlling pain.
    5. Helps in reducing inflammation- Honey along with capsaicin in bhut jolokia has natural anti-inflammatory compounds that help the body fight against foreign substances. It helps in reducing cell damage and also prevents inflammation by reducing the activity of cell-signalling. Without inflammation in the body, bacteria and germs can easily take over the body and lead to chronic diseases. Therefore, whatever substance that can help in treating chronic inflammation is of utmost importance. This anti-inflammatory property of this infusion soothes arthritis and reduces discomfort and pain.
    6. May help fights rare diseases- Some studies have stated that capsaicin may help in killing cells that are linked to more than forty types of cancers. This spicy chemical helps in changing the linkage of some genes with cancer cells and may even terminate them from growing or multiplying. This property of capsaicin may help in fighting rare diseases such as cancer.
    7. Boosts energy- Honey is a good source of carbohydrates which makes it better than glucose, sugar, or water in boosting the energy. It helps in maintaining glycogen (helps in storing energy) levels and helps in improving recovery time as compared to other sweeteners. But Jolokia is also packed with major components such as vitamin A, B, C and E. The capsaicin content in it also acts as antioxidants that protect the cells from getting damaged.
    8. Reduces snacking habits- The spiciness of the chilli helps in scorching the snacking habit but consuming it at a higher quantity can lead to belly pain, nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting or even burning sensation of the stomach. It is safe to consume a small quantity of this infusion to help deal with snacking scenes.
    9. Nutritious- Honey contains various nutrients in it that makes it a healthy addition to your diet. The nutrition in it varies with the environments and depends on the types of flowers the bees collect their nectar from. But it still contains healthy compounds such as amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins in it. Honey also contains natural sugars which makes it a healthier option than sugar.
    10. A good source of antioxidants- Both honey and bhut jolokia contains many phytoconstituents that act as antioxidants. These antioxidants help in protecting the cells of the body from getting damaged. Consuming antioxidant-rich foods may help in reducing the risk of rare diseases and helps in boosting immunity.
