Raw Wildflower Honey (150g)
Our premium pure wildflower raw honey is extracted, unblended, and cold-filtered to help preserve the natural proteins, vitamins, phytonutrients, minerals, and useful enzymes. Our hives are sited in carefully picked wildflower meadows during the summer months to ensure that the bees can produce the best raw honey.
Ingredients and Flavour
Zizira Lakadong Turmeric consists of pure, unadulterated Lakadong turmeric powder sourced from Lakadong, Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. Lakadong turmeric is bright yellowish-orange in colour. It is fresh with a strong warm flavour filled with a pleasant earthy aroma that makes it one of the finest turmeric varieties in the world.
Ing Makhir Ginger
Zizira’s Ing Makhir Ginger is a pale yellow coloured powder with a very strong taste and a hot aromatic flavour. The chemical compounds, 6-shogaol, zingiberene, and zingerone make the ginger hot and peppery. Rich in vitamin C and magnesium, this ginger variety has many health benefits.
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 rich flavour with a distinct floral undertone that lingers in your taste buds.
