Buckwheat Honey

by Tommy Van Horn June 14, 2013 1 Comment

Buckwheat honey is a dark-colored honey that is sweet and delicious, with a distinctive spicy-malt flavor and an aftertaste that is reminiscent of molasses. With a range of vitamins and minerals, as well as polyphenols antioxidants, honey made from buckwheat flowers has many health benefits, too. In fact, this type of honey is now recommended for children under six years of age as a healthier alternative to cough syrup.

One of the main health benefits of buckwheat honey is related to the honey’s dark color. It has been established that dark honeys are generally richer in antioxidants than lighter colored honeys. This is because the antioxidants that are present in honey are one of the chemicals which give it color. Honey made from buckwheat flowers contains a type of antioxidant called polyphenol, which gives the honey its distinctive dark copper color.

Darker honeys such as buckwheat also tend to contain more vitamins and minerals in addition to antioxidants. Buckwheat honey is a minor source of eighteen amino acids. This type of honeyalso has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can hasten wound healing and may even reduce scarring.

I have throughly enjoyed your post as a new participant. My wife and I would love to see your operation, as we are beekeepers and gardeners. Great marketing. We are vacationing down here now, and will return with the grandkids in the summer. It will be our 37th year visiting Perdido. I will contact you when we return.
