Scottish Heather Honey
"Our Scottish Heather Honey comes from our own apiary at the Glen Eagles Hotel, Falkland Estate and in the Scottish Borders.
It is rich in taste and very aromatic. Not to mention it’s full of pollen for those who have allergies and need a helping hand in springtime!" Edinburgh Honey Co
"Scottish Heather Honey has an unusual texture, due to its thixotropic characteristic, it is a jelly until stirred, when it becomes a syrup like other honey, and then it turns back once left alone. Both heather (Calluna vulgaris) and manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) honeys are described as thixotropic. This means that they are gel-like (extremely viscous) when standing still, but they can turn liquid when agitated or stirred.
The viscosity of heather honey is so high that makes the extraction of the honey from the comb very difficult. That’s why, this honey is extracted by pressure (instead of centrifugation), which destroys the combs.
Scottish heather honey was recently found to contain significantly high levels of manganese, up to 10x that of its competitors, including the well-loved Mankuna, making it the second richest source in the world! Manganese is an essential trace-mineral, with powerful antioxidant properties as well as being crucial to metabolism, liver function and bone formation. In regards to metabolism, manganese plays a vital role in regulation of insulin secretion; supporting the storage and utilisation of carbohydrates and dietary fats. In bone health, manganese activates several enzymes necessary for the formation of healthy cartilage and bone. Finally in the liver, manganese facilitates the urea cycle; the center of the body’s natural detoxification process." Edinburgh Honey Co
