NATIVE BEE HONEY
One of the rarest honeys in the world.
Our unadulterated Native Bee Honey tastes divine and has kept its beneficial properties intact.
This small vial is oozing with flavour and is a bounty of health benefits.
Native Bee Honey has a distinct flavour, texture and high antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Bursting with a sweet and tangy flavour your tastebuds will be dancing to eucalyptus and lemon infusion.
You’ll notice Hive Haven Native Bee Honey has a cloudy appearance. This is a very good sign. It means there is high Propolis content. It’s the high Propolis that provides the antimicrobial, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory goodness.
The Hive Haven bees work hard to bring us their pure and rare Native Bee Honey. Hive Haven is based in the heart of the World Heritage listed Glass House Mountains on the Sunshine
Coast, Queensland, Australia.
Each hive produces only about 1kg a year, making this one of the rarest honey varieties in the world.
NATIVE BEE HONEY
At Hive Haven we respect our bees and honour their honey through gentle harvesting and processing methods. Honey is removed from the food grade honey cartridge through cold extraction which is a slow but gentle process.
Australian native bee’s that create this honey are quite different from the average honey bee imported from Europe in the early 1800’s. Our tiny Australian native bee shared the land with dinosaurs, it was Australia’s very first pollinator. It has evolved into a powerful species that can impact our existence on the planet, however it is a threatened species. We are so fortunate that the Australian native bee has been identified an effective pollinator of our food crops but these precious critters need our help.
Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders have used stingless native bee honey as a food and medicine source for tens of thousands of years.

Native Australian honey contains a rare and naturally occurring sugar profile that is different from other honey’s. It’s called ‘trehalulose’ and it has a substantially lower Glycemic Index (GI) than regular honey. The lower GI means diabetics don’t experience the spike in blood sugar caused by glucose and fructose. Trehalulose is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream. University of Queensland, organic chemist Associate Professor Mary Fletcher and her team of researchers, identified specific bioactive components in stingless bee honey, providing “concrete evidence” that supports the health benefits of this product. How does our honey obtain these benefits? Well, it’s probably because native bee honey is stored in and infused with stingless ‘native’ bee propolis, or ‘bee glue’. This ‘glue’ has been shown by numerous researchers to have many valuable healing and biomedical properties, including antibacterial properties comparable with medical-grade Manuka honey.
