Why Virgin HoneyComb?

 

Honeybees make beeswax to build their home made of beeswax comb. They store the nectar they gather from flowers in this honeycomb. Freshly made beeswax is almost white, and turns yellow from particles it absorbs from honey and pollen. After a long time of use, the wax slowly turns brown and eventually black, as it absorbs more and more particles.

The older the wax gets, the less well it absorbs any further particles and impurities. Eventually some components actually dilute back into the honey. Virgin beeswax is completely clean because it is brand-new, hence it is  the most efficient at absorbing possible impurities. It is like a fresh filter sucking impurities from the nectar. Therefore the purest and best tasting honey comes from freshly built, virgin wax comb. Even though we have one of the cleanest environments in the world, we make double sure our honey is as clean as can be, therefore we use fresh wax comb exclusively.

Fresh wax is valuable 

Real, unadulterated beeswax is a highly valued commodity. Traditionally beekeepers value ready-built honeycomb and use it for as along as possible. Normally, beekeepers give empty honey comb to the bees to fill up again after extracting the honey. This saves the bees a lot of work and notably increases the honey harvest, because the bees need a lot of nectar to create new wax.

At Luonnon KULTA, we let the bees build fresh wax every year, and we do not re-use old honeycomb. Not only does this make the honey better, but it also keeps our bees healthier. Therefore we do not need to use any pharmaceuticals in out hives. 

Less is better

Luonnon KULTA Honey is exceptional because it is made exclusively from honey in freshly built wax comb. We do this because it is important to us that we create the purest and highest quality product. Not reusing old honeycomb significantly diminishes our honey harvest, but we happily sacrifice quantity to increase quality. This sets Luonnon KULTA Virgin Honey apart from the rest.

Luonnon KULTA Virgin Honey is like comb honey in a jar. Normally the only way to get honey from freshly built comb is in the form of comb honey, that is honey that is still in the waxcomb, not in a jar. Luonnon KULTA Virgin Honey combines the high quality of fresh comb honey with the convenience of extracted honey in a beautiful glass jar.
