This area is famous for its Sidr Forest and our honeycombs are sourced naturally and sustainably. Yemeni Sidr Honeycombs are a real delicacy for honey lovers.
Honey and its comb are edible and offer numerous health benefits, such as fighting infections and improving heart health. Honeycomb may also boost liver function and serve as a sugar alternative for people with diabetes.
Why is Honeycomb Good for You?
From minerals to a protected liver, honeycomb may nourish your body, support your immune system and more.
Loaded with Minerals
Honeycomb is comprised of minerals, vitamins, pollen, and protein. When you go to town on honeycomb, it can deliver minerals like:
- Sodium Chloride
The specific mineral amounts vary based on the honey itself, as different flora will produce different levels.
Get Gut Healthy
It’s easy to forget how important it is to have a healthy gut. Sometimes, it’s only once we have indigestion that we think about treating our belly right. Some studies show that honey functions as a prebiotic—food for “good bug” probiotics—which can help support gut health.
In addition to helping us beat indigestion and to feel good, there is something else raw honey may bring to the mix. Raw honey helps to establish a healthy alkaline balance. This means that you have a healthy pH and ideal level acidity. This is important because, in our modern lifestyle, our stomach acid can easily be unbalanced. It’s a problem if the pH is off because healthy cells survive best in an alkaline environment - not an acidic one.
Anytime you eat or drink something, it affects your pH. It ups acidity or lowers it. The big issue is that most foods in popular culture up acidity. Coffee. Processed foods. Whole grains. These all tend to up acidity and draw away from that alkaline. It’s beyond heartburn. It’s even suspected that too much acid can lead to issues with muscles and bones.
Raw honey helps to maintain that healthy level of pH.
Studies have shown a reduction of free radicals by eating raw honey.
Protect the Liver
Studies have shown eating honey can help support your liver. According to a study published on NCBI, honey can help balance the liver and neutralize toxins. This is because problems with the liver are often rooted in oxidative damage. Honey’s antioxidants such as phenolics and peptides enter the picture and help to protect the liver. Additionally, honey has a lower glycemic index than processed sugar or high-fructose sugar, making it a better option for sugar-sensitive people.
Chew On It
Swap your gum for beeswax—really! After eating, chewing honeycomb may help with:
- Oral health, providing relief from toothaches and helping to cleanse gums
- Neck and even jaw (yes jaw!) tension
- A sore throat, bronchitis and even pneumonia
Experts believe that the antibacterial benefits of honey are the main reason chewing the wax is so healthy. Even though some feel a mere few minutes of chewing can help, other sources recommend chewing the honey for as long as possible—up to 10 minutes.
Honeycomb Holds Royal Jelly, Too!
The royal jelly is a white, jelly-like secretion that comes from those hard working worker bees. Consumed mostly by the queen bee, it is her superfood. So, in the bee world, it is quite literally for royalty.
It is not only packed with benefits for bees but humans, as well. It is an anti-inflammatory and carries anti-bacterial properties. These properties and others can make it ideal for:
- Asthma and allergies, such as hay fever
- Disorders, such as skin disorders and pancreatitis
- Overall health and wellness
Thought to help with overall health and wellness, it can help in maintaining a healthy immune system and may even have anti-aging properties. This is why some people apply it to their skin.
Question: How do you tell that Sidr Honey is from Sidr Flowers?
Answer: Each honey contains unique flower pollen. We check our batches of honey under a high strength microscope to check for Sidr Pollen. If a batch of honey contains more than 80% Pollen of Sidr Flower Pollen, it is labelled as Sidr Honey. This experiment is called Pollen Analyses. Each flower of honey (for example, Acacia Honey, Orange Blossom Honey, Robinia Honey, etc.) goes through Pollen Analyses. This is one experiment part of 14 different experiments we do to check the purity and authenticity of our honey.
Honey is harvested by our trained and certified beekeepers under our supervision and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of International Standards.
We are Dubai Food Muncipality's approved brand.
Once harvested, honey samples are sent to Honey Research Institute operating under NARC.
A second batch of samples is sent to our internal laboratory which is registered with PSQC. In our state of the art laboratory, we check honey of adulteration through various tests, such as:
- Electrical Conductivity
- Ash Test at 600C
- Thermal Stability Test
- Glucose and Fructose Test
- Pollen Density Test
- HMF Test
- Sucrose Adulteration Test
We carry out these tests and prepare reports as per the SOPs of Quality Services International (Germany) requirements. Our test reports are accepted worldwide for an accuracy up to 3 decimal places.
Before packaging, we randomly send our batches to Quality Services International (Germany) Laboratory and National Food Lab (UAE).
We also spend a lot of time, effort and resources towards training and development of our beekeepers to International Standards. All our beekeepers are certified from our training academy. This is why, each time you order, we guarantee you a quality which is second to none.
