NECTAR SOURCE: Ajwain Flowers.
CONSISTENCY: Smooth, moderately runny.
COLOUR: Light golden.
TASTE: Pleasant aroma with sweet herbal notes.
PROPERTIES: Ajwain Honey is high in anti-fungal, antioxidant and antimicrobial activity, therefore it is an instant remedy for a stomachache. If taken with warm water, it is very effective in treating recurrent cold, indigestion and stomach acidity.
Ajwain honey is produced by the honey bees which collect nectar from the Ajwain (or Bishop’s weed) flowers.This light golden coloured honey is harvested from the interiors of Waziristan hills and has a mild herbal sweet flavour.
Ajwain flowers grow wild and uncultivated in the North - West frontier of Pakistan and they blossom in early spring. During this time, the honey produced by honey bees is called Ajwain Honey because bees take their primary nectar from Ajwain flowers.
It is a very unique and rare honey, harvested directly by our trained and certified beekeepers.
Our honey is raw and cold-extracted. This means that honey is taken from the hives with no heat applied. Applying heat makes honey runnier and kills off the good enzymes.
Once extracted, honey is not filtered using extra thick mesh wire. No industrial process is used for honey filtration.We use a special very old fashioned bottler to place the thick, candying honey into sterilised glass jars. This way, the honey stays as natural as we can get it.
There is no use of pesticides in the surrounding areas so please be assured that this honey has come from the highest quality of organic nectar of the Ajwain flower.
Please note that since the honey is raw and unprocessed, it may contain beeswax, royal jelly,
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.
