About Jarrah Tree
Jarrah Tree is a magnificent tall timber tree that can grow up to 40 metres in height. It is a slow growing Eucalyptus tree that can live up to 1000 years. It has a brown fissured bark that can withstand intense forest fires and a large green canopy. When it is in full flower, it’s simply magnificent. The flowers are carried on the tips of the branches and the whole tree can be covered in beautiful creamy flowers.
West Australian Jarrah tree (Eucalyptus marginata) is a large tree usually found in the Jarrah forest, which extends from Gingin, north of Perth to as far south as Albany. Jarrah trees are unique to Western Australia.
Jarrah generally flowers every two years, usually from December through to January in the early summer. The nectar produced has a low moisture content and is collected by honeybees.
About Jarrah Honey
Jarrah honey tastes strong with a cinnamon caramel aftertaste. Unlike other honey that’s too sweet, jarrah honey has a pleasantly right amount of sweetness. This is because of the lower amount of glucose and a higher amount of fructose it contains. (Note: Fructose is best-known as one of the world’s safest, most healthy sugar. Fructose tastes better than ordinary sugar and it’s low in glycemic index. It doesn’t require insulin to be metabolized and can be digested and absorbed by human system itself.)
The antimicrobial activity of jarrah honey comes from the enzyme it naturally derives. B Naturals jarrah honey has a TA of 20+. TA stands for Total Activity, Western Australia measuring standard of honey’s antimicrobial activity. The higher the TA, the more active antibacterial strength is and the higher medicinal value it has.
Assuring Quality Control
Every bottle of B Naturals jarrah honey contains and only contains 100% honey, without any additives, flavoring agents or coloring matters.
To assure best quality, every production procedure, including honey collecting, testing, producing and packaging is conducted in Perth, Australia and then exported just as it is. Before being packaged, all the honey must go through strict quality testing. The procedure involves testing the sweetness and appearance of honey and, most importantly, the testing of TA (Total Activity).
Our factory uses auto honey packaging technology and operates under the Australian government hygienic standard. In this way, we are able to avoid pollutions from hand-packaging, and also keep the best of honey’s nutritional value.
