Pure Raw Buckwheat Honey from certified organic buckwheat fields of Northern Ontario, Canada. Buckwheat honey has a strong aroma of malt and molasses. It is rich in polyphenol antioxidants which gives its dark colour.
Clinical studies have shown buckwheat honey to be an effective remedy for cough and sore throat. Buckwheat honey has the highest levels of antioxidants of any honey. Its antimicrobial activities are found to be higher than manuka honey.
Our buckwheat honey is a dark monofloral honey made by bees from the nectar of buckwheat flower. Buckwheat is culinarily used in place of wheat, but buckwheat isn't a type of grass, and is not related to wheat. It is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Therefore, buckwheat is also free of gluten.
Buckwheat flowers have dark nectar, even though its petals are white, which produces its rich dark color of the honey. This dark color is also the sign of its high level of antioxidants present in the honey. We pride ourselves in the purity of our buckwheat honey by placing the beehives in the middle of large buckwheat fields, and thus producing much darker honey than you would typically see on the market.
One study from University of Illinois found buckwheat honey with tea increased antioxidants levels in the body. And a meta-study on honey showed that it has the highest levels of antioxidants among all types of honey.
Honey is well known to help protect your skin and to hydrate your skin. Which is why we've formulated our own face mask with our buckwheat honey!

This natural raw buckwheat honey has a unique taste. As the description states, you either love it or hate it. At first, my family and I did not like this taste at all. But with time, I got used to the taste and I'm fine with it. My husband and son on the otherhand still does not like it and say that it reminds them of a horse smell. It is very sweet and it's best mixed into a strong herbal tea. I would give it 4 stars but because my son and husband does not like the taste, I'm giving it 3 stars.
I completely understand. The taste is definitely unique. Thank you for your review :)
