At The Hellenic Deli, we’re committed to supplying only the freshest, most nutritious raw honey. Our Greek raw honey is unfiltered and unpasteurised — for a more complex and satisfying flavour profile.
Through the ages, people have used raw honey for its various health benefits. Straight from the honeycomb, Greek raw honey is packed with essential nutrients. And although it doesn’t go through purification processes such as pasteurisation and filtering, it’s still safe to consume.
The pasteurisation and filtering processes remove many of its most beneficial nutrients. That’s why we only stock the purest raw honey, cultivated in Greece.
The Ancient Greeks and Romans knew that raw honey possessed significant health-related properties. That’s why they used it for cooking and the creation of medicines. The most impressive benefits of raw honey include:
● Antioxidants (for reversing cell damage)
● Antibacterial properties
● Anti-inflammatory properties
● Wound-healing properties
There’s a reason why raw honey is used in many throat and cough remedies — it works! It provides a coating on the throat that soothes pain and reduces irritation. Raw honey has also been shown to alleviate the symptoms of diarrhoea.
Greek raw honey is considered to be one of the best in the world. Bees pollinate specific flowers to make it — giving it unique taste, colour and aroma profiles.
