Honey is sticky, sweet—and delicious. Although honey may be high in sugar, it also contains antioxidants that help fight free radicals (such as phenolic acids and flavonoids). Honey is also antibacterial, which may aid in wound healing and help soothe a sore throat. One study calls honey “the most appreciated and valued natural introduced to humankind since ancient times,” making this a must-have ingredient for any pantry.
The History of Bloom Honey
Bloom Honey’s president, David Jefferson, spent childhood summers hiking and exploring. After studying ecological economics and sustainable development in college, Jefferson worked as a part of a picking crew on an organic blueberry farm in Maine, which helped spur a passion for healthy, whole foods. Jefferson and his father, Dr. Ed Jefferson, began keeping honey bees 10 years ago and now have 1,000 beehives that are field managed by a fourth-generation beekeeper.
Bloom Honey Company Mission
Making pure, raw honey is this brand’s mission, and Bloom sources its nectar straight from the hive. Many conventional honey sold in grocery stores are often pasteurized, filtered, and overheated, which means fewer nutrients and less distinct flavor—but not Bloom. This brand is dedicated to sustainable beekeeping practices and donates to Project Apis m., a nonprofit organization researching colony collapse.
Benefits of Bloom Honey
In addition to being a member of the California State Beekeepers Association, American Bee Federation, and American Honey Producers Association, Bloom Honey is also a member of True Source Certified, an organization made up of brands who certify that 100 percent of the honey they produce is sourced from the United States.
Bloom Honey is:
Filled with antioxidants, phytonutrients, live digestive enzymes, local pollens, propolis, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, prebiotics, and probiotics
Never pasteurized or filtered
Heated enough to facilitate bottling, but never high enough to degrade the quality; retaining natural pollen, grains, propolis, and nutrients
