Raw Acacia Honey is harvested in areas abundant in the yellow locust flower, and the colour could be pure white
or a very pale yellow, depending on the exact locust species and pollen composition.
One thing to note about raw acacia honey however, and arguably one of the reasons that it remains so popular
with the masses, is that it can take a very prolonged time to crystallise – often as long as two years.
Despite this high content of fructose, Raw Acacia honey has a distinctive, delicately sweet flavour with a hint
of zesty freshness on the finish. Domination of fructose over glucose, places raw acacia honey low on the GI index,
and makes it worth trying for diabetics or anybody looking to lower their sugar intake.
This delightful honey is also absorbed quickly into the body without placing a great deal of pressure on the pancreas,
so it will not result in a rapid and sudden release of sugar that leads to an artificial burst of energy followed by a headache
and 'sugar crash' several hours after consumption. It's hugely popular as a sweetening agent for drinks, but bear in mind
that no honey should be mixed with a hot drink such as tea or coffee if you are hoping to reap the associated health benefits.
This is important to note, as raw acacia honey is loaded with goodness.
