The taste of honey varies according to where it comes from and how carefully it’s made. Our honey is collected by beekeepers in the Victorian Grampians - it's soft and sweet with a buttery richness. 

Go Natural snacks are bound with natural Australian honey. One of the oldest sweeteners on Earth, honey contains almost 600 nutrients - vitamins, minerals, calcium, iron and antioxidants.

 

 

 

How do bees make honey?
 
Honey bees collect pollen and nectar in the spring when most flowers and plants are in bloom. The nectar mixes with the proteins and enzymes produced by the bees, converting the nectar into honey.
 
The bees then drop the honey into the beeswax comb, which are hexagonal cells made of wax produced by the bees, and repeat the process until the combs are full. To prepare for long-term storage, the bees fan their wings to evaporate and thicken the honey. When this is done, the bees cap the honeycomb with wax and move on to the next empty comb, starting all over again.
 
 
Beekeepers gather the honey from the supers in the hive. A super is a section of the hive that contains several frames of honey in honeycombs.
 
Before the supers are carried away from the hive, the bees that are working inside the super must be blown out with a leaf blower. The bees are blown in front of the hive they came out of so they will find their way back to the right hive.
 
 
The supers are then taken to the honey house for extracting. An extractor is a machine that is made to spin the frames of honey until the honey spins out and drips down the sides of the extractor and into a tank of unprocessed honey.
 
The honey must then be cleaned as there are a lot of cappings, the caps that have been scraped off the honeycombs, that float on top of the honey.
