Our Ivy Honey is

  • 100% Irish sourced
  • 100% natural
  • Not pasteurised*
  • Lightly strained
 

*Honey has a high concentration of natural sugars and over time these sugars want to form crystals, in a process called granulation. This is perfectly natural and indicates a high quality product. The time it takes for honey to crystallise depends on two things; the plant source of the honey & the amount of heating it endures. Ivy honey has the ability to crystallise very rapidly (about 1-2 weeks). At BeeActiv we take the time to allow our honey to set and then we cream it to a smooth texture; perfect for spreading or mixing in your favourite food. This gives it a light colouration and maintains its texture.  


Raw ivy honey is intense in flavour but remains pure to the nature of it’s origin. It’s a honey that stays with you & lingers in your mouth for quite some time without overpowering.
