Societe Naturelle honey should not be given to infants below 12 months of age, as it may cause infant botulism which can be fatal for babies. Babies are not able to digest honey as their systems are not built for it yet.
All honey from Societe Naturelle is from bees with stings. stingless bees are not found in India, but are limited to areas where rocks and crevices exist. beekeeping and apiaries do not contain stingless bees. also with wild bees to extract honey , the honeycomb must be cut which kills the larvae of the bees as the whole honeycomb is squeezed to extract the honey. we do not believe in such processes.
Societe Naturelle products are not heated or processed. Pasteurizing or heating honey depletes honey of its nutrient value and all enzymes are destroyed immediately. Raw honey is not filtered and is directly from the beehive into the bottle, therefore it may contain beepollen, beeswax, propolois and honey comb. all elements in bottle are safe for consumption. Further, as honey is not created in factory and is a natural product, the colour, taste and smell may vary from each lot to the next as the same flowers to collect nectar do not remain for the bees.
The different honey types are not flavours, but honey collected from different flowers from different geographical locations across India. Each of the honeys present a unique colour, texture and aroma and are completely natural and not within our control.
Each honey is collected from flowers where only a specific flower is dominant and bees collect nectar from Monofloral source.
The color, flavor and even aroma of honey differs, depending on the nectar of flowers visited by the bees that made it. There are more than 300 unique types of honey available in the United States alone, each originating from a different floral source.
Their shades range from nearly colorless to dark brown, while flavors go from subtle to bold; even the aroma of honey may be reminiscent of the flower. As a general rule, the flavor of light-colored honeys is milder, and the flavor of darker-colored honey is stronger.
Varietal honeys may be best compared to wine in terms of climatic changes. Even the same flower blooming in the same location may produce slightly different nectar from year to year, depending on temperature and rainfall.

All other honey by Societe Naturelle is cold filtered. While Forest honey is collected from the wild forests with multlflora, therefore it may vary in taste, colour, aroma and viscosity from one batch to another. thank you.
