With Manuka in the headlines again and for all the wrong reasons, now is the time for Ogilvy’s to shout about their Raw Australian Jarrah honey. Overshadowed by the Manuka hype and therefore not as well-known as Manuka, Jarrah’s quality and purity has not been in question.
Ogilvy’s raw super honey, Australian Jarrah honey, is also known as Australia’s healing honey. Nectar is collected from a single species of the Eucalyptus tree (Eucalyptus marginata) unique to Western Australia.
The nectar is collected by honeybees who only fly a maximum radius of 5 miles from the hive, with hives being so deep within the forest their main source of nectar are the flowers from the Jarrah tree.
Jarrah produces a delicious dark, syrupy honey with a caramel taste. It is not as sweet as other honeys due to its low glucose and high fructose levels.
Ogilvy’s Jarrah honey has antimicrobial properties and has been tested in an Independent Australian Laboratory to check the Total Activity rating, non-peroxide activity and the antioxidant activity of the honey.
The TA numerical ratings also denote the strength of the antibacterial potency of the honey. Therefore, the higher the rating the more powerful the healing properties of the honey. The more severe the infection the higher the Total Activity rating is required for increased potency. It is important that the antioxidant potential of honey is determined as this can help in the authentication of honey and confirm its potential and positive medicinal properties.
There are no chemicals, sugars or antibiotics added in the bottling of our honey, producing a honey that is 100% pure raw Australian Jarrah honey.
