About Organic Sugars and Harde Honey
Here you’ll find including natural sweeteners such as raw sugar, golden sugar, wild forest honey and harde honey to complement the wellness lifestyle. These sweeteners are a great source of essential vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants. Some contain antibacterial properties and can be used as an alternative to high GI sugars. Our range extends a step further than your usual grocery stock. We’ve stocked unique products such as sugarcane jaggery and palm jaggery for the more adventurous. Jaggery is produced from natural plant saps, and is the perfect solution for chocolate addicts struggling with their cravings. It has a certain dense, smoky taste that goes wonderfully with nuts for healthy snacking. A homemade chikki with organic jaggery is way healthier than a bar of fruit and nut chocolate. Besides, in case you are looking for an alternative to a juice detox plan, you may want to consider jaggery. Rich in iron and potassium, it is a great blood purifier, boosts immunity, aids weight loss and is a great way to cool down in summers. Palm jaggery in fact is perfect as a sherbet and sugarcane jaggery is a healthier substitute to refined sugar in kheer and laddoos.
Harde or Haritaki, is a medicinal herb, one of the Triphala trinity, which is known for its varied health benefits, ranging from alleviating respiratory disorders, correcting digestion, and promoting overall immunity. The thing about Harde honey is, that like most organic honey, this too is uncultivated. The Harde tree only flowers once a year; this makes the honey derived from the pollen of these trees, a single flora honey—a rare and prized commodity. This deep golden honey is more opaque than translucent (a sign of its purity) and has a bitter-sweet flavor, reminiscent of the trees that housed it—the Harde and Jamun. The delicate enzyme structure of this raw honey (unlike other commercially available honeys, which are pasteurized and stripped of their essential benefits) ensures that all the nutrients are kept intact.
The best way to use Harde honey is to simply stir it in your herbal teas or use in salad dressings or as a topping for breakfast pancakes. Paired with some nut butter, it makes for an excellent topping for crisp apples and seasonal pears, offering the perfect balance between sweet and savoury.
