Starflower is a widely spread wild flower, used in both traditional and modern medicine, in beekeeping as it provides high amounts of both nectar and pollen, in agriculture as a companion plant and as a culinary ingredient. The Welsh called it the “herb of gladness”. Starflower honey is a very distinctive, clear type of honey. It has a subtle aroma, pale color and a light, sweet taste that many find delicious. It's generally a light, delicate honey loved with porridge or in tea, though there are lots of other ways to pair it with foods too. It's perfect when drizzled over berries or ice-cream. The content of sugar in it is not more than 15 g/100 g. It also has a low antibacterial activity, compared to that of acacia. This is perhaps one of the sweetest of all the honeys, making it a great alternative sweetener to table sugar. If you keep starflower honey in the refrigerator it sets to a chewy texture, which makes it a bit more like toffee than honey. This cool chewy texture is a favorite with kids. It helps alleviate depression and has excellent anti-inflammatory properties. It treats premenstrual symptoms and helps with menopause symptoms like hot flashes. It’s also great to treat respiratory and cardiovascular disorders.
Note: "Organic Monkey procures pure raw honey directly from tribals and passionate beekeepers all over India. It is unadulterated, unprocessed, unblended, not microfiltered or infused with anything. Pure raw honey never stays the same. As it ages, its color, consistency and/or taste profile may change, crystallization may occur when the natural glucose settles on beneficial microparticles in the honey."
