The Golden Benefits of Honey in 'Bee'gan Chocolate Bars

Welcome to the world of 'Bee'gan Chocolate Bars, where we combine tasty treats with goodness for you and the planet. Have you ever wondered why our chocolate bars are so special? 

Well, the secret lies in honey! Yes, that sweet, golden syrup isn't just there to make things taste good. It's packed with amazing benefits that make our 'Bee'gan bars extra special. Join us as we discover why honey is so awesome and why it makes our chocolate bars even more delicious and healthy for you.

In Ayurveda, honey is revered for its ability to balance the doshas (the three fundamental energies that govern the body) and its healing properties in various ailments. It is believed to possess "snehana" (unctuous) and "ruksha" (dry) qualities, making it beneficial for different body types and conditions.

What is raw honey?

Raw honey is honey that comes straight from the beehive and hasn't been changed by heating or processing. It keeps all the good stuff like natural enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants.

Raw honey tastes just like it does in the hive and can be really good for you. It's often used to help with things like sore throats and digestion because it's so natural and full of goodness

How do bees make honey?

Bees go to flowers and drink sweet liquid called nectar. They store this nectar in their tummies. Then, they fly back to their hive. Inside the hive, they share the nectar with other bees. These bees chew the nectar and make it gooey. They put this gooey stuff into little honeycomb pockets. 

The bees flap their wings over the pockets to make the water in the nectar go away. When the water is gone, the gooey stuff turns into honey. Then, the bees seal the pockets with wax. That's how bees make honey!

Keeping it Raw: The Sweet Secret Behind Elements Truffles

At Elements Truffles, we make chocolates with honey, but we never heat it up. Heating honey can take away some of its good stuff, like vitamins and antioxidants. So, we use raw honey, which keeps all the good things in it. This way, our chocolates not only taste yummy but also help you stay healthy. We think it's important to use natural ingredients and keep them as pure as possible. That's why we stick to raw honey in all our chocolates.

Discover the sweet benefits of honey:

Honey is not just tasty; it's also really good for you! Here are some simple reasons why honey is awesome:

Energy boost: Honey has natural sugars that give you quick energy without making you feel tired later.

Antioxidant power: Honey has special things called antioxidants that help keep your body healthy and fight off sickness.

Helps your immune system: Honey has stuff in it that fights off germs, so it can help you stay healthy, especially during cold and flu season.

Good for your gut: Honey has things that help your tummy work better, so it can help with things like indigestion and tummy aches. Honey contains prebiotics, which are substances that help nourish and stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. These bacteria, often referred to as probiotics, play a key role in maintaining digestive health by supporting proper digestion and nutrient absorption.

Helps heal wounds: Honey can be put on cuts and scrapes to help them heal faster because it stops germs from growing and makes a protective layer.

Makes your skin soft: If you put honey on your skin, it helps keep it moisturized and stops it from getting dry and irritated.


Q: Is honey good for you?

Yes, honey can be good for you in moderation. It provides quick energy, has antioxidants to keep you healthy, supports your immune system, helps heal wounds, and is good for your tummy. However, because honey is high in sugar and calories, it's essential to enjoy it in small amounts. Also, babies under one year old shouldn't have honey.

Q: Is honey vegan? 

Honey comes from bees, so it's an animal product. Normally, vegans don't eat it because they want to avoid anything from animals. But if honey is collected in a way that doesn't hurt the bees, some vegans might be okay with it. It's about being kind to animals and making sure they're treated well. So, whether honey is vegan or not depends on how it's made and how people feel about it.

Q: Does honey help a sore throat? 

Yes, honey can make a sore throat feel better. It has stuff in it that fights germs, and its thick texture can coat your throat and stop it from feeling scratchy. Plus, honey tastes sweet, which helps your throat feel better too. You can have honey in warm water or add it to tea to help soothe a sore throat. But remember, babies under one year old shouldn't have honey because it can be harmful for them.

Q: Why does honey crystallize?

Honey crystallizes because the sugars in it start to form tiny crystals. This happens naturally over time. Factors like temperature and the type of honey can speed up or slow down this process. Even though crystallized honey looks different, it's still safe to eat. You can make it smooth again by gently warming it up.

Q: Is honey better for blood sugar levels than regular sugar?

Yes, honey is a bit better for blood sugar levels than regular sugar because it doesn't raise blood sugar as quickly. But it still contains sugar, so you should be careful how much you eat, especially if you have diabetes. It's always good to check with your doctor about what's best for you.
