Honey is the sweetest bee product that was first time tested by human beings. It is made by honey bees from the nectar of flower by adding some enzymes and ripening in the comb. So, it is one of the most delicious and nutritious natural food that when taken daily gives lots of energy, medicinal benefits and makes body immune to various diseases. The taste, color, flavors and nutrient content of honey varies according to floral sources. Therefore, Gorkha Bee is producing honey separately based on the floral sources as mustard (Brassica spp) honey, buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) honey, forest tree churi ( Aesandra butyraceae) honey forest herbal shrubs rudhilo (Pogostemon glaber ), honey, litchi honey (Litchi chinensis ) etc. The production of honey according to the floral sources will definitely provide more choice and satisfaction to consumers. Honey when heated loses its natural taste, flavor, color and also few volatile nutrient elements. So, the live honey i.e not heated, is far better than the heated honey. Keeping in mind this factor, it has brought live as well as heated honey (dead honey) in te market.
The demand for the comb honey is much higher than for the extracted honey in Nepal and abroad. So, Gorkha Bee has recently initiated to produce comb honey from the indigenous bee A. cerana.
