Forest Honey is a natural sweetener and comes from the nectar collected by the bees from the wild mangrove forests on the coastal belt of Sindh and Balochistan provinces in Pakistan.
Experts and honey enthusiasts rate mangrove honey highly because of its medicinal value. As mangrove trees absorb a lot of nutrients from the sea and these are transferred to the nectar giving it precious medicinal properties.
The honey produced by the bees is light brown in color and has a rich texture. It is mild but yet has rich and exuberant fruity taste that tantalizes the taste buds.
This honey is also known as Mangrove Honey, Wild Forest Honey.
