Acacia Honey comes from the flowers of the Acacia tree. The tree is commonly found in parts of northern Pakistan, Afghanistan and India.
The Acacia tree is grown in the wild and the honey obtained from the bees around the tree is 100% organic. The Honey produced by the bees is light in both color and texture.
It is sweet, mild and versatile in its use in baking, cooking and as a natural sweetener.
Acacia honey barely crystalizes due to its high fructose content.
