Uniquely Western Australian Honey
Jarrah honey is a rarer product harvested from a species of Eucalyptus tree. Jarrah trees (Eucalyptus marginata) are found in the south-west corner of Western Australia, generally where the rainfall exceeds 600 mm. They can be found inland as far as Mooliabeenee, Clackline, Narrogin and in the south as far east as the Stirling Ranges.
Western Australian Jarrah trees only flower once every two years meaning that Jarrah Honey harvesting takes place bi-annually.
The Healing Honey
Jarrah produces a medium to dark, thick, tasty honey that is high in fructose and low in glucose. Its low GI index means it doesn’t spike the blood sugar and is a great alternative for people with diabetes (in moderation).
Jarrah honey is sought after for its high Total Activity (TA) properties. Research by the Australian Government has found that the levels of antibacterial activity in Jarrah honey are higher than that of Manuka honey (local honey of New Zealand) and it’s effectiveness against the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus – which causes bugs such as MRSA – as well as being a natural treatment for wounds, burns, sunburn, skin infections, skin repair, coughs and colds. Jarrah honey even fights the bacteria that cause stomach ulcers.
“Total Activity (TA)”. The TA we can relate as an bacteria killing scale; the higher the TA the greater the antimicrobial strength.
