Red Gum Honey is a wonderful honey, perfect as a natural sweetener and sugar substitute. The Red Gum tree produces a rich, golden honey with a mild and smooth flavour which is a little lighter than Jarrah honey. The other difference is that this is set honey, while Jarrah is runny.
Red Gum contains naturally occurring powerful antioxidants, flavonoids, known for their anti-inflammatory health benefits. The high antimicrobial properties makes it a natural powerful healer which can inhibit bacterial growth, reduce infections and enhance healing. The antimicrobial properties are measured by its TA (Total Activity).
Red Gum honey originates from the River Red Gum tree, Eucalyptus Camaldulensis. Flowering in late spring and early summer, the bees feed on the nectar from the delicate, creamy white flowers. As the flowering intensity is unpredictable from year to year Red Gum honey is considered rare.
