Immune health has become in 2020 one of the main priorities for the consumers, as we can observe from the latest study of FMCG Gurus consulting firm.
If we add to this the fact that “56% of the global consumers state they have paid more attention to the natural ingredients claims in 2020”, we are facing a consumer who cares deeply about immune health and natural ingredients as a way to achieve it.
Moreover, the COVID 19 outbreak has made the consumers feel the need for products that could bring them mental and emotional support, and the beehive’s products are the perfect natural ingredients to be added to food products and natural cosmetics.
The beehive’s products allow an emotional connection with the consumer, thanks to their multiple benefits and origins; their consumption also contributes to the beekeeping sector that takes care of the bees and pollinators, key roles in the biodiversity conservation.
These ingredients allow the creation of rituals with the consumer and are usually associated with different times of consumption.
Amongst the beehive’s natural products, we can highlight the following:
Royal Jelly, an ingredient for a healthy nutrition
One of the most valuable natural ingredients from the beehive is royal jelly, a product that has been consumed for thousand of years. It is a natural source of vitamins B: riboflavin, biotin, pyrodixine, inositol, thiamine, niacin, pantothenic acid, and folic acid.
Since it is an antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and healing agent, this ingredient has been included in products such as sweets, syrups, sprays, caps, and tablets. Thanks to its multiple benefits, it has also been included in the formula of other natural products such as toothpastes, creams, deodorants, shampoos, serum, medicinal creams, and functional food.
The most influential cosmetics brands incorporate royal jelly as an active ingredient to reduce the visible signs of skin aging. An ingredient to include in one’s daily beauty ritual.
At HoneyGreen+ we offer royal jelly in bulk and in different formats: fresh royal jelly, frozen royal jelly, and lyophilized royal jelly. We can also offer royal jelly in its organic version.
Propolis, a natural antibiotic that protects the immune system.
Propolis, also known as bee’s glue, is part of the traditional medicine; it is the antibiotic that protects the beehive, and it also has numerous benefits.
It is a beneficial product for many age segments, it is a natural antibiotic that protects the immune system and helps prevent and reduce infections of the upper respiratory tract.
Propolis is also used in the cosmetics industry as an active natural ingredient with antioxidant and moisturizing properties that regenerate the skin.
We offer bulk propolis from diverse origins and in different formats: raw propolis, propolis in blocks or propolis in powder.
Pollen, the perfectly complete food
The beehive’s product that provides the highest nutritional value is pollen; it has even been renamed as the “perfectly complete food” thanks to its composition. The origin of the pollen we work with is 100% Spain, a product that is internationally renowned for its high quality and exceptional organoleptic properties, thanks to Spanish’s rich flora.
Hippocrates, the Olympic gold medalists and Victoria Beckham all have a ritual in common: a daily pollen serving.
We offer Spanish bee pollen in bulk and in different formats: frozen Bee Pollen, dry Bee Pollen, Bee Pollen in powder (both conventional and organic).
Manuka Honey, the best natural antibiotic in the world.
Manuka honey is one of the most singular and precious natural resource on earth. This superfood is getting more and more popular thanks to its medicinal and cosmetic benefits. It is commonly known as the champagne of honeys, and it has quite a history: it has been used in Maori traditional medicine for centuries.
Its prebiotic and probiotic effect makes this ingredient an ideal product to include in the consumer’s diet, and for skincare. Its antibacterial properties give this honey its exclusiveness, since it has been described as “the best natural antibiotic in the word”.
At HoneyGreen+ we offer bulk Manuka Honey with a New Zealand origin, in different formats and qualities.
Honeycomb, the most premium and natural form of consuming honey
This natural ingredient is the answer to the consumers’ search for a gourmet product designed for special moments. It is the rawest form of honey, a product that is both beautiful to admire and delicious to eat. The honeycomb cut in acacia honey is one of the world’s most popular variety of honeys. It has a sweet taste, a clear colour, and a very slow process of crystallization.
The pandemic has made people spend more time at home; their houses have transformed into their office, restaurant, and relaxing place all at the same time.
The honeycomb is an ingredient that can be particularly interesting to design a ritual with the consumer, as it can be served with everyday food such as cheeses, cereals, toasts, ice-cream, fruits, and vegetables. It makes a perfect combination with cheese, wine, and friends.
At HoneyGreen+ we offer this ingredient with a European origin, to be packed with Acacia honey or for trays.
