BEE APPROVED, VEGAN, ORGANIC, GLUTEN FREE ALTERNATIVE TO HONEY
Bee Approved is certified Vegan
The word vegan was created in 1944 by the Vegan Society; their Trademark is the authentic international vegan standard. (www.vegansociety.com) Today, products, including vegan honey, must pass strict criteria to be eligible for registration. Individual applications are scrutinised by a dedicated and experienced team of professionals, who query any potential inclusion of animal ingredients. This includes any not present in the final result.
Bee Approved is certified Organic
The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed and this can have a major impact on your mental and emotional well-being, as well as on the environment. People with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen, or even disappear, when they eat only organic foods such as vegan honey.
Organic foods are often more nutritionally beneficial, contain fewer pesticides, are GMO free and are better for the environment. Genetically engineered foods are plants whose DNA has been changed in ways that cannot occur naturally and this is most commonly carried out to produce resistance to pesticides, insecticides, or to increase crop yields.
Bee Approved is Gluten Free
Gluten is the protein component genetically found in wheat, rye and barley and Modern diets have become increasingly dependent on it. Gluten sensitivity may result in bloating, pain and stomach cramps and a gluten-free diet, of which vegan honey may be a part, can be beneficial. It is important to note this intolerance is different from coeliac disease – an auto-immune condition caused by a reaction to gluten, which must be avoided for life.
Gluten-free diets should be full of whole foods and rich in nutrients. The wide range of gluten-free products now available, may not be as high in fibre, iron, folic acid and B vitamins as their mainstream counterparts so, if you have any concerns about your nutritional intake you should speak to your GP.
