YUNGA Andina Honey
It is a raw organic dark multi-flower Yunga forest honey, extra virgin with the highest quality and purity. It comes 100% from natural wild forests.
Located between 3,000 and 3,300 feet above the sea level, our establishment "Los Amarillos", is part of a Natural Reserve of Native Mountain, in the Ancasti Mountain Range of the Andes, in the province of Catamarca, Argentina. It is one of the areas with the greatest biodiversity of the Yungas, composed by a large amount and variety of huge trees and different plant species. As a Natural Reserve, we grow tree species in extinction and carry out beekeeping among our main activities. Beekeeping is a key activity for the pollination of the vegetal species in the area of native reserves.
In our land and also in the land surrounding us, no intensive crops are developed. No activities that may use fertilizers, pesticides or chemical additives are carried out in the whole area. This is the key that allows us to obtain a premium and pure honey that is free of any pollutant agents.
As a result, we produce YUNGA Andina, a yunga honey that is born in a virgin ecosystem and elaborated with the highest international standards of organic production.
ORGANIC. It is 100% organic, certified by FOOD SAFETY S.A. , according to the Argentinean Law 25.127 and its regulations, as per certificate AR-BIO-001.
EXTRA VIRGIN RAW. Our honey is not "pressed" or "filtered", that is why it preserves its high nutritional value from pollen and propolis. The process of “pressing” or filtering honey usually includes pollutant agents that affect severely the nutritional and medicinal benefits of natural honey. Extra Virgin Raw honey contains probiotics and enzymes that have great benefits, way above from Pressed and Filtered honey.
MULTI-FLOWER. Besides collecting nectar from flowers, bees collect “honey dew”, which is produced by certain kinds of trees and plants from the native forest. That is why our YUNGA Andina Honey has a deep dark amber color.
