Read on for more details about the origin, taste and uses of this liquid honey.

12,000 years ago, Mexico was home to the first avocado trees known to man. Today, the region of Michoacan on the Pacific coast of western Mexico produces half of the world's avocado crop.

Our Raw Organic Pacific Avocado Honey is produced by bees that feed on the nectar from these avocado trees, which are situated 5000ft high on the mountain slopes of Michoacan.

The avocado tree grows 20m high with leaves 12-25cm long and small green-yellow flowers 5-10mm wide. It only grows in tropical or subtropical climates.

Tasting notes: Bold, rich, woody, smoky, burnt sugar and caramel notes that mellow into maple syrup and black treacle with a subtle aftertaste of avocado

Texture: Buttery smooth black liquid that is silky on the tongue but dissolves quickly

Aroma: Strong, lactic as if fermenting, similar to cooked butter and warm chestnut

Sweetness: medium

Mixed in cold water, this honey makes a nutritious, refreshing and tasty drink. With thick Greek yoghurt, it makes a healthy snack or breakfast. Drizzled on top of premium vanilla ice cream, it makes a delicious dessert.

Mix a teaspoon into a glass of cold organic milk and add a pinch of salt for an organic salted caramel milkshake!

In accordance with EU directive 1924/2006 we are unable to make any health claim about any of our honeys. The information given below is either background information about the plants from which our honey comes, or anecdotal based on customer reviews. It should not be inferred from the plant properties that this honey automatically possesses the same qualities or provides the same benefits as the plant.

The avocado fruit contains an incredible amount (over 25) of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and some of the highest levels of health-promoting properties known to exist.

With a high number of bioactive compounds, the avocado fruit is said to offer many of the same health properties as an aloe vera plant.

When used as a face mask avocado extracts can promote healthy, supple skin.

Avocado extracts can be used as a hair conditioner for dry, damaged hair and to promote shiny, vibrant hair.

Avocados contain carotenoid lutein in far higher concentrations than in any other fruit. Lutein is essential for protection against age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Avocado extracts are also used:

- to neutralise unpleasant breath
- as a natural treatment for dandruff
- to accelerate menstruation
- to combat viruses including herpes
- during pregnancy due to its exceptionally high vitamin, mineral and folic acid content
- to relieve symptoms of psoriasis

Scientific studies

A study in Shizuoka University, Japan, in 2000, found that compounds naturally present in avocados can help reduce liver disease.

A 2005 study in Tufts University, Massachusetts, USA, found that avocados are high in lutein, which helps protects eyesight against cataracts and macular degeneration.

A 2016 study at the University of Santa Maria, Brazil, found that avocados are one of the most nutrition-dense fruits on the planet.

This honey can be used like ordinary honey but is best taken as a teaspoon of this honey mixed into a glass of cool or warm (not hot) water and drunk once a day on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast.

Good quality
Dear Ashraf, Thank you for your review. We are glad you liked our honey. Since 2018 we discontinued the old large jars when the price we pay to our suppliers increased. It simply was not sustainable for us to continue at the old prices. We pay our beekeepers double to what large corporations pay them because they are from poor communities whose livelihoods depend on us buying their honey. We did not want to squeeze them when the prices went up. Someone in the UK can afford to pay a bit more for their honey but for a poor beekeeper it makes all the difference. That’s one reason why our honey is more expensive than other honeys. Secondly our quality is superior to other honeys. We are confident that even at the new prices you won’t find honey if this quality anywhere. :-) Please read this article on our website for more information on how the ey you spend on our honey is spent https://latinhoneyshop.com/blogs/news/10-reasons-why-latin-american-honey-costs-more-than-other-honeys?_pos=3&_sid=d0394bd81&_ss=r
