Hexapi Organic Acacia Honey & Honeycomb is only original from the unique natural beauty of the March of Brandenburg in Germany with lush and naturally grown acacia forests.
Located in the northern lowland of Germany around Berlin, Brandenburg is known for its well-preserved natural environment and its ambitious natural protection. The region is taken up by 3,000 crystal-clear lakes and 30,000 kilometres of rivers and half of the area is covered with beech, sessile oak, pine and acacia tree forests.
Around one third of Brandenburg’s landscape consists of nature reserves and there are countless nature parks and 240 nature conservation areas. This natural beauty of acacia forests, lush with white flower clusters, creates every May a big feast for our happy bees. Then the whole forest of gnarled acacia trees is buzzing as our busy bees collect the sweet organic nectar which then creates our unique Hexapi Organic Acacia Honey & Honeycomb you can enjoy.

Due to its high fructose level of 42% Organic Acacia Honey will not crystalize for a long period. It further only contains 10% of sucrose and maltose and 35% of glucose and is therefore a great choice for diabetic patients as it contains low sucrose levels.
Furthermore, experts believe that the antibacterial benefits of honey are the main reason chewing honeycomb is so healthy.Digestion
Acacia Honey’s active enzymes improve stomach and Duodenum Mucous membrane regeneration. Additionally, it has anti-acidic properties and thus reliefs indigestion problems associated with an abundant secretion of gastric acid.Respiratory problem
Organic Acacia Honey is recommended for bronchial disturbances and respiratory infections.Cough
Acacia Honey is ideal to relief cough and the low pollen content will not cause allergic reactions.Kidney & Urinary System
Acacia Honey acts as a diuretic in the urinary system. Besides and comparing to other honeys, the low protein level in our Organic Acacia Honey hence brings positive effect to both urinary and kidney problems.Liver Detox

This is because problems with the liver are often rooted in oxidative damage. Acacia honey’s antioxidants such as phenolics and peptides help to protect the liver.Stabilizing cholesterol
The fatty acids in acacia honey and honeycomb may assist in stabilizing cholesterol.Diabetes
Acacia Honey has a low glycaemic index ranking and may assist in stabilizing blood sugar. It preserves its liquid state for a long period of time due to its high fructose content. Its low sugar level makes this product a perfect choice for the consumption by people concerned about blood sugar.Heart
Acacia Honey may assist in stabilizing blood pressure and increasing the level of haemoglobin.Disclaimer

Our honeycombs come directly from the beehive and therefore contain honey in its purest form - unprocessed, natural, and pure. It is best to consume every morning, one piece before breakfast straight from the jar.
Since Acacia honey dissolves easily, it is an excellent sweetener for tea and other drinks, it is also a super choice for fruit salads, vegetables, bread and serves exquisitely with blue cheeses. Its pleasant aroma is loved by children and useful in their diet as it increases appetite and quickly replenishes lost energy.
Acacia Honey has a high fructose to glucose ratio and will therefore not crystalize for a long time. It crystallizes only after years from the harvesting moment.
Originally the acacia tree, also called “false acacia” or botanically correct Robinia pseudoacacia L. originated from North America and was introduced in Germany in 1670 into local castle gardens and parks. It has to be noted that the false acacia is not the same as the acacia with great biodiversity exists in Africa and Australia.
Hexapi Organic Acacia Honey & Honeycomb originates from naturally grown, unplanted and untreated acacia trees in protected forest areas which give less nectar than honey from commercial acacia plantations whose canopies are much bigger, so they receive more sun to produce flowers.
Since German acacia trees bloom in May when bee populations are still undeveloped, bees cannot entirely use its nectar even though our bees are so busy with it that they have no time taking nectar from other plants. Real natural German acacia honey is rare!
Annual seasonal and biologic factors also make it also impossible to reproduce our Organic Acacia Honey & Honeycomb exactly from year to year so slight variations in colour and taste may occur – making it a truly enjoyable natural honey.
Beeswax, the material used to make honeycomb, is a truly extraordinary material with some fascinating properties. Worker bees have 8 pairs of wax glands under their abdomen. These glands produce small, flat wax “scales” up to 3 mm long and 0.5 mm deep. When a worker creates comb, they scrape a wax scale from their abdomen using the spines on their pollen basket and passes them to their front legs. Holding the scale in place, they then mix it with saliva by chewing with their mandibles. This adjusts the malleability of the wax, making it more suitable as a building material from which each individual cell is built. Repeated tens of thousands of time, these cells form the comb in a beehive.
In 36 BC, Marcus Terentius Varro argued that honeycombs were the most practical structures around. Centuries later, Greek mathematician Pappus solidified the “honeycomb conjecture” by making the same claim. Almost 2000 years later, Thomas Hales wrote a 19-page mathematical proof showing that, of all the possible structures, honeycombs use the least amount of wax. And not only are honeycombs the most efficient structures in nature and the walls meet at a precise 120-degree angle, a perfect hexagon.
