Our Kiwot Honey is harvested in the wild from the hives of the Filipino Stingless Bee, or Kiwot. Don’t expect the sweet, mellow taste of your standard honey; Kiwot Honey’s sour, fermented taste has prompted many people to call it “Kombucha Honey”. While the comparison is useful, Kiwot Honey’s wild flavor is truly like no other in the world.
Kiwot Honey is a perfect second product for Hunter Gatherer Natural Foods because Kiwot stingless bees work in a relationship of mutually beneficial symbiosis with the pili tree. The bees are essential for pollinating pili trees, and the trees, in turn, provide valuable food for the bees. By offering both delicious foods we are able to protect both species in their wild habitats, and by doing so, increase our own effectiveness in producing them. Our Wild Raw Kiwot Honey is the natural product of the rainforest working together, and we hope you’ll be as impressed by the result as we are.
