The Jarrah tree is one of the world's most stately tall trees with a beautifully grained and richly coloured wood which makes it highly sought after for fine furniture or wherever high strength is required in construction.
The properties of the Jarrah tree have meant that for centuries there has been a high demand for this timber and we have lost vast numbers of the giant trees.
This makes the honey from these trees more difficult to obtain as it is a premium product with diminishing resources from which to gather this unique and beneficial product.
After a year of research in the Bunbury laboratories The Department of Agriculture states that honey gathered from the blossoms of the native Western Australian Jarrah tree (eucalyptus marginata from the south west of the state) has shown to have up to 50% higher active ingredients of hydrogen peroxide which is a light and heat sensitive enzyme called glucose oxidase. This enzyme occurs when the honey is diluted and its acidity is neutralised.
Jarrah Honey will not crystallise as it is fructose based. When the governing body of the agricultural endorses the WA Jarrah honey with statements like these it is a great reason to choose this product above else.
