100% Pure Natural Honey Collected by Honeybees
At vast fields and ranches all over Japan in the summer, in a pesticide-free environment, there is pure, safe, and reliable natural honey collected by honeybees.
Considering the environment where honeybees can live safely and comfortably, this honey is filled with the nature of Japan and is harvested from the flowers of organic farms that do not use pesticides and ranches where there is no worry about pesticides.
Recently, it's common to mix antibiotics in the bee's bait to prevent honeybee diseases, but there is a risk that drug-resistant bacteria will appear and the antibiotics will not work, and the honeybees will be gone. Considering the danger to the human body due to the residual antibiotics in honey, we are particular about beekeeping without using antibiotics, and honeybees are produced in a way that is close to the power and ecology of living naturally.
Honey-making That Hasn't Changed Since Old Time
A gift from nature made by honeybees. This honey is a brand that coexists with nature, and we use the ancient manufacturing method that helps farmers in organic and natural farming to pollinate their fields, and making honey in the fields and mountain foothills until the end.
No additives, no heat treatment, pure from the wilderness. Please feel the deliciousness of genuine honey, which is now rare to get.
Safe and Secure Japan's Domestic Pure Raw Honey
This honey is collected by bees from natural flowers. The main premise of Kawashimaya's honey is that you can use it with peace of mind. Therefore, we are particular about these four points.
Japan's Domestic Honey
Japan's pure domestic honey is really valuable and only available for less than 5% of the honey market (in Japan).
Many of honey in the market was processed by adding coloring agents, preservatives, sweeteners, etc.
Because of that, there are many honey products which we cannot expect to have the original benefits of honey.
Honey is generally heated for efficient production. But, when heated above 40°C, the honey's nutritional component can gradually breaks down.
Unheated honey is less than 0.1% in the honey market. This honey is the unheated one, so you can have full nutritional component from it.
No Antibiotics Used for Honeybees
Considering the impact on the ecosystem and the impact of the antibiotics remaining in the honey for the human body, we are particular about not using antibiotics for honeybees.
※ Do not give honey to babies under 1 year old.
