A wild honey
The wild flower of the Ulmo (eucryphia cordifolia), same family as the leatherwood (eucryphia lucida), resembles that of the Camellia. Its flavor is very fruity and flowery reminiscent of anise. Ulmo honey is believed to have powerful healing and anti-bacterial properties, but it will especially please lovers of exotic tastes.
The Ulmo tree is emblematic of the Andes Cordillera and grows up to about 700-1000 meters above sea level. The bees appreciate its flowers for their strong aromatic scent. It is a tree that is now threatened by deforestation.
Patagonia, a wild land full of flavors
Patagonia is one of the most remote regions of our planet, it is wild, vast and imposing. Patagonia encompasses the southern tip of South America with Argentina and Chile which are separated by the Andes Cordillera. It is composed of glacial fjords and temperate tropical forests.
Our Ulmo honey is harvested in the northern part of Chilean Patagonia in the Lago Ranco region. In this region the ulmo is an imposing tree with evergreen foliage and magnificent blooms whose small, immaculately white flowers are much appreciated by bees. It is the emblematic honey of this magnificent region. To be discovered!
Ulmo honey in the kitchen?
It has a sweetening power appreciated in pastries. It resists well to cooking, so it can be used as a caramelization element, in pastries as well as in cooking (to lacquer a magret for example). It also goes well with a cheese platter, it is a nice alternative to the more classic chutney.

Is your honey labtest ?Yes of course, lab tested in Katmandu and Paris. You can ask for it at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is Mad Honey legal ?Mad honey is legal in the European countries and in the majority of the others, this honey is however prohibited in India, Mexico, Brazil, Canada & Australia
How long does honey keep?The date on the jars is an indication of freshness: honey can be kept for several years without ever becoming unfit for consumption, but over time it may lose some of its aromas and taste characteristics.
Is your honey pasteurized?Absolutely not, on the contrary, we prioritize a natural honey which will not have undergone any transformation, except a light filtering to remove the large particles of propolis, pollen and wax which are naturally found in honey. In order to be a supplier of BEELIXIR, each beekeeper is bound by a set of specifications.
Why is there mottling in my jar?Honey has a low thermal conductivity, unlike glass jars. Under the effect of a variation in temperature, the jar undergoes a slight expansion while its contents will keep its shape. An empty space is then created and will be occupied by air: marbling appears. They are a sign of low humidity of the honey and therefore of a good storage capacity. They prove that the honey has not undergone any handling that could alter its structure: heating, mixing, etc...
Is it normal for my honey to change its appearance?Honey crystallizes naturally. There can therefore be two phases if it is in the process of crystallization (liquid phase on top, solid phase underneath).
Is honey lower in calories than sugar?Honey is 25% less caloric than sugar (100g sugar = 400 kcal, 100g honey = 300 kcal), and its sweetening power is 1.3 times higher than sucrose.
Can I put my honey in the fridge?It is not recommended to keep your honey in the fridge. The cold increases the phenomenon of crystallization and therefore hardening.
Crystallized honey? You put sugar in it?Each beekeeper who is a partner of Beelixir is bound by a simple and yet very strict set of specifications, as there are no compromises. We do not add sugar to our honey. It is moreover forbidden by law. This fraudulent process is called the adulteration of honey. An article of the CETAM of Lorraine denounces the frauds (labelling --> origin) or adulteration on the honeys of China. Most often sold in a totally opaque way under the name "honeys from EC / non-EC countries". This name, which is legal, often covers a high proportion of honey from China.
I have two identical honeys at home, but they don't taste the same. Is that normal?The taste of a honey is the result of several uncontrollable factors: The climate, the gleaned flowers, etc... In this respect, a honey will always be a unique, 100% natural product, for which bees decide to eat the flowers according to their desires. The taste can therefore vary slightly from one harvest to another.
