Soumour honey, what is it?

In Yemen, soumour honey is to Yemen what Acacia honey is to France, a very popular honey, a world reference and much consumed.

Some of its aspects make us think of Yemeni sidr honey, especially its rather brown colour. We will appreciate its character straight from the Yemeni soil. The local know-how is world-renowned, the age and efficiency of the methods used are points that have made it known.

This honey is also called the acacia gum tree honey, in reference to the plant from which it comes from. The bees of Yemen gather a flower called the acacia gum tree. This high quality monofloral honey has a fruity taste that is appreciated by young and old alike.

Recurring questions

Is your honey labtest ?

Yes of course, lab tested in Katmandu and Paris. You can ask for it at

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.
