Sidr honey is considered one of the highest quality honeys and it’s been known for healing benefits since ancient time. Often called the Manuka honey of the middle east.
Sidr honey is produced by bees who only feed on the nectar of Sidr trees. The whole of the sidr tree is considered beneficial from its roots to its leaves. The sidr tree is also known as the lote tree, Christ’s thorn, and Jujube. The honey is characterized by golden light color; it darkens and tends to redness over time. The Sidr trees are grown wild and uncultivated in the desert areas.
Careful steps have been taken by bee keepers who are strict when it comes to the production and extraction of their honey. They do not heat nor add sugars to their honey. No chemicals or antibiotics are used before during or after extraction. No machinery is used. All are done using their hands, a little smoke and knives. The honey is then poured, unheated and raw, into containers, thus preserving its vital live enzymatic constituents.
