I haven’t used table sugar in years, I think since I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in 2007. After giving birth to my youngest, and the craving for coffee was at its peak, I adjusted my pref and got contented with either black coffee, with just cream, or those 3-in-1 sachets. The transition was kinda easy for me coz well, I got scared of the disease big time! Besides, processed sugar ain’t good for the body, so that made it all the more easier to avoid.
I then switched to using honey but found out that there were many fake ones sold in the groceries. I wasn’t sure anymore, so I stopped because I learned that it did me more harm than give good health benefits.
Alas, here comes Langnese Honey! It’s a popular brand in Germany and widely distributed in over 45 countries. I’ve heard about this particular honey from a friend who lives abroad, continuously raving about it and she has diabetes too.
Five (5) flavors were introduced – Acacia, Golden Clear, Black Forest, Wild Flower and Lavender.
Had dibs on the Langnese Bee Easy Acacia Honey while taking shots of the products and I honestly liked it! Unlike most honey I bought in the supermarket, these selections are of high quality and residue-free.
You can use the Acacia Honey for your breakfast cereals, teas and desserts. I will try it with coffee soon so I can finally ditch those 3 in 1 grocery bought sachets.

The Wild Flower Honey is great for sweetening your food, beverages, makes bread and pastry tastier, though sweet, it’s the most healthy alternative than using refined sugar.

The Black Forest Honey is my most fave amongst the rest because it’s got this amazing flavor and thickness that’s not overly sweet.

Mix it with your vinaigrette and make your salad stand out!

It’s raw, unfiltered, residue-free, with only 16%-21% water content, meaning not a thing was added nor removed from it!
2. No short cuts nor compromise.
What makes it premium is the commitment to quality and purity from the selection, processing, marketing, not to mention the long standing great relationship with beekeepers. The company and brand have countless certifications which marks it’s reliability, safety and quality.
