People around Russia have already discovered the incredible health properties of Medoved honey available in all its natural goodness. Now it is time for you to experience this absolutely organic product from undisturbed areas of our country and nearby regions.
Medoved honeys are collected in Valday region, Bashkortostan republic, southern Kuban region, in the Altay mountains and Russian Far East areas. It is also extremely exclusive honey from Caucasian republics of Abkhazia and Georgia where there is close to zero industrial activity that you can obtain from us. We are truly committed to quality and the highest standards for purity, cleanliness and safety of all product.
To reinforce this commitment, a quality management system is operated in all areas of Medoved company. Our Quality Management System covers all requirements of НАССР, ISOO 9001:2008 along with Russian State Food Standard GОSТ 19792-2001.
Regular qualitative and quantitative screening tests of honey for phytochemicals such as tannins, phlobatanins, flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosie, alkaloids, flourides of honeysamples are carried out by Medoved own laboratory. The honey chemical composition is also analyzed to keep sure we provide safe high-standard product.
Honey has a number of useful properties apart from tasting good. The health benefits of honey are too numerous to be named, but here are three key ones: it is nature's energy booster, immunity system builder, even a remedy for ailments!
Honey contains a number of enzymes: invertase, which converts sucrose to glucose and fructose; amylase, which breaks starch down into smaller units; glucose oxidase, which converts glucose to gluconolactone, which in turn yields gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide; catalase, which breaks down the peroxide formed by glucose oxidase to water and oxygen; and acid phosphorylase, which removes inorganic phosphate from organic phosphates. Honey also contains eighteen free amino acids, of which the most abundant is proline. Honey contains trace amounts of the B vitamins riboflavin, niacin, folic acid, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. It also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and the minerals calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, selenium, chromium and manganese.
Honey composition is very complex and fragile. It can be easily damaged by exessive heating. That is why at Medoved plant we are using state-of-art honey processing system, where modern pumps, filtering and straining systems, flash heat exchangers and coolers controlled by highly accurate electronic sensors coupled to computerized systems make this excessive heating a thing of the past. We use a process for liquefying our honey that routinely delivers the lowest amount of heat damage to honey possible.
Our goal is to provide you with repeatable quality and consistent flavour sensations.
