Have you heard of Melipona honey? It’s a special type of honey that comes from signless bees (Melipona bees) and is harvested in Mexico’s Yucatán region. Melipona honey is different from your regular honey in a few ways.
First of all, Melipona honey is smooth and slightly sour. It’s more watery than we’re used to and has been used by ancient and contemporary Mayan communities. It’s famous for its healing properties and health benefits, which is why more and more people are trying to get their hands on it. Most of them fail, however, because the honey is produced in small quantities thanks to a limited population of stingless bees.
Melipona honey is rarely used as a food sweetener; it’s rare and expensive and better suited for curing medical conditions. If you get a chance to get it, don’t hesitate!
