Welcome to The Honey Hub Western Australia

We are passionate about beekeeping and caring for the environment. We strive to produce high quality, raw, unprocessed, microbiologically active honey that reaches you, our customer, with all the health benefits intended by nature.

Western Australia has the strictest quarantine laws in the world for protecting our agricultural industry. Because of this, our honey is free from many pests and diseases found in the Eastern States or other countries, for example, small hive beetles, varroa mites, and exotic bee mites.

Another bonus of these strict quarantine laws is that Western Australian honey is a highly sought after product because of its purity. Western Australia bees, hives, and consequently the honey do not need to be chemically treated, making it one of the world’s most natural products available.

We hope you enjoy our honeys!

Discover Our Raw Unprocessed Honey

Raw unprocessed honey has many health benefits in comparison to other sweeteners.

Raw unprocessed honey means we strain the honey to remove impurities such as bees’ wax without warming it above 40 degrees Celsius. Industry standards deem this temperature unheated, as the hive temperature is on average about 37 degrees Celsius.

Because it is a natural product, the NUTRITIONAL composition of honey is variable, however, 100g of unpasteurised honey may contain:

  • Total sugars 77.9g
  • Fructose 38.2g
  • Glucose 31.0g
  • Sucrose 1.5g
  • Maltose 7.2g
  • Other Carbohydrates 4.2g
  • Minerals, Vitamins & Enzymes

Traces of calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, selenium, manganese, Vitamin B (riboflavin, niacin) and Vitamin C.

Most Western Australian honeys are microbiologically active and is known for its ANTIBACTERIAL and ANTIFUNGAL properties that come from plant chemicals activated by bee enzymes. Bio-activity in honey is indicated by a Total Antimicrobial Activity (TA) rating.

TA ratings stated on honey labels can range between TA 10+ and TA 35+. The greater the TA rating, the more bacteria and fungus the honey can potentially kill.
