Here are some amazing facts about Dino’s Madu Kelulut also known as Stingless Bee Honey:
Exceptional Antibacterial Property
Our product has been well-tested for antibacterial effectiveness and has consistently had an 87% average value.
The propolis-rich content of our Kelulut Honey has an unbelievable concentration of antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral agents contained in the secretions from the abdomen of Trigona species. Their propolis accounts for the honey’s exceptional antimicrobial, nutritional and medicinal uses. This is in contrast to the Apis species whose propolis is only used to fill up the extra spaces between the nest and cavity.
Organically Farmed and Harvested
Unlike the Apis species that constantly need to be treated with antibiotics and miticides to protect them from pest and diseases, the stingless bee species are highly resistant to diseases and pests due to their relatively smaller sizes and extensive use of propolis – which serves as a natural germicide and pest repellent. Hence, we do not need to use harmful pesticides or antibiotics before, during or after harvesting.
This, therefore explains why we describe Dino’s Madu Kelulut a.k.a. Stingless Bee Honey as a pure, contaminant-free product that is safe for consumption and other uses.
Highly Cost Effective
With the cost of chemical treatment, pesticides and germicide now out of the way, due to the Trigona species relatively smaller sizes and high tolerance to pest and diseases, and their extensive use of propolis, we are able to effectively channel our expenses on hygiene, packaging, and branding during the processing ofDino’s Madu Kelulut Stingless Bee Honey.
Moreover, stingless bee species do not require maintenance feeding (dextrose solution) due to their surplus pollen all-year-round. The not-as-fragile nature of their hives also makes splitting and transportation for crop pollination a breeze!
The Kelulut bees do not go beyond a radius of 0.3 – 0.5KM from their hive to collect plants’ nectar. More so, while commonly farmed honey bees are able to produce an average of 35kg of honey a hive per annum, these stingless Trigona species are only able to produce about a tenth of what their counterparts produce per annum!
Kelulut’s limited supply, however, accounts for the relatively higher cost of the honey product. But this is not essentially a disadvantage as one may readily perceive it. Reason? Dino’s Madu Kelulut Stingless Bee Honey is 100% organic, highly nutritious, and medicinally potent. Thus giving you a good run for your money!
