Why Isn’t Honey Vegan?

 

Vegans don’t consume animals (i.e. steak or chicken) or animal derivatives (i.e. milk or eggs).  Because honey is a by-product of bees, it is not vegan.  To learn more about vegans and honey take a look at:

Bee Free Honee

 

Bee Free Honee is made from organic apple juice concentrate, water, non-GMO/vegan cane sugar, and lemon juice.  Upon opening a bottle of Bee Free Honee, I was greeted by a delicious, sweet apple smell.

I squirted some on a spoon and tasted it.  And then I smiled.  It tasted like honey with a hint of apple flavoring.  Definitely a sweetener I’d be happy to use in tea, on toast, or in baked goods.

More Reasons to Love Bee Free Honee

 

Bee Free Honee is a family business based in Minnesota.  They only use apples grown in the United States and source their bottles and caps from Minnesota.  In other words, Bee Free Honee keeps things local!  And we all know that local sourcing is better for the environment.
