What, honey is not vegan? Well no !
For a comparison, there is cow's milk (intended for calves) and its alternatives, plant-based drinks (oats, almonds, coconut, cashew milks, etc.). Similarly, there is honey produced by the bees (which they create for food), and its vegan alternative, Bumble Bloom™!
Bumble Bloom have made it theoir mission to offer a healthy, organic, honey-like product that people love, but without the negative impact on bee colonies.
Honey's reputation as a natural and healthy product began in the 1960s, based on the image that beekeeping was in harmony with nature. In the 1970s, growing demand and foreign competition led beekeepers to feed bees high-glucose corn syrup in order to extract and sell more and more honey.
So what's the deal with that? Honey is more than just a consumer product!
The bees produce it for food and to support the hive in anticipation of winter. When their honey is extracted and replaced with a refined sugar substitute (junk food), the health of the colony is seriously compromised. Without the pollination work of healthy bees, many foods we take for granted would simply not be available.
Honey is for the bees!
