Narayan Foods has announced plans to launch plant-based honey into European markets in 2023, in what the company claims is a world first.
Developed by Californian food tech company MeliBio, the honey is said to be the first to hit the EU market that produces the indistinguishable taste and texture of bee-made honey but does not include processed syrup or concentrates.
The unique honey offers the same qualities as honey from bees, boosting immunity and offering bioactive and prebiotic properties.
The plant-based honey offers a real taste solution with the nutritional profile of bee-made honey without the negative impact it has on biodiversity.
Narayan’s bee-free honey proposes a vegan-friendly alternative, made with only clean-label ingredients, free from seasonal volatility and pesticides. The honey contains some of the same antioxidants as traditional honey and is free from clostridium bacteria, making it safe for new mothers and babies.
The plant-based honey will hit the shelves in early January 2023.
