I'm looking for honey with the mildest "honey" taste. I'm following the SCD diet, and honey is the only natural sweetener allowed. I don't really like the taste of honey, and wondered if anyone could recommend a mild tasting type?

Clover is supposed to be the mildest flavor.  I have read this because my family has a couple of hives.

clover,  and  it  should  be  local honey  not  honey  from other  countries or  a  combo  from other  countries  &  the  US...You  should  be  able  to find  locally sourced  honey ( clover)  from  your  next  of the  woods...Make sure  it is  PURE honey.... oddly  some honey  is   just  sugars  &  such   not  true  honey... What  has  become  of  our  food  supply. scary....

Ahhh... clover honey. Thank you!

 

I will definitely get a good brand with no additives... and local too, yes, good reminder. Sometimes it's hard remembering all the things we have to think about!

 

It is very scary what our "so called" food supply has become. One of my goals is to grow as many things myself as I can... within the small outdoor space I have. There are fruit, vegetables, and herbs that grow great in pots!. There's nothing like stepping outside to pick something from your own yard.

I'd do clover too. 

I only buy organic honeys and there is a brand that I've tried several different varieties, wild flower, orange blossom, etc. I found that the darker the color of the honey, the less I liked the flavor.

But, I also had to stop eating honey when I figured out that I couldn't tolerate foods that were high in fructose.

If you buy local honey, check to be sure of where it was processed.  I had some trouble with honey I bought and had not checked to see if they process it in their personal kitchen.

Definitely organic, yes.

 

Processed in their personal kitchen seems like a bad idea, the possibility of cc, is that what you mean? I'm going to look for something as local as possible but from a health food store where I can find a brand that says gluten-free on the label. I don't think I could trust anything "homemade" by anyone but me.
