Mildest Tasting Honey?
0

7 posts in this topic

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.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
