6. Frequently asked qustions

Finally, these are the questions we are often asked about this product:

  • Where should it be kept, in the fridge?

Honeycomb honey should not be kept in the fridge unless you have problems with ants. However, it should be kept in a cool place away from strange smells.

  • Can I eat the wax of the honeycomb?

You can swallow the wax, but it will be expelled, as it is not digested in the stomach. For this reason, I recommend spitting it out.

  • Is the wax inside raw?

Logically yes, it is the way the bees leave it, so it is not subjected to any treatment.

  • Is it sold in Carrefour, Mercadona, El Corte Inglés and other supermarkets?

We would probably only find this honey in specialised honey shops such as ours in Las Rozas de Madrid.

  • Do you supply the complete comb?

Yes, we can supply the complete comb on request.
