Flow’s “honey on tap” harvesting technology allows for the honey flavours from individual nectar sources to shine through – much to the delight of honey connoisseurs. Consumers and apiarists are reporting that Flow harvested honey tastes better. Now a University of Queensland study has confirmed that you really can Taste the Difference.
The study recently published in the Science of Food and Agriculture found the Flow Frame extraction method yields honey with fresher, cleaner flavours than conventionally extracted honey.

The UQ scientists took two honeys harvested three different ways and performed taste tests.
University of Queensland taste-testing booths used red lighting to eliminate colour differences between samples enabling panellists to focus on the full flavour experience.
The honey, produced on Australian native yellow pea or macadamia flowers, was harvested using conventional methods in an electric centrifugal extractor or commercial extraction facility, or using Flow’s gentle 'honey on tap' harvesting technology.
Flow extracted honey scored lower for less desirable characteristics such as pungency and lingering aftertaste while scoring higher when it came to yummy floral, herbaceous and citrus flavours (bee-licious!).
Meanwhile, Flow Hive customers who have entered their honey into their local agricultural shows are reporting that they are winning medals and ribbons across the world.
How sweet is that?
