Honey produced by Indian stingless bee or dammar bee, Tetragonula iridipennis.
Specially used for Medicinal purpose.
Due to their small size, bees collect nectar from different medicinal plants ( Tulasi , Thumba , Black pepper and many more), though honey produced is of small quantity, they are highly medicinal.
“The honey of T. iridipennis is a rich source of antioxidant flavanoids. This is because workers collect honey from medicinally important herbal plants and flowers. The quantity of honey produced is a relatively small 600-700 grams per year. A study which compared the composition of T. iridipennis honey to those of other Indian bee species found the honey of T. iridipennis to have among the highest amounts of flavonoids and flavonols and displayed relatively high Nitric Oxide scavenging activity.”
