Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Raw Honey Review (Fair Trade)

Editor rating

4.7/5 on October 4, 2015


Wholesome Sweeteners is a neat company focused on bringing alternative sweeteners such as raw honey, agave nectar and organic sugar to market.  Their Organic Fair Trade Raw Honey is quite tasty and authentically raw!  It comes mostly from farms in southern Mexico which are responsibly farmed from a cooperative of Mayan beekeepers so you're helping the bees and the beekeepers with every sweet bite!  Read my Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Raw Honey Review below for more info.


I’m not a particularly sentimental person. To be honest, I would have to admit that at times I can be downright insensitive. However, this honey and more particularly the cause behind it really gets me jacked up!

If you don’t read anything else I’ve written, please read this:

I’ve bought Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Honey on many occasions. I’ve noticed the “fair Trade label on the jar, but it wasn’t until I was preparing for this review that I got really excited about this honey. It’s not often that you have a chance to affect someone else’s life simply by making a purchase, but this is one of those chances. I’m not going to write a lot more about that, but I would highly encourage you to watch the video on this page.

Oh and please, do me a favor if the video impacted you. Leave me a comment. I would LOVE to discuss this important issue with anyone who cares!

You’ll be pleased to know that if you are inspired by the information above and want to do something good while you shop that you won’t have to compromise on taste or quality! This honey has a fantastic flavor and has been one of the staples in my pantry for some time. It has a really multi-layered, interesting sweetness about it that really does resemble butterscotch.

In addition, its organic. Yes, there’s ongoing debate about how you could possibly keep bees from foraging on only organically grown plants, but in this case it’s believable because the honey is sourced literally in the middle of nowhere hundreds of miles from any organized farming, factories and other contaminants in a place that’s about as close to living off the land as you could get.

It’s also handled with minimal processing resulting in a relatively solid consistency which is the source of the most frequent complaints from other consumers, but in my opinion exactly how it should be.

My only gripe is to question why, with all the good this honey does, would Wholesome Sweeteners not choose to put their product in a more environmentally responsible container? Surely they could find a way to reliably pack their product without using plastic. That said, I love this honey, and more than that I love the way I feel when I buy it. Totally recommended!

Who Should Buy This:

Honey lovers who want responsibly sourced products that give back to the 3rd world communities they come from will love consuming a product that doesn’t offend their conscience or their taste buds!

    Hello. Why? I am not sure. I have seen it once before, but I have not seen powdered sugar, which is a requisite in this recipe. The Wholesome brand is vegan. Thank you for the suggestion.
