About Bumble Bloom
What, honey isn’t vegan? Well no! For comparison, there is cow’s milk (meant for veal) and its alternative, plant-based drink (oats, almond, coconut, cashew etc.). Similarly, there is honey produced by bees (which they create for food), and its vegan alternative, bumble bloom™! We have made it our mission to offer a healthy, organic, honey-like product that people love, but without the negative impact on bee colonies.
Honey’s reputation as a natural and healthy product began in the 1960s, based on the image that beekeeping was in harmony with nature. In the 1970s, growing demand and foreign competition led beekeepers to feed bees high glucose corn syrup in order to extract and sell more and more honey.
So what’s wrong with that? Honey is more than just a consumer product! Bees produce it to feed themselves and support the hive for the winter. When their honey is extracted and replaced with a refined sugar substitute (junk food), the health of the colony is severely compromised. Without the pollination work of healthy bees, many of the foods we take for granted would simply not be available.
