A group of researchers from Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia conducted a study on a unique green colored honey, called ‘Borneo green honey’. The honey is produced by bees native to Banggi Island, off the coast of Kudat, Sabah.
The new data on the Banggi Island green honey showed that the nutritional uniqueness of the honey over other local honey, as well as Manuka honey from Australia and those produced in European and the Middle East countries.
The researchers found that the green color was due to the honey’s considerably high chlorophyll content, an attribute not found in other local honey such as Tualang, Gelam, and kelulut.
