Madu kelulut : Stingless Bee Honey

Assalamualaikum all,

This is actually part of the new encountered in Keda Resort, Kampung Bendang Man, Sik, Kedah.  As we drove into and out of the resort we saw many of the below boxes. We were curious. What could that be. They must be breeding something but what is it??? Being the curious lot, I managed to snap a picture of the 'house' on my way out leaving the resort.

Alhamdulillah... being older and wiser, mak informed us that it was the breeding of 'kelulut', a type of bee but it is stingless. Apparently, these 'kelulut' are also prodicng honey just like its 'cousin' species the bees. The many boxes that we saw scattered around the resort actually housed the stingless bee that is waiting to be harvested. First time knowing about this, I made some research by just asking dear Uncle Google, and I found this interesting information.

Syamille Lebah Kelulut.

And just coming back from my sister's house in Dungun, Mak herself tasted the Stingless Bee Honey. It tasted just like honey. And it is supposed to have the same health benefits just like the known bee.

Quoting from the website: 
"honey and propolis products that are rich in anti-oxidants, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. The honey is light in color with delicious sweet & sour fruit taste. These honey and propolis are naturally suitable to cure illnesses through traditional treatment methods such as diabetes mellifluous, stroke, hepatitis, cancer, hypertension, kidney stones, gout, cough, etc. In terms of nutritional value and benefit, it is very much better than the normal honey."

This is an interesting facts findings for me and an option for the honey consumer.
