Langnese Honey

#SunshineInEveryServing: Langnese Honey

Germany’s No. 1 Langnese Honey is now in the Philippines

I think most people know that real honey has a lot of health benefits. I remember when my kids got a year older, their pediatrician recommended that I put honey in their water to boost their immunity as well as encourage them to drink more water.

Looking back, I wonder if what I gave my children were pure unfiltered honey. Because when Dr. Cleofas Cervancia, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus at UP Los Baños, shared the results of UPLB’s Bee Program’s physicochemical analysis of commercial honey from selected supermarkets in Metro Manila, out of 39 samples (ie. 14 local brands and 25 imported brands) only two (2) samples passed the European Union Directive (EU Directive 110/2001). Whoa!

The samples were tested for moisture content, pH, electrical conductivity, reducing sugars, apparent sucrose, and HMF or Hydroxymethylfurfural.  HMF determines if the honey is subjected to overheating and stored poorly. Therefore, adulterated or low quality honey is high in moisture content, high HMF, and high apparent sucrose.

So when Fly Ace Corporation launched Langnese Honey last week, we really learned a lot about how our honey should be. Langnese is an old brand in Germany, which many households had been using.

Honey is considered one of nature’s sweetest gifts from nectar that’s collected by bees and naturally broken into simple sugar. With the constant fanning of the bees’ wings, evaporation takes place in the unique design of the honeycomb that produces the thick, syrupy liquid we now know as honey. Interestingly, the color and flavor of honey is an indicator of its type of flower nectar collected by bees, thus leaves consumers with more flavor options.

Here are five facts that make Langnese Honey a game changer, rebooting your appreciation for high-quality honey:

1. Highest quality and purity since 1927. Langnese Honey is a family-owned brand for nine decades; it is also a reputable market leader with a seal of approval from Germany’s Honey Ordinance and European Standard Basic Principles that strictly requires the safest and unadulterated quality. Meaning, it should be raw, unfiltered, and residue-free, with a limit of between 16% – 21% water content only. With Langnese Honey, it doesn’t only surpass these requirements, its name is a seal of guarantee that nothing is added nor removed from it!

2. No short cuts and no compromise. Ever wondered what makes Langnese Honey truly satisfying? Its serious commitment to quality and purity puts a premium importance on selection and processing, market analysis, coupled with direct and long-standing relationship with the beekeepers in the countries of origin. Much more, it also boasts a plethora of certifications from International Featured Standards (IFS) Kosher, and Halal that are true marks of its reliable source.

3. Pollen-packed and certified safe. Did you know that when a honey comes back negative for pollen test, it’s a sure sign of ultra-processing? That shouldn’t be the case, according to the makers of Langnese Honey Fürsten – Reform’s Export Manager Mark Baumgärtner, “Absence of pollens in the honey means there’s no way to determine whether the honey came from legitimate and safe sources, as verified as well by the German Honey Directive and World Health Organization. Langnese Honey mindfully takes into account the latest scientific findings using modern technology and unfiltered process that effectively determines the origin and type of honey.”

4. Chic and convenient. Featuring a honey dispenser technology famously known as “Bee Easy”, this chic and convenient packaging is also guaranteed no drip and no stickiness in every serving. Available in 250 g and 500 g PET dispensers, it’s also well loved by kids who find fun and enjoyment with their food. What’s more, you can take delight as you please, as its five yummy flavors might be the best you’ve ever tasted.

5. Five decadent flavors for all types of fete and feasts. Aside from Langnese Honey’s credible process and source, there’s none quite like its well-balanced, rich, and golden flavors that’s arguably highly nutritious! Considered a staple for its subtle and mildly sweet taste, Acacia is the ultimate breakfast companion that lends character to teas, cereals, and desserts. Golden Clear on the other hand, offers a sweet antidote to dips, salads, cocktails, and hot drinks, or to just about anything. Meanwhile, cooks and foodies can never go wrong with Black Forest that’s surely a luscious ingredient from the straightforward to the flashy recipes. While Wild Flower is pretty much suited for sweetening all types of food and beverage, it makes breads and pastries tastier and way healthier instead of refined sugar. Last but not the least, Lavender is also lovely for sweetening all types of beverages like tea and is a luscious spread on breads.

Five Best Runner-Friendly Places in the Philippines

5 Best Runner-Friendly Places in PH

Happy New Year! :)

Let’s start the year right by paving the way to fit and wellness. To begin, let me share with you five best runner-friendly places in the Philippines.

Running is one of the best and easiest ways to exercise while enjoying the outdoors. The interest of Filipinos in running paved the way for different groups to organize running events in various cities in the country. And with the creation of newbie-friendly categories and rules in races, even people who don’t run for fitness are being enticed to join running events for fun and to bond with family and friends.

Truth is, you can run anywhere, anytime, but there are certain places in the Metro that seem to be made for running, from ideal layouts to great views. Here are some of the top places Myproperty.ph have gathered:

1. Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig City

Bonifacio Global City is one of the most high-end neighborhoods around the Metro, and it is here that you can spot different events day in or day out. But aside from restos, clubs, and big events, BGC is also top of mind when it comes to running. The place is often a venue for different marathons and other running events. The entire BGC is so runner-friendly, you can actually run anywhere, but there are certain tracks that are created for the comfort and convenience of avid runners.

1a. Terra 28th
Location: 28th St. Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City

Terra 28th is more of a kid-friendly playground with running tracks. Located in the 28th St., there are different things that kids can enjoy here like seesaws, swings and some of the favorite Pinoy outdoor games like patintero, luksong baka and piko.

1b. Track 30th
Location: 30th St. Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City

This is by far the most popular go-to place for adult runners. A park designed for fitness buffs, it has a jogging path, yoga and exercise lawn, fitness art, and a meditation garden with interactive art installations made of recycled materials.

2. Marikina City

From food selections such as a meatloaf dish called everlasting to retail favorites like shoes, the city of Marikina has a lot to offer. But now, it is also gaining popularity as a fitness center for its citizens.

2a. River Park, Marikina
Location: Sta. Elena, Marikina, Luzon, Philippines

Marikina River Park offers jogging and bike paths available for use by health-conscious residents. There are actually groups of people that get together for regular exercise activities in the area.

2b. Marikina Sports Center
Location: Corner of Shoe Avenue and Sumulong Highway Sto. Nino, Marikina

With an entrance fee of only 10 pesos, you can run on a 400-meter track that is open for 24 hours (granted there are no other events happening in the center). Marikina Sports Center also[j1]  known as Marikina Sports Complex, Rodriguez Sports Center or Marikina Sports Park is[j2]  one of the most complete sports facilities in the country, with areas like a soccer field, basketball court, table tennis area, badminton court, volleyball court, lawn tennis court, Boxing Ring, and more.

3. Quezon City
Location: University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, Quezon City 1101, Metro Manila, Philippines

Located in University of the Philippines Diliman in Quezon City, the Academic Oval (or Acad Oval) connects the rest of the colleges of the university from the main University Avenue. With a total circumference of about 2.2 kilometers, it is hub for many athletic activities including running and biking.

4. Pasig City
Location: PhilSports Arena, Pasig City

4a. PhilSports Arena

The PhilSports Arena is known as ULTRA (University of Life Theater and Recreational Arena) back in the days. The complex features a 400-meter oval clay surface track and has lockers and showers.

4b. Capitol Commons
Location: Capitol Commons, Pasig City

Not really the most expansive running spot in the metro but it makes up for the location. You can run leisurely in the vicinity anytime. There are paths for pedestrian that ensures the safety of pedestrians, runners and bikers.

Real Leaf Paparazzi

It was my son, Gabo (in the picture), who actually introduced us to Real Leaf. He came home one day from school and happily shouted, “Mom, I have a new discovery!” (This is our household expression when any one of us discovers something—may it be food, drink, game, show, etc.) And showed a bottle of Real Leaf. “You should taste it. It’s yummy!” He then poured each one of us a 1/4 cup.

Real Leaf is yummy indeed. It is unlike the other iced tea drink in the market. It is more savory, and you can taste real tea in it. It is also made healthier because it is green tea.

Since then, it has become a regular drink for us. We love the honey apple flavor! It is best paired with our favorite nachos or chips. TV and board games time are never complete without a Real Leaf drink and our fave play chow. 😉

Real Leaf Green Tea is made from 100% whole green tea leaves that’s naturally packed with Theanine, and has a delicious hint of fruit and honey. You know it’s good for your mind and body.

Yummy, Healthy Quaker Oats Cookies

My officemates and I first saw this in 7-11. Curious, we picked all the three flavors, bought them, and yum! The cookies are just right: not too sweet, not too chewy, and of course ‘oatmeally.’ :)

I’m glad that there are more and more health food (and drink) out there now.

One pack contains three cookies, and costs only php10.oo. Isn’t it cool?
