Watch | Have you tried Moringa honey?

Have you heard of Moringa honey? What makes this type of honey unique is its woody flavour.

N Dhandayuthapani is a 53-year-old farmer and beekeeper from the Cauvery delta region. For the past two decades, he has been growing moringa honey in Kurumbapatti.

His beekeeping enterprise produces five tonnes of moringa honey in Tamil Nadu and 12 tonnes in Karnataka per year.

How is the honey processed?
