Celebrity Chef Rick Bayless Gets A Taste

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tasting the World's Best Honey just became easier – Wholesome Sweeteners sells it. Since 2008, Wholesome Sweeteners has sold the Fairtrade, Organic Honey of honey producers, Prodapys, and at the 2013 World Beekeeping Awards, this honey received the gold medal in its class.

Wholesome Sweeteners currently sells Fairtrade Organic Honey and Organic Raw Honey from Brazilian and Mexican beekeepers; Prodapys is one of them. The hives are nestled deep in the jungle where bees feast on the organic native flora. Since the bees have their pick of seasonal wildflowers, the honey's color and flavor deepen and evolve throughout the year.

This spring, Wholesome Sweeteners will visit Prodapys' hives to witness an organic honey extraction and tour the honey mill. They've invited fellow Fairtrade pioneer, James Beard award-winning chef, Rick Bayless, on the trip to meet the farmers.

"With Rick Bayless' inspiring advocacy for farmers through the Frontera Farmer Foundation and his ongoing support of Organics and Fairtrade, it was an easy choice for us to invite him. Like Wholesome Sweeteners, he epitomizes the farm-to-table philosophy and knows that supporting farmers yields great-tasting food," said Pauline McKee, Wholesome Sweeteners Co-Founder.

This trip complements Chef Bayless' existing relationship with Wholesome Sweeteners. He is a Featured Chef on their sugar packages and website, a distinction given to partnering chefs who create recipes using Wholesome Sweeteners products.

Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Honeys are widely sold across the U.S. Click here for full release and honey recipe.
