Kahl Beeswax Grades

Free from peroxide and impurities, Kahl beeswax is obtained from the honeycombs of Apis mellifera, and is typically used to improve the texture of products.

Wax is formed by worker bees that secrete it from wax-producing mirror glands on the inner sides of the sternites. One bee colony contains 30,000-70,000 bees and produces up to 70-80kg honey, but only 500g wax per year. When beekeepers extract the honey, they cut off the wax caps from the honeycomb cell. The wax is then re-melted, filtered and poured into moulds. The hardened wax bricks are shipped to Germany to be further refined.
