What is Raw Honey?


Powerful Natural Superfood

Honey in its most natural form is raw - like nature intended it to be. Raw honey comes straight from the beehive and is taken from a single apiary. Thanks to its unique mineral, vitamin, antioxidant, amino acid, and enzyme content, it is a natural superfood. Raw honey is unprocessed, unpasteurized, and unheated, unlike the average honey you can find in grocery stores. As a result, natural honey is unmatched both in taste and nutritional value, and thus, it is far superior to regular processed honey.

Raw Honey vs Processed Honey

The average honey products found in mainstream grocery stores are usually ultra-filtered, pasteurized, and blended. Many manufacturers use high heat to eliminate yeast, improve the texture and colour of their products, and extend their shelf life. Unfortunately, these processes eliminate most of the minerals, enzymes and beneficial microorganisms found naturally in raw honey, significantly decreasing the value of this natural superfood.

Unlike average honey, raw honey is cold-pressed and is gently filtered by hand to remove impurities. Therefore it preserves its precious natural nutrients. Raw honey is loaded with vitamins C and B6, iron, calcium, thiamine, and other beneficial substances. In addition, it is high in antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer properties.



Health Benefits

Thanks to its unique content, people have used raw honey to supplement a healthy diet and as a powerful remedy in traditional medicine for thousands of years. For example, honey works well as a cough medicine and as a wound and ulcer healing balm. It also has a soothing effect on digestion. The benefits of raw honey are numerous, and you can enjoy them across our diverse collection.

Natural Crystallization

Another sign of raw honey is that it crystallizes as time goes by. Crystallization happens due to the natural process of glucose separating from the water. Some people perceive crystallization as an indication that honey has gone bad. However, it is the opposite. The crystallization process is a sign that your honey is natural, free from added syrups, and that the honey has not been heat-treated.
