Our Raw, Unheated Honey

IMG_9413

OUR HONEY IS UNHEATED:  Honey heated above 38 degrees Celsius starts killing natural enzymes created by the honeybees.  At 60 degrees Celsius, everything is dead and all that is left is a sugar substance with no antibacterial and antimicrobial health benefits.

Then why do they heat it?  To help make the honey flow through their processing systems more easily and to keep it in a liquid form on the store shelves.  Our honey is NEVER HEATED…NOPE, we will not do it!  The best way to know if your honey has been heated is, by placing it in a cold area.  If it does not start to crystallize, then chances are, your honey has been heated to a dead state 🙁

How does our honey get into the jars then?  Beagle decaps the honeycomb as soon as it is harvested and at the perfect natural bee temperature.  He then spins the honey out into a large vat, it is lightly sieved (to remove large pieces of beeswax) and then poured straight into the jars – that’s it!

NOTE:  If you purchase our honey and it is in a liquid form, this is due to the honey being freshly jarred from out of the comb (honeybee temperature).  As the honey gets cold, it will start to crystallize, making it easy to spoon out!

If you like your honey in a liquid form, simply place our jar into warm water in your kitchen sink.  This will gently melt the crystals without hurting the natural enzymes 🙂
