What is Raw Honey?
Raw is exactly that – honey that has not been treated in any way. It is taken from the hive in frames designed to hold honey, spun with centrifugal force, drained through a fine sieve to remove any wax particles and bottled.
The honey found in supermarkets is often pasteurised (heated to 70oC or higher). This is done commercially so that the honey looks smoother and cleaner; it is easier to handle and package, and more importantly stays at a runny consistency.
Raw honey will always crystallise within a few months after being harvested from the hive. This has no impact on the product whatsoever, other than giving it a thicker texture. Actually, raw honey tastes better, as heating denatures the fine natural aromas and enzymes.
Raw honey has a lot of health benefits as it is high in antioxidants, so it’s great for people with a common cold or sore throat, and when taken daily can assist those suffering from bad hay fever. It can even be applied externally on wounds to promote quicker healing.
