Our Honey is all-natural. Never heated or filtered, just like nature intended.
Honey is a wonderfully sweet, thick liquid made by the honeybees. They collect the sugar-rich nectar from flowers and take it back to the hive where they store the nectar in the cells of their honeycomb. They dry it to a moisture level below 18%, creating a product that bacteria and mold cannot survive on. For this reason, honey stays relatively fresh and edible indefinitely.
The honey is stored by the bees, primarily as a food source for the winter months. The color and taste of the honey depends on the types of flowers the honeybees visited during their nectar collecting flights.
A tablespoon of honey contains about 17 grams of sugar, including fructose, glucose, maltose and sucrose and may be slightly better for persons with diabetes than processed sugars. It may also lower "bad" LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and inflammation while raising "good" HDL cholesterol.
Honey is known to contain high levels of antioxidants which have been linked to reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes and some types of cancer. Darker types of honey have been found to have higher levels of antioxidants than the lighter varieties. These antioxidants may lead to reductions in blood pressure, an important risk factor for heart disease. They may also help the arteries in your heart dilate, increasing blood flow help prevent blood clot formation, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
Topical applications of honey have been known to help cure wounds, burns, ulcers and lesions. It is believed that honey’s healing powers come from its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects as well as its ability to nourish surrounding tissue.
As you can see, honey is a terrific alternative to refined sugars but it's important to choose a natural, pure, raw honey that retains all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Lower quality honeys are often heated and filtered or adulterated with syrups that eliminate these benefits.

Why honey crystallizes...Ѕіmрlу рut, hоnеу іѕ а hіghlу соnсеntrаtеd ѕugаr (саrbоhуdrаtе) ѕоlutіоn. Турісаllу, іt соntаіnѕ mоrе thаn 70% саrbоhуdrаtеѕ аnd lеѕѕ thаn 20% wаtеr. Тhіѕ mеаnѕ thаt wаtеr іn hоnеу соntаіnѕ a much greater amount of ѕugаr thаn іt саn nаturаllу dіѕѕоlvе. Тhе оvеrаbundаnсе оf ѕugаrѕ mаkеѕ thе ѕоlutіоn unѕtаblе.

Returning crystallized honey to a liquid state, safely!
Heat water up on the stove to about 105 degrees Fand set a jar of crystallized honey into the water, maintaining that level of heat. Be sure not to overheat and destroy the precious enzymes and healthy benefits! You can stir the honey to help the process along. Do not let water get into the jar of honey, if you decide to remove the lid and stir. Never microwave your honey either, as a way to decrystallize! Always remember, crystallizing is natural and a great sign that it’s pure honey.
