🐝Raw honey comes straight from the beehive.
It is made by extracting honey from the honeycombs of the hive and pouring it over a mesh or nylon cloth to separate the honey from impurities like beeswax and dead bees.
Raw Honey is then poured into jars and ready to be enjoyed.
The major difference between the raw honey and the regular honey is due to the pasteurization and filtration.
During the process of pasteurization, honey is heated at a very high temperature for the purpose of killing the yeast. With this process, honey does not become granulated and thus appears more attractive for customers to buy. Most of the honey manufacturers also remove the essential pollen from honey to get a clearer texture.
Some manufacturers may even add sugar or sweeteners to processed honey to reduce costs.
The raw honey contains bee pollen and other nutrients in the unaltered state as it doesn’t undergo any chemical treatment.
Raw honey is rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidant compounds and beneficial enzymes that allow for proper calcium absorption, effective carbohydrate assimilation, probiotics for friendly bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.
It has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties used throughout the ages to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and aid digestive functions.
Say goodbye to processed honey, say hello to raw honey.
