Raw honey has small amounts of bee pollen, bee propolis, polyphenols, and minerals like potassium, calcium, niacin, riboflavin, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. This means it’s healthier to consume and make it a valuable addition to your diet!
Honey contains natural sugars (mainly glucose and fructose). In raw honey, sugars will bind together and begin to form little crystals, which can start making your honey harder. As different kinds of honey have different proportions of sugars, some will begin to crystallize faster than others and with a different texture.
Unlike regular or pasteurized honey, raw honey does not go through the pasteurization and/or filtration process. In regular honey, the filtration process that gives it that clear, consumer-friendly look and runny, drizzle-able texture also strips the honey of most of its beneficial by-products like pollen, antioxidants, and enzymes. To get the full benefits out of your honey, purchase local, unpasteurized Raw Honey.
