Raw honey is honey in its most natural form. It is processed very gently before reaching the consumer, which means that all the natural health-giving properties are kept right in the jar. It is packed with vital enzymes that help maintain a healthy digestive system and research has shown that raw honey doesn’t cause blood sugar to spike allowing a much healthier gradual increase.
Raw honey is great for our health and gives all the benefits, which strongly filtered, or ultra filtered, honey is devoid of. If a label bears the wording raw, it should have been subjected only to minimum processing and heat.
Our non pasteurised, cold extracted 100% pure raw honey retains pollen which may make it crystallise sooner than commercial ultra strained, heat treated honey.
