Raw Honey: What’s the difference?

About Raw Honey

Raw honey is the debate of “heat” to produce a natural product that has all of its original enzymes and nutrients. The viscosity of honey is such that it flows like a wave of sticky jello at 85-90 degrees, its hard to get a wide wave to flow into a small jar opening. So honey packers heat their centrifuge so the honey will flow into pipes then through filters and finally a small controlled stream into the honey jar. WE DON’T ADD HEAT TO OUR EXTRACTER (centrifuge)!

HOWEVER, there are claims that if honey is heated over 90 degrees that it is no longer ”raw”. At different locations in North America, (Florida, Utah, Arizona) the recorded ambient temperature be it 30 minutes or 4 hours has been as high as 115 degrees. Three degrees hotter and the wax will melt. So we conclude that raw honey is honey that heat has not been added higher than the NATURAL ambient temperature of a bee hive.

Unfortunately there is no agency or government regulation that can be followed to  qualify a product as raw honey. As a beekeeper of 30 years I have decided to define EXACTLY the definition of raw honey that is found in NATURE: Raw honey has not been heated over 115 degrees F. We sell “naturally certified” raw honey. Phone 580 889 6486
