The difference between raw honey and commercial honey
Raw honey in its crude form is immediately taken out of the cells of honey combs. It commonly contains pollen and propolis, which have numerous health benefits. This honey is completely unfiltered and has not been heated above 95 degrees F. It is not pasteurized and is free from any additives. Commercial honey is heavily processed, contains additives and in most cases it has been chemically refined. It has been excessively heated killing all natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals. The filtering process eliminates beneficial nutrients including pollen and propolis.
What to look for when shopping for honey
Pure, raw and unfiltered honey will granulated. This is how you can tell whether or not your honey has been processed or not. Granulation does not mean your honey is bad, it just tells you that your honey is unprocessed. You can easily reverse the granulation process by simply placing the container of honey in warm water. The key to this process is warm water, NOT hot water which as stated above can eliminate some of the benefits of your honey.
