Nowadays, pure honey and active honey are really beneficial terms to know. It is extremely…
Raw honey and organic honey.
We use both raw honey and organic honey constantly in our everyday lives, not only as a nutritional product but also in medicines, treatments and beauty products. But still, many of us lack the knowledge of this golden liquid and the benefits it contains.
What is organic honey and how is it different from regular honey?
Organic honey is the honey produced from the pollen of organic plants, without any chemicals in it.
It comes from bee hives that are 5-8 miles away from anything chemical like roads, factories etc.
Of course the flowers around these areas, that the bees are flying to, must be chemical free and organic.
A good way to separate organic honey from regular honey is of course by its organic certification. However,
raw honey and regular honey are two different things. Organic labeled honey does not always mean raw or minimally processed,
except if it says so. It needs to be labelled both raw and organic in order to be sure it is pasteurized – free or filtrated free.
What is raw honey and its benefits?
Raw honey is the honey that comes directly from the bee hives, which means it is the most pure and natural honey.
Unlike regular honey it is not pasteurized, but instead it is extracted from the honeycombs of the hive and then
it is laid on a cloth to separate the honey from impurities (as beeswax).
- Raw honey is more nutritious
- It contains bee pollen
- It does not contain extra sugars or sweeteners
Why regular markets do not sell it?
Due to the fact that raw honey crystallizes quickly, uninformed customers stop purchasing it
because they believe that is has sugar added into it, as a result super markets do not sell raw honey.
Which one should I buy and why?
We believe that raw or raw organic honey is the best choice because it is close to pure and natural honey without
any sugar or sweeteners added into it while keeping the most valuable nutrients.
