Why Choose Raw Honey?
Raw honey is simply natural honey as it is sourced from nature.
Recently, the Palynology Research Laboratory at Texas A&M University tested 60 honey products from supermarkets and grocery stores and found that 76% contained zero trace of pollen. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) maintains that honey products that have been "ultra-filtered", as these have, are not actually honey and therefore any such health benefits of honey cannot be assumed.
According to nationally recognized author and nutritionist, Dr. Josh Axe, commercial honey is often heavily processed and may be chemically refined. He also notes that the filtering process, which involves excessive heat, destroys the natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals in honey. Filtering and processing eliminates many of the beneficial phytonutrients including pollen and enzyme-rich propolis. The only way to achieve sparkling clear honey is by heat, so avoid the golden syrup-like honey in favor of opaque organic raw honey.
Raw honey is a concentrated source of natural goodness. Benefits include:
Best of all, it's simple. Honey does not need special storage or refrigeration – enjoy it by the spoonful straight from the jar.
