Honey crystallization: a natural process
Crystallization is one of the best identities of authentic raw honey. It is a natural process and not a sign of adulteration or spoilage. The main reason for crystallization is (f/g) fructose/glucose and the (g/w) glucose/water ratio. If honey has high f/g and low g/w, then it will slow down crystallization and if glucose is high then crystallization will be fast. It all depends on the honey’s source of nectar and the flora that the bees have foraged.
Crystallized honey can be consumed so we strongly recommend using crystallized raw honey in the same form, without any heat treatment.
No antibiotics & sugar
We procure all our honey varieties from wild forest beehives where the bees are not treated with antibiotics or fed sugar syrup.
Varied honey texture, colour, and taste
The texture, colour, and taste will change between different batches in the same variety of honey as well.
Texture can be dependent on the floral source. Color can also be affected by age as honey generally gets darker with age and another factor is the crystallization process. Honey generally appears lighter when crystallized.
Pure raw honey straight from a hive is full of unique flavor notes based on its region and season.
