Honey Is Sold In Multiple Forms

Honey can be sold in multiple forms depending on how it was processed and packaged. Our honey is hand-packed and bottled which allows us to precisely control the temperature.

The Processing And Packaging

General information of different processes used in honey packaging and processing:

bee-hiveRaw Honey – Honey that retains the same composition as it existed in the beehive. Sometimes processed with minimal heat after extraction from the beehive and settling, or straining.

honey-dripFiltered Honey – A process that removes most pollen grains, air bubbles, and other fine particles that exist in raw honey. To be filtered, the honey is normally heated at 150 F – 170 F.

comb-slatStrained Honey – Honey is moved through a mesh material to remove small particles. Pollen, minerals, and enzymes remain after this process.

jar-whiteCrystallized Honey – Known as granulated or candid honey. Some of the honeys glucose is crystallized, then reheated later to a liquid state.

bee-flowerPasteurized Honey – The honey is heated to 161 F to destroy yeast cells. Side effects of this process are a darkening to the color, the removal of enzymes, changes of taste and it even affects the smell.

honey-combHoneycomb – This is where the actual beehive honeycomb is extracted from the hive and cut into pieces with the honey still in the wax comb.

flowerDried Honey – Results is the honey becoming completely solid, non-sticky granules, commonly used on desserts.

honey-wandWhipped Honey – This process is used to create a more spreadable product. Small crystals are created within the honey, instead of large crystals that are found in raw honey.

honey-barrelComb Honey – Pieces of comb honey are covered in extracted liquid honey.

honey-jarUltrasonificated Honey – Honey that is processed using ultrasonification. Destroys yeast cells, inhibits crystallization, and slows fermentation. Honey can be processed at 95 F.
