Organic raw honey is the pure, unpasteurized, unprocessed, unheated, concentrated nectar that comes straight from the hive.
The YS Certified Organic Honey is harvested with extreme care, 100% pure, natural, unheated and unfiltered, fresh from healthy beehives.
The results produce a superior, energy packed honey with the highest possible levels of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, healing agents as a functional whole food.
Most honey found on the supermarket shelf is NOT raw honey but “commercial” honey, which has been filtered so that it looks clean and clear and more appealing to the consumer when on the shelf.
Processed honey has been pasteurized by heating at 70 degrees Celsius or more, followed by rapid cooling.
Characterised by fine textured crystals, raw honey looks milkier and contains particles and flecks made of bee pollen, honeycomb bits, propolis, and broken bee wing fragments.
Pasteurization kills any yeast cell in the honey and prevents fermentation. Consequently, when honey is heated, its delicate aromas, yeast and enzymes which are responsible for activating vitamins and minerals in the body system are partially destroyed.
Hence, raw honey is more nutritious than honey that has undergone heat treatment. In order for honey to be beneficial it has to be raw! There is no way it can deliver all its goodness to you if it’s been processed!
Raw and unfiltered honey is relatively low in moisture content (14% to 18%) and has a high antioxidant level. It will usually granulate and crystallize to a margarine-like consistency after a month or two. Many people prefer to make smoothies, spread it on bread and waffles, dissolve it in hot coffee or tea, or use it for cooking and baking.
Customer Reviews are Positive
I must say, this is truly the best honey that I have ever had. I almost want to sit on the couch with the jar and eat it like a snack, its THAT good!
“You can’t even compare!! I will never buy regular honey again! I actually just got it in the mail today and I’m already 4 spoons into the jar. Fast shipping too! “
Beware! It’s easy to get hooked on this honey. It has turned me into a honey snob, and I think I’ll be buying it for life. I love to pop the lid and inhale deeply–smells like a field of wildflowers.
“My cappuccino tastes so much better with this particular honey. The price is so affordable and much much cheaper than if I had to purchase this in a health food store. Amazon’s free super saver shipping speed is excellent. How can you go wrong.
