What is raw honey ?
Ever since I started Healthy Buddha in 2014, I
must have explained about "Raw Honey" to thousands of people. The
queries and doubts became so much that, after a couple of years, I had to put
together the below article to educate people around Raw Honey. Check the
article below my email. You can also google about raw honey.
The thing with Raw Honey is that it tends to
crystallize in cold weather. Basically it solidifies into sugar crystals or
lumps (reason explained below). Those who are not familiar with this concept
tend to think it is an adulterated honey. Many of us grown up in the 80s and
90s are used to D** Honey or any commercial honey, which looks clean and flows
smoothly and has a certain sweet taste to it. Those who are experiencing Raw
Honey for the first time - especially the part of crystallization, easily
misunderstand and assume that we have sent adulterated honey.
So, over the years, we have been called many
names like "Cheater", "seller of adulterated products" etc.
In fact, most stores don't sell raw honey because of this reason. It is not
easy to educate and clarify to each customer. They sell only pasteurized honey
(this is devoid of most of the good stuff). But quite honestly, honey should be
consumed raw to get the right benefits. So we want to make sure that our
customers get to consume pure raw
honey even if we are called a few names along
the way! Recently we got a 'colorful' review on google rating for this specific
reason. So that prompted me to share the below on raw honey :-) If you are not
already familiar with it, hope you find it informative. http://healthybuddhamagazine.blogspot.com/2015/05/raw-honey.html
You can buy organic honey online from Healthy Buddha which is completely unadulterated and free of sugar and other preservatives.
