Below are some FAQ's regarding all things The BeeKeepers Honey, if you have other questions or queries, please email
The crystallisation of honey is a natural process and many assume that means the honey has been adulterated or 'spoiled', when in fact, it is quite the opposite. To find out more about this natural process, check out our post on it here.
Our “raw” honey has not been heated to the point of pasteurization (no higher than 48°C) meaning the naturally occurring enzymes, vitamins and minerals are preserved and you get the full benefits of them from eating raw honey. For more info on the difference between Pure, Raw and Creamed honey, check out our blog here.
The colour and flavour of honey differs depending on the nectar source (the blossoms) visited by the honey bees. Honey colour ranges from nearly colourless to dark brown, and its flavour varies from delectably mild to distinctively bold, depending on where the honey bees buzzed. For more info on this, check out our blog post here.
