If you never tasted raw honey, stop what you are doing and get some... Seriously! It is absolutely delicious! There are so many health benefits in raw honey. Have I also mentioned how good it is?

Common store bought honey is translucent, have you ever wondered why?

"Pasteurized foods go through a process of exposure to heat to kill any microorganisms in the product. Honey is pasteurized at 145 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. You will usually find pasteurized honey in stores, but you can find unpasteurized honey at farmer's markets or farms."

Standard honey is pasteurized. It even kills most of the vitamins and much of the nutritional value in the honey! Some honey may appear non-translucent BUT still be pasteurized so make sure you read labels! They do this by mixing regular liquid honey and honey crystals so it gives it a cream texture instead of the drippy texture. Raw honey is also not as sticky, but mind you, it still is!

Benefits of Raw Honey:

One of the major benefits of raw honey is that it's nature's own multivitamin. Vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and Vitamin C are found in raw honey. It also contains minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, and phosphate.

Raw honey has been used to treat viral and bacterial infections in the body and even help treat the common cold!

It can treat acne in days! No joke! Apply raw honey to your face every night (yes its sticky!) and rinse in the morning. For a skin glow, add some to your face wash, or use it by itself. You can mix in some sea salt and make a nice facial scrub for pores.

When raw honey is combined with ginger root it creates a cure/medicine to food poisoning! Even the deadliest forms! Ginger root tea with a spoon or two of honey will help your digestive track, relieve nausea and calm nerves.

It will kill your sweet tooth in minutes! Simply eat a spoon of it and BAM! No more sugar cravings!

And it does so much more! (See side bar)

When Buying Raw Honey Remember:

  • Buying local is the best (especially for allergy relief!)
  • Organic is the next best
  • Raw honey is NEVER translucent
  • Avoid non-organic if you can as the bee's can carry pesticides
  • There are many different flavors to honey, so find which one you like most
  • Buying online is usually cheaper then buying in store
  • A little goes a long way
  • Honey stored in glass is always better
  • DO NOT feed to a baby under the age of one

(Raw honey is NEVER translucent. It is a milky gold to yellow color)

      Thanks for your comment JamiJay! I am not sure where to buy it (local harvest) locally where I live so I buy mine from - its almost half the price it is at our local organic food mart.

      I try to avoid sugar as much as possible (and honey, even raw has a lot of sugar content) but you have intrigued me (along with a lot of info I have stumbled upon) If I ever cook up some protein/granola bars and need something sticky, I think I am going to purchase some raw honey!

      (FYI: I'm not sure about other states/cities, but here in Rutland Vermont, you can actually buy raw honey in the natural/organic foods section of the grocery store- and it's all local)!!

      I liked this hub, voted up and useful!

      Thanks for sharing!

      My grandfather's first cousin was a beekeeper, and his hives were on the family farm, so my grandmother had a supply of raw honey. She used to mix it with fresh churned butter, and put it on my biscuits in the morning. It was one the most delicious things I have ever eaten.
