    Difference between Dark Honey and Light Honey?

    Why is honey sourced from Illinois different from honey sourced in California? What’s the difference between dark honey and light honey?

    The physical properties of honey are dependent on the plants and flowers surrounding the hives.  So honey in California will have a different taste from honey gathered in Illinois because the plants will be different.  It is even possible, but not likely, for honey to be toxic if certain plants are grown withing the natural range of bees.  As for the difference between dark and light honey, I am not sure exactly what that is.  Except for the color, of course.

    mostly it's the types of plants that affect the color (and taste of course) for example out here in Arizona we have honey from hives that have been harvesting mesquite tree pollen. this honey is almost black in color when you buy it. it also has a much milder flavor then say orange blossom honey which is also very common here in Arizona. hope that helps answer your question.
