Is your honey crystallized or not?
In the period from June to October, honey is in an uncrystallized state. We do not melt crystallized honey, as it may lose some of its beneficial properties. You can melt it yourself at your discretion simply by placing it in a container of warm water.
Which honey is healthier liquid or crystallized?
If the honey has not been heated more than 50°C (122°F), then both types of honey will be equally useful.
Is your honey heat-treated or pasteurized?
No, we never melt or pasteurize honey in order to preserve all the beneficial properties in it. Storage temperature is about 20°C (68°F)
What happens if you melt honey by heating it over 50°C (122°F)?
At temperatures above 50°C, bactericidal properties and honey aroma are lost. Heating above 60°C (140°F) reduces the activity of enzymes, and at 80°C (176°F), fructose begins to break down.
Is there any way to melt honey so that it does not lose its beneficial properties?
Glucose crystals dissolve at 40°C (104°F). The honey mass should be heated to this temperature or slightly hotter. However, keep in mind that the heating of the product during the entire process should not exceed 50°C (122°F).
How can I melt honey at home?
Place the container with honey in a larger container filled with warm water from 40°C (104°F) to 50°C (122°F) and maintain this temperature until the honey acquires the desired consistency.
