Both of our honey suppliers, Bastin’s Honey Bee Farm and Wildflower Ridge Honey have clarified some of the questions we have had regarding the labeling of RAW HONEY vs. PURE HONEY. After a few questions and answers, we have learned the following: The only difference is the labeling at the current time.
Both honeys are made using the same process. The honey is NOT filtered, heated, or blended; those processes would remove the minerals, pollens, enzymes, and antioxidants that we are looking for. The honey IS strained to remove excess particles that come with the hive (comb, wax, propolis, bees, etc).
Both distributors produce honey direct from nature by way of the beekeeper. The honey basically goes from the hive to the jar and is considered a clover/wildflower/summer blossom honey.
