What is raw honey and why is important?
Raw Honey is made by bees from the nectar of flowering plants and is one of nature’s purest foods. This natural sweetener is considered a “functional food,” which means it’s a natural food with a myriad of health benefits. Rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes this delicious liquid gold has been part of our daily life since ancient times.
A few of the medicinal uses of honey are:
Treating seasonal allergies
Soothing sore throats & coughs
Easing digestive issues
Promoting a good night’s sleep.
However most of the honey sold in grocery stores today has been filtered, heat processed and often adulterated with high fructose corn syrup yielding a product with absolutely little nutritional value. On our farm, the raw honey is straight from the hive, keeping all of its valuable nutrients, enzymes and health benefits intact!
