Why does buying raw, unfiltered honey make sense?

Honey is one of nature’s true wonder ingredients. Not only does it taste great but it is versatile enough to use in a number of recipes. Its naturally sweet taste also makes it an easy way to get children to eat something which is good for them. When you also factor in the many alternative uses for honey (such as medicinal or in face masks), then it gets even better.

With a lot of different types and brands on the market, you may think that all honey is created equal. This is not true though and it is unfiltered raw honey which is best. But why is this?

Purer and better for you

The simple truth is that natural honey is purer than artificial honey. This is down to the way unfiltered and raw honey is produced. Honey like this is naturally high in carbohydrates and low in water, which helps with the crystallisation process. Crystallisation in honey is a sign of true quality and gives a better taste/texture to the product. It is also tough for artificial honey to achieve. By not filtering honey as you extract it, you get a product that keeps more of the goodness and nutrition in.

Tastes better

By simply taking honey from the hive and using it in its raw state with no filtering, you get a product that tastes better. This is because no artificial preservatives or flavourings are added to spoil the taste. Organic raw honey tastes wholesome and comes with a depth of flavour which is second to none. However you use it in cooking, honey like this is just much nicer to eat.

Helps protect the planet

By only buying organic raw honey you are doing your bit to help the planet. We live in a time when this is more important than ever and people are looking for ways to do their bit. Buying organic raw honey is an easy way to achieve this. As organic honey uses no artificial fertilisers, treatments or practices, it is much better for the planet.
