Taste a Walk on the Wild Side.

Bee meets wildflower. They spend quality time together. Then the magic happens — raw, 100% pure honey that preserves the natural, naked goodness of their beautiful union.

So naturally, we call it Naked Wild Honey.

There’s not a better way to describe this pure wildflower honey — sourced ethically and produced carefully by a select group of beekeepers. A wholesome product strained and gently processed to retain natural pollen and enzymes. And once you have your first taste, savoring the full-bodied flavor and aroma, we think you’ll agree.

Drizzle it on toast, biscuits, cereals, muffins or fruit. Swirl it into teas, coffee, smoothies, dressings and marinades. But that’s just a start. Let your imagination go wild. Naked wild, that is. Pure. Raw. Unfooled with.

Now, it’s time to enjoy, compliments of wildflowers and the bees that love them.

While there’s no official definition for raw honey, it is generally described as honey that is simply and minimally processed. And that’s exactly what Naked Wild Honey offers. Unlike standard honey, which is heated and filtered to remove air bubbles, wax particles and pollen grains, Naked Wild Honey is strained to preserve natural pollens and warmed just enough to help liquefy the solid honey crystals while protecting the natural enzymes, flavor and aroma present in the honey.

  • 100% pure raw honey
  • Filled with natural pollen and enzymes
  • Sweet, full-bodied flavor and aroma
  • Made from bees foraging wildflowers

WHERE’S OUR ORGANIC RAW HONEY SOURCED?

Naked Wild Organic Raw Honey is made by millions of tireless honeybees, gathering nectar on countless trips to Brazilian wildflowers. We partner with only the very best Brazilian beekeepers, who work just as tirelessly to keep their hives healthy and producing honey. These carefully selected beekeepers then naturally and gently harvest the honey, assuring that you enjoy the finest organic wildflower honey that Brazil has to offer.

Brazil is one of the world’s leading producers of organic honey. That’s because Brazilian honey is produced largely from Africanized bees — a more aggressive and disease-resistant subspecies of honeybee. This resistance means Brazilian beekeepers can produce honey without the use of pesticides and antibiotics. Naked Wild Organic Raw Honey is derived from two distinct regions of Brazil — the arid Northeast region, which produces a lighter-colored honey more delicate in flavor, and the more tropical southern region that produces a darker honey with a noticeably robust flavor.

Naked Wild Organic Raw Honey is True Source Certified™— a voluntary system of origin traceability for participants wishing to demonstrate through an independent third party that their sourcing practices are in full compliance with U.S. and international trade laws.

FAQs

What is raw honey?

The National Honey Board defines raw honey under Forms of Honey (see page 3).

"Raw Honey: Honey as it exists in the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling or straining without adding heat.

8a. Commercially Raw Honey: Honey as obtained by minimum processing. This product is often labeled as raw honey."

Is Naked Wild Honey a raw or minimally processed honey?

Naked Wild Honey is strained instead of filtered to preserve natural pollens, and warmed just enough to help liquefy the honey crystals while protecting the natural enzymes, flavor and aroma. With minimal processing, Naked Wild Honey brings pure, easy-to-pour honey to your table.

What enzymes are present in Naked Wild Honey?

Diastase and invertase.

Is this honey pasteurized?

No.

Does Naked Wild Honey contain pollen?

Yes, natural pollen has been retained in this product.

Will this honey crystallize or become solid?

It is perfectly natural and likely for pure raw honey to crystallize over time. If it does solidify, simply place the container in warm water and gently warm until the honey returns to its liquid form. Do not refrigerate. Do not microwave in plastic container.

My Naked Wild Honey has crystallized. Can I get a replacement?

Because honey in its natural state will crystallize or solidify, it is our policy to not replace honey that has crystallized. In fact, crystallization is more likely to occur in raw and minimally processed honey products like Naked Wild Honey. Honey is edible and enjoyable in its crystallized form and may be re-liquefied by placing the container in warm water until the honey returns to its liquid form. Do not refrigerate. Do not microwave in plastic container.

What type of honey is this and where does it come from?

Naked Wild Honey is predominantly made from wildflower nectar and thus would be considered a wildflower honey, which has a more robust, full-bodied flavor and darker color. Produced by carefully selected beekeepers, you will find our honey’s place of origin printed clearly on the label.
