While there’s no official definition for raw honey, the National Honey Board defines raw honey as the following*:
“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.”
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.
