Title: Verified unheated honey for newbie
Post by: primal tyler on July 16, 2019, 07:26:16 pm
As I transition from raw zc towards an omnivorous diet, I plan to include honey and fruit. I have been weary of eating honey as I understand most advertised as unheated are actually lying. Has anyone tried these brands and/or verify them as being unheated?

Honey Pacifica, heavenly organics, wee bee honey, honey in the rough (moorland apiaries), really raw honey

Unfortunately, the only honeycomb I am able to access is imported from Hungary (it is called Savanah bee company acacia honeycomb) and I am afraid it may be been heated or irradiated due to importation law.

Please let me know!

I been using YS honey for years and yet I still don't know what YS stands for. It is raw and is the cheapest one I can find. I also find it has a lot of medicinal properties similar to maluka honey. Though I can't remember the last time I had any. It's been a while. Oh. I remember now. It was a few weeks ago when I was whipping up egg yolks and berries!

They lie because it is extremely labor intensive and expensive for them to hand pack the honey directly from the comb.

Aajonus removed ys organics from his recommended brands as he later found out they heated their honey during packaging

I don't consider AV a credible source of information. Has anybody else confirmed that?

I used to think that  honeycomb was always raw if not placed into a jar before sale. I would nowadays never trust honeycomb imported from abroad, but local honeycomb seems fine to me.

the problem with honeycomb is the method of cutting smaller pieces out of the whole piece. and for that cutting presses are used where the edges are heated so they can cut through easier. then  you cant call it raw anymore. best is to get it from a small bee keeper that cuts it by hand
