Does Capilano heat treat honey?

Capilano Honey has been committed to maintaining the highest quality standards for the past 60 years and we employ global best practices through all stages of the supply chain.

We do not actively heat treat honey, unless it is a legal requirement of the region it is being distributed to by law. For example, The Western Australian Department of Agriculture requires honey sent to this region to be heat treated to protect against a specific bee disease bacteria. This bacterium affects bee larval health and has no impact on humans.

To pump honey into consumer packs, as per industry standards, we gently warm our honey in order to filter and liquefy the product, thus removing naturally occurring crystals which gives the honey a sustained liquid life.

The minimal, gentle warming undertaken to liquefy the product does not impact the quality and it remains a 100% pure natural product. Capilano can undertake sugar analysis testing to illustrate that the honeys natural and nutritional properties are conserved.
