What is ‘Raw Honey’?
Raw honey has not been significantly heated or filtered after extracting from the hive. Honey naturally contains traces of vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. It also contains antioxidants such as polyphenols, as well as enzymes and amino acids. The less you process honey the more likely you are to retain all this natural goodness.
Is Capilano honey 'raw'?
We have developed our raw honey range which contains honey that has only been strained to remove large particles of wax, and therefore retains all its natural goodness, including pollen. Delivered by our skilled beekeepers then packed with care, all we’ve done is add a label. Our raw honey may look slightly cloudy and may crystallise over time.
How can you be sure the honey is 'raw'?
There are a number of scientific studies that look at the effect that different honey processing and packing techniques can have on properties of honey. These studies look at the effect on sensory (aroma, colour and taste) and nutritional qualities of honey. The organic standard also specifies certain processing limitations in order to retain the quality of organic honey. While our raw and unfiltered honey is not organic, we have taken this information in conjunction with the findings of scientific studies, to inform our Raw & Unfiltered packing process. This way we can be sure that our minimal packing process ensures we retain as much of our raw honey’s inherent goodness as possible.
