Unpasteurized pure honey that has not been heated or filtered is a good thing, for it offers many benefits.
Taste of Nature
Raw honey has a complexity and depth of flavor, not just sweetness. Different flower nectars will have different flavors, every sample of honey can potentially taste different. Flavors can range from floral, to fruity, to woody, to fresh, and everything in between.
Raw Honey Is Good for You
Raw honey has not been heated or filtered, it still has the pollen, propolis, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and beneficial enzymes found naturally in honey.
Raw honey has health-promoting antioxidants and polyphenols which help prevent disease. Raw honey can also
strengthen the immune system,
lower blood sugar levels and contribute to weight loss if it replaces sugar,
help digestive issues,
heal a sore throat,
give good energy,
promote good sleep,
heal skin wounds and infections,
soothe skin and acne (applied topically)
Does Honey Go Bad?
Raw honey doesn’t spoil, nor does it need to be pasteurized to be safe to eat. It will crystallize over time, but this is not a sign of spoilage–it just means the texture has changed.
