The Difference Between Raw Honey & Filtered Honey

At Local Hive, when we say our honey has “nothing added, nothing removed,” that means something. And, thanks to our beekeeper partners from all over the country, all of our honey is raw & unfiltered and made by local bees.

So why is this so important to us? Because we believe in the benefits of raw & unfiltered honey.

Filtered honey goes through a process where it’s heated then rapidly cooled. This is normally done to prevent it from becoming granulated and makes it smooth and uniform in color. However, the high heat kills most of the enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, removing many of the health benefits of raw honey.

Raw & unfiltered honey straight from a hive is considered to be a one of nature’s best and most nourishing foods with numerous health benefits. Benefits can include anything from an energy booster, to using as a sleep aid, to even soothing away a sore throat – just ask our own Honey Doctor and Author of The Honey Revolution, Dr. Ron Fessenden at honeydoctor@riceshoney.com.

We make sure Local Hive’s honey is 100% pure and 100% honey. Nothing is altered, preserving the natural nutrients in every bottle. So, the next time you’re at the store, look for raw & unfiltered honey and start enjoying what the nature in your area has to offer.
