Raw vs Processed Honey
Raw honey is unprocessed, unpasteurized, comes straight from the honeycomb. Unlike pasteurized honey raw honey bypasses commercial processing methods. As a result raw honey retains beneficial components linked to impressive health benefits. Aside from its rich taste raw honey is rich in nutrients packed with amino acids, flavonoids, minerals, and enzymes.

Raw honey retains bee propolis packed with B vitamins, vitamins C and E, magnesium, potassium, and beneficial enzymes. Propolis has anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antifungal properties.
Raw honey bypasses pasteurization and retains the antioxidants. Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress and, as a result, may have anti-cancer effects.
Raw honey does not contain added sweeteners or other additives. Raw honey is entirely made of honey from the beehive with no other ingredients.
