Honey - 30 lbs - (6) 5 lb tubs
Honey is loaded with minerals and nutrients — it’s even considered a superfood.
Some top benefits:
- Boosting immunity and fighting unwanted inflammation. A metastudy of 42 years of research found that honey can be an effective support for immunity and an anti-inflammatory. Making it an effective treatment for everything from diabetes to gastrointestinal diseases, respiratory issues like asthma, and more.
- Soothing sore throats, coughs, and colds. Researchers even found that a dose of honey was MORE effective at treating coughing than standard cold medicine.
- Helping heal burns and healing skin. Take advantage of its natural antibacterial properties, and use it on cuts, scrapes, and burns.
Honey is also a great sweetener to use in green smoothies (especially for those who suffer from allergies).
WHY YOU WANT TRULY RAW HONEY
How can you be sure you’re getting all the incredible health benefits of honey?
Choose honey that’s RAW. Other honeys have been filtered, heated, or pasteurized, or all three — removing many of the nutrients and beneficial healing properties.
And guess what? A lot of suppliers say their honey is raw, but they’ve actually heat-treated it.
HONEY IS FANTASTIC TO STOCK UP ON!
Be sure to add a good supply of raw honey to your long-term food storage. Raw honey NEVER goes bad. Though it may harden with time, this is normal and not an indicator of poor quality.
Note: This raw, wildflower honey is not certified organic because bees can range for several miles, possibly going into areas with sprayed plants. The beekeeper we work with doesn’t use chemicals on his property.
Some GreenSmoothieGirl recipes that use honey:
HOW LONG DOES RAW HONEY KEEP, AND HOW SHOULD I STORE THEM?
Honey is the most naturally stable food you can buy, thanks to the high amount of sugars. It literally NEVER goes bad.
Though it doesn’t spoil, you should still store it properly to preserve its taste and texture. You don’t want to keep honey in the refrigerator. Storing in your pantry or long-term food storage is a great idea. Keep it in glass jars in a cool location away from direct sunlight.
Be sure not to introduce moisture to your stored honey. Use a dry spoon because even a small amount of water can cause it to ferment.
Crystallized, or cloudy, honey that’s “turned to sugar” is not bad; you can still eat it. If that happens, here’s how to re-liquify it: place a jar with honey in a pan of hot water (not boiling) and stir while gently heating it. Be careful not to overheat it.
WHERE DOES THE HONEY IN THE GROUP BUY COME FROM?
The honey in our Group Buy comes from White Lake Farms in Utah.
The honey is pure and raw, so it maintains its natural health benefits, and the honey bees are raised with environmentally friendly practices.
The honey is harvested, not filtered. The company only uses a coarse mesh to remove large foreign materials (dead bees, wooden pieces, grass, etc.) out of the honey. It’s also not heated during processing; it’s extracted using cold extracting.
Plus, the honey isn’t pasteurized, because pasteurizing removes many of the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, as well as natural enzymes.
