Sweet Fact 2

If honey doesn't spoil, then why are there "Best Before" dates on it?

We put “best before” dates on our honey as a guideline to the retailers that are selling it, to help them track the product, and to keep the honey on the shelves as fresh as possible. While honey doesn’t spoil, liquid honey will granulate over a period of time. This does not affect the quality of the honey at all, although it changes its appearance. Most retailers will rotate their honey stock on the shelf but if you happen to have honey that is past the Best Before date, feel free to eat it; it’s absolutely safe to consume!
