What is pasteurized and unpasteurized honey?

For pasteurized honey, we use a "flash heating" method, to minimize the amount of time that the honey is exposed to the heat and to reduce the risk of damaging or burning it. The honey is heated very quickly to about 160°F and then rapidly cooled, which will kill the yeast cells without damaging the product. This process is done on our production line during the packing procedure.

With unpasteurized honey, we warm it just enough to allow for easy bottling and straining. All of our honey is bottled warm, for maximum freshness and quality, filtered for cleanliness, and ready-to-eat!
