Things you need to know about honey

There is a big difference in raw unfiltered honey and honey that has been filtered. More than 70% of honey that you can buy in a supermarket is not real honey. Most of the honey sold has been filtered and modified and has lost its benefits and nutrition value. Due to the pasteurizing process honey loses natural pollen in it which contains all the minerals and vitamins, as well as other nutritional and health benefits. Pollen is a powdery substance found in male flowering plants that bees collect during the process of gathering honey and is an important ingredient of honey.

Filtered honey may contain fructose syrups that have been made from genetically modified corn and could actually harm your health. When buying honey you need to consider the country of origin as well, for example honey that has been mass-produced and exported from China or any other country may have non-organic additives mixed into the honey to prolong its shelf life. Raw and unfiltered honey will always be the best choice, if you want to enjoy its many health and nutrition benefits.
