Bariani Raw Honey, 1.1 lb
On the Bariani Olive Orchard in California, bees feed throughout the year on olive blossoms and wild flowers. The concentrated nectar of the flowers is allowed to remain pure and unheated, resulting in a gorgeous raw honey with particles and flecks of bee pollen and honeycomb. Finely textured crystals can be seen in the golden amber honey, and its flavor is delicate and floral. Unpasteurized and unprocessed.
Bariani Raw Honey - 100% Pure and Natural from California Wildflowers
Raw honey is buzzing with beneficial vitamins and nutrients, such as B vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and zinc. Honey also contains antioxidant polyphenols, which can help slow or reverse free-radical damage.
Honey has been used for centuries as both a food and a medicine for treating digestive ailments, skin wounds, sore throats, and coughs. It has an antiseptic and antibacterial action from a naturally occurring and slow-release process that produces hydrogen peroxide. When honey comes into contact with skin or wounds, the pH and sodium levels of the human body stimulates honey to activate the breakdown of glucose, releasing the hydrogen peroxide.
Honey has also been used as a beauty treatment for hair and skin. Honey is a very unique food, because of its composition and chemical compounds, honey (and objects immersed in honey) can be preserved for decades or even centuries. Sealed honeycombs found in the tombs of Egyptian Pharohs were found to still have edible honey inside of them thousands of years later.
How to Store Honey
To properly store honey, it should be protected from high heat. Temperatures higher than 98.6° can begin to cause the loss of nearly 200 beneficial componants within the honey, and temperatures over 104° can destroy invertase, an important enzyme in honey. Storing honey at room temperature (between 70 - 75°) is optimal. Heat and moisture are the two biggest enemies to your honey. Store raw honey in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight. Do not store in the refrigerator, even after opened.
Crystallization is a normal occurance for natural, raw honey.
