Organic Natural Honey
Your honey might be certified Organic but that doesn’t mean it’s not pasteurised unless it states it’s ‘Cold Pressed’ or ‘Raw’. The EU guidelines are exactly what they say ‘Guidelines’. Certification can be very expensive, time-consuming and an ongoing process. Many keepers steer clear of it due to its bureaucracy and see it as just a profit increasing instrument and in essence, it almost near impossible to get true organic honey.
This is honey from the New Zealand/Australia Tea Tree. There are 1,700 tonnes produced annually but some 10,000 tonnes being consumed globally with 1,800 tonnes being consumed in the UK. Recent investigations have found that many labels claiming to Manuka actually do not contain the relevant amounts. In addition, there have been reports of turf wars and vandalisation of hives by competition. Also, just because it’s Manuka Honey it doesn’t mean it’s unpasteurized or not ultra fine filtered.
Raw/Cold Pressed Honey
