Raw honey is unpasteurized honey. This honey is unprocessed and is directly stored in a jar after it is extracted from the beehive. It is "honey as it exists in the beehive, straight from the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling or straining without adding heat". It is generally free from chemicals and artificial preservatives, additives and colours.
There are two types of honey that are found in the market. Raw honey is extracted directly from the beehives and stored in bottles and jars which means that the natural nutrient content and beneficial properties are retained. While regular or processed honey undergoes a lot of processing after extraction which destroys the original nutrient content making it less beneficial for the human body. Thus, it is always better to opt for raw and unpasteurized honey over regular honey.
Processed or pasteurized honey is regular honey that undergoes several filtrations before it is stored in a jar. It may also contain added sugars, chemicals, preservatives and additives to increase the shelf-life. Most of the nutrients are lost during its processing, thereby making it less beneficial for the human body.
Raw honey is naturally made by honey bees. It is extracted directly from the beehives and stored in jars. It contains bee pollen and bee propolis which make it highly nutritious. The colour and taste of the honey may vary depending on the season, nectar and the type of flower from where it has been harvested.
No. Raw or unpasteurized honey does not require refrigeration. It can be kept at a cool place, away from direct sunlight in a tightly sealed container.
Since honey is sweeter than sugar, the thumb rule is 3/4th cup of honey for every one cup of sugar.
Honey can be stored intact in sealed containers for decades or centuries. However, during storage honey is susceptible to physical and chemical changes. It may tend to darken and lose its original aroma and flavour or even crystallize. Honey that is sold in the market or for practical purposes often states a shelf life of two years. If the honey is properly processed, packaged and stored, it retains its quality for a long time. If in doubt, you can always purchase a new jar of honey for safety reasons.
As mentioned by the National Honey Board, there is no official U.S. federal definition of “raw” honey, but it basically means honey that has not been processed, heated or filtered. There are several claims that raw honey is more nutritious or good for health than pasteurized honey because raw honey may contain small amounts of pollen grains that are often removed during processing or filtering.
Honey is filtered due to various reasons:
1. Several consumers prefer honey in liquid form.
2. The presence of suspended particles and air bubbles in honey contribute to crystallization. Filtering helps delay crystallization, helping the honey to remain in its liquid form for longer periods of time than unfiltered honey.
3. Many consumers prefer honey to be clear and transparent.
4. The presence of suspended particles like pollen grains, wax, etc. and air bubbles give a cloudy appearance. Filtering provides a clear product as desired by consumers. For filtered honey, as mentioned by the National Honey Board, USDA Grading Standards for extracted honey provide higher grades for honey with good clarity.
5. Honey is generally filtered to remove external solids that remain after the initial processing.
6. Honey that is filtered using traditional methods still has some properties of honey, even if pollen and other fine particles have been removed.
Honey can be stored intact in sealed containers for decades or centuries. However, during storag, honey is susceptible to certain physical and chemical changes. The colour of the honey may turn dark and the original aroma and flavour may change or it may even crystallize.

Honey is made from the nectar of flowers and plants by honeybees. Pollen is accidentally brought back by the bees as a source of food for their babies or the “brood” or incidentally introduced into the honey via other means like during the process of extraction. Pollen that is present in the honey is sometimes used to help determine the primary floral source. The amount of pollen found in honey is low in quantity and not enough to have a major impact on its nutrient value. Although this pollen helps fight various allergies in the body.
