This is Raw Honey: This means that it is not pasteurised, unlike almost all supermarket honey, and it is not ultra filtered, a process that removes most of the pollen.
The Raw Honey will still contain pollen, wax and propolis (this is a residue mixture that bees collect from tree buds and saps, the bees use it to mend small holes in the hive). This is because raw honey is left untreated which means it is not heated through or strained.
Raw Honey is widely considered to provide greater health benefits retaining all the vitamins, enzymes and minerals from the flower.
