Honey has been enjoyed as a food by humans since ancient times, and today it’s as popular as ever. Raw Honey is an amazing natural food with many health benefits. Processed honey found in supermarkets is pasteurised, a process that heats the honey and destroys beneficial antioxidants and bacteria. In contrast, natural raw honey retains nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants that provide many health benefits.

Raw honey has antibacterial and antifungal properties that can be used medically as an antiseptic to kill unwanted bacteria and fungus. And of course honey is ever popular and effective to soothe a sore throat, or mixed with lemon juice as a cold remedy.
