WHAT IS IT
Honey In The Raw® is organic, raw, unfiltered pure honey which is hand-harvested from Brazilian wildflowers.
Honey In The Raw® is sourced from the remote Casstinga region in Northeast Brazil.
Honey In The Raw® is hand harvested. First, wax caps are removed from the honeycomb by traditional hand-scraping methods. Next, honeycombs are inserted into a drum, which used centrifugal force to extract the honey. Honey is gently warmed to improve the flowability and then strained to remove bee parts and wax particles. Honey is then packaged into convenient 16oz bottles.
