Is raw honey safe to eat?

How should I eat raw honey?

Can I put raw honey in my tea?

Yes, you can put raw honey in your tea. However, it's important to note that warming raw honey above 37°C/99°F can compromise its beneficial living nutrients, enzymes, and bacteria. For the maximum retention of its natural goodness, it's recommended to add raw honey to tea at temperatures below this threshold.

What is organic honey?

Organic honey is honey that has been certified by a government-appointed organic control body to be free of any chemicals from the flower to the kitchen table. To achieve organic certification, regulations require a 5-mile exclusion zone around the beehive, ensuring no chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, roads, factories, or houses within this radius.

Are all of your honeys organic?

Yes, all of our organic honeys are labeled as "organic" in the product name. Additionally, we offer both organic and non-organic honey options to cater to different preferences.

Why has my runny honey turned into set honey?

All honey crystallizes over time, especially at low temperatures. In raw honey, crystallization occurs faster due to the presence of pollen particles. Faster crystallization is an indicator of real, raw honey.

To return crystallized honey to a runny consistency, store it in a warm place, leave it on a radiator overnight, or place it on top of a sealed container of hot water until it softens.

The rate of crystallization can vary among raw honeys due to differences in the natural sugar ratio (fructose and glucose) present in the honey.

Someone told me that if honey crystallizes, that means sugar has been added to it. Is that true?

No, it is not true. Honey naturally contains sugars, and the crystallization process is a natural occurrence. Adding sugar to honey would be redundant, as honey is inherently sweet.

Why is your brand focused on honeys from Baltic Latvia?

Baltic Latvia, with its rich and unique biodiversity, is a captivating region covering a small portion of the earth's surface. Despite its size, it is home to exclusive trees, flowers, and plants.

Our dedication to honeys from Baltic Latvia stems from the extraordinary flavors, colours, and aromas that are distinct to this region. Each jar of our honey captures the essence of this exceptional landscape, offering a truly unique and unparalleled honey experience.

Is Baltic Latvian honey better than other European honey?

We firmly believe so! The unique geography and climate of Baltic Latvia foster an abundance of diverse trees, flowers, and plants, surpassing the biodiversity found in many other European regions.

With the vast size and lower population density of Baltic Latvia, our honey originates from regions far from built-up areas, minimizing the risk of contamination with pollutants. By choosing Baltic Latvian honey, you're opting for a product that benefits from pristine environments and offers a superior honey experience. "Be smart about your honey choice.

Why is Baltic Latvian honey more expensive than supermarket honey?

Our honey is not comparable to supermarket "honey." Supermarket versions often undergo processing that removes beneficial nutrients, distinguishing them from our pure and unadulterated honey.
