Apiterra raw honey has never been heated or filtered.
Never heating and never filtering is the best way to preserve the natural minerals, vitamins, and enzymes found in raw honey as it exists in the beehive.
Never heated: when honey is heated above the average maximum temperature of a typical beehive (95 degrees Fahrenheit), most of the natural enzymes of honey are destroyed. Therefore we choose to not heat our raw honey, unlike other raw honey producers.
Never filtered: more than ¾ of honey that is sold is filtered, in order to remove all the pollen and beeswax, mostly for cosmetic reasons, sometimes to hide the origin. We like our raw honey to be real, so we choose to keep these elements, especially because pollen contains many beneficial vitamins.
