Unlike highly-processed honey found in most grocery stores, Texas Range Honey™ is never, pasteurized or altered in any way. Before bottling our beekeeper gently screens out large hive particles like wax, bee parts, etc. from the honey. TRH is completely unfiltered and responsibly harvested. Free of any chemicals, additives, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, and pollutants. We offer the most natural Wild Honey in Texas.
Raw wild honey differs from regular honey in that, it has never been heated past temperatures that naturally occurs inside the hive. As bees deposit nectar (what becomes honey) into their hives, the temperature inside can climb as high 100+ degrees Fahrenheit, however, most of the honey you’ll find in grocery stores has been heated far beyond this temperature. Large producers will usually heat honey to make it faster and easier to micro-filter and bottle. The heating process (often referred to as pasteurization) damages or destroys most of the key nutrients in raw honey, including: naturally occurring enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
After pasteurization, large bottlers and honey packers will often filter honey through a fine grain filter in order to rid the honey of any visual impurities (bits of honeycomb, bee parts, bee pollen, etc). Since bee pollen is a source of many nutrients, including protein, vitamins, and antioxidants, the filtering process further removes nutrients from the end product. [Side note on bee pollen: it’s believed by many that bee pollen can offer some allergy symptom relief.
