What is "raw" honey?

Raw honey is honey that has not been heated to excessive temperatures. Many honey brands process and pasteurize their honey as part of their storing process. This kills many of the natural nutrients in the honey and changes the flavor of it. Hungary Bees Acacia Honey is carefully handled to preserve its natural flavor and health benefits. There are no artificial sweeteners added to our honey! Other companies may also dilute their honey with cheaper or lower quality honey, but Hungary Bees strives to only deliver the finest honey!

What is "organic" honey?

Truely organic honey is incredibly rare. Although honey is typically an all-natural product, many honey brands have traces of pesticides. Why is this? Many bees fly incredibly far from the hive and can be exposed to a number of pesticides which they bring back to the hive. In Hungary, the Acacia forests are not treated with pesticides, and extend for miles. Thus, bees never come in contact with other flowers. This naturally ensures that Hungary Bees Acacia Honey is all natural and organic!
