Organic Unprocessed Raw Honey
Oregan Organic unprocessed Raw Honey is collected by honey bees from flowers of nature’s foliage in the unpolluted native landscape of New Zealand. This is the concentrated nectar of flowers that comes straight from the extractor; it is the only unheated, pure, unpasteurized, unprocessed honey. Oregan Organic unprocessed Raw Honey has a very delicate floral bouquet with a pleasant, mild herbal scent and tastes great in tea, on toast, scones and biscuits.
Oregan Organic Unprocessed Raw Honey has high fructose levels. An HYPERLINK alkaline-forming food, this type of honey contains ingredients similar to those found in fruits, which become alkaline in the digestive system. It doesn't ferment in the stomach and it can be used to counteract acid HYPERLINK indigestion. Unprocessed Raw Honey is the healthiest choice amongst the various forms of honey as it has the highest nutritional value and contains amylase, an enzyme concentrated in flower pollen which helps predigest starchy foods. All honey from Oregan New Zealand is processed to the highest standard whereby any form of heating is avoided so as to preserve all the natural vitamins, HYPERLINK enzymes and other nutritional elements.
Most of the honey that is available on the market is not raw honey but "commercial" regular honey, which has been pasteurized (heated at 700 C or more, followed by rapid cooling) and filtered so that it looks cleaner and smoother, more appealing on the shelf and easier to handle and package. Pasteurization kills any yeast cell in the honey and prevents fermentation. It also slows down the speed of crystallization in liquid honey. On the downside, when honey is heated, its delicate aromas, yeast and enzymes which are responsible for activating vitamins and minerals in the body system are partially destroyed. Hence, raw honey is assumed to be more nutritious than honey that has undergone heat treatment.
