Raw Honey: The Anna’s Honey Way

in Honey Benefits

Our honey offerings are Grade A quality and free of preservatives, which means they are a premium, all natural product. What makes Anna’s Honey even more special is that during the bottling phase of our honey processing, we are very careful to keep the honey in it’s raw state, without harming all of its natural benefits.

To qualify as raw honey, the honey must not be heated beyond temperatures that would naturally occur in the hive. When honey is overheated, many of its natural enzymes are destroyed, thus ruining the potential health benefits. While we do heat our honey minimally, it is only to improve manageability during packaging. The heat levels are carefully monitored and regulated to never exceed the natural hive temperatures. This is how Anna’s Honey is able to retain all those wonderful healthy enzymes.

Honey straight from the hive contains pollen, honeycomb pieces, as well as lingering bee parts. When producing a gourmet quality raw honey, such as ours, we believe that the wax honeycomb remnants and bee parts are detrimental to the purity of the honey. We filter our honey at 200 microns to remove any wax pieces and bee parts that interfere with the honey’s clarity. This level of filtration allows the natural pollen to come through unharmed. What you get is pure honey with a smooth, flowing consistency.

Anna’s Honey is gourmet quality raw honey. Our honey is full of the beneficial enzymes and natural pollen that raw honey is known for. What’s more, our honey is free of preservatives, additives and artificial ingredients.

So, when you spread Anna’s Honey on your morning toast you can rest assured that along with its delicious flavor, you are also getting quality honey with great nutritional benefits.

Hello there!
I am from Michigan and would very much like to sample your varieties of honey, do you have sample sizes available? I am very curious as to how the flavours differ between our state’s and also between the different types of honey that you have to offer.
I have tried several grocery store brands and varieties only to find that the biggest difference is in the price. (and the fact that they must have to heat it so much that all the healthy goodness is gone)
The difference between store bought and raw honey is like night and day!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely, Nadine

Hi Nadine,

Thank you for your inquiry! Unfortunately, we currently do not offer sample sizes of our honey. The smallest size we have would be our 12oz Honey Bears and our 12oz Honey Jars, each currently retail for $6.50. You can see our entire product offering on our website here: http://www.AnnasHoney.com.

You are correct in stating that most store bought honeys and raw honeys are very different! We are very careful to not overheat our honey during packaging in order to retain all the great nutrients. We also never add anything to the honey like additives or artificial ingredients. We are dedicated to providing the best high-quality, raw honey that is simply pure as nature intended.

Thank you for reaching out to us and please let me know if you have any further questions!

Sincerely,
Vicky Lee
Anna’s Honey
