So, my first determination in assessing the food I eat and share with my loved ones are, what is the process and how does it compare (it's processed state) to it's original state?
Raw honey absolutely deserves some recognition and differentiation from it's processed counterpart. It is considered to be a super food of sorts, full of benefits when used in it's original state.
Here are some raw honey facts:
- Full of Antioxidants
- Full of Flavonoids
- Full of Enzymes
- Contain Bee Pollen
Honey has been shown to have an antimicrobial effect against bacteria and other unwanted invaders. Raw honey is being used by doctors in the UK to treat mouth and throat cancer patients to reduce their chances of contracting bacterial infections. It has also been used to speed up the healing of wounds caused by Caesarean sections as well as other types of wounds.
