What is Crystalized Honey?
When honey crystallizes, it is still as nutritious and sweet as ever. In fact, the crystals prove that your honey is high quality and hasn’t been processed. It means that nutritious pollen hasn’t been filtered out and important enzymes haven’t been damaged by pasteurization.
Glucose and fructose:
These two play a key role in crystallization. When bees fly from flower to flower, they’re collecting rich nectar. That nectar is made up of two sugars: glucose and fructose. After collection, the bees will drop off the nectar at their hive where it becomes honey. Different flower nectars have different ratios, and the crystals in your honey will reflect those different ratios. Honey from sunflowers and clovers crystallize quicker, while maple and eucalyptus honey changes slower. The more you know!
The final factor is pollen. Pollen is simply a side effect of the bees’ honey making process. While bees collect nectar, they can rub their fuzzy bodies on the flower’s pollen, and it can find its way into the honey. Not only is pollen healthy, it’s important to keep pollen in your honey to test where it came from. Pollen also ensures that your honey hasn’t been processed. With pollen in honey, the little particles provide a base for crystallization to begin.
Whether you like to spread your honey crystals over toast or let your honey slip into your Earl Grey, know that your crystallized honey is undergoing a natural process. When it comes to crystallization, let Mother Nature do her thing, you'll really be glad you did.
