My bottle of honey turned cloudy, did it spoil? Over time the natural sugar crystals in raw honey will crystalize, it sounds like this is what happened to your honey. To remove the crystals, all you need to do is warm it to disolve the crystals. One recommended way is to place your bottle honey into a container of hot tap water. The crystals will melt down again back into liquid honey. We recommend you don't put your container of honey in the microwave!
I opened a bottle of your honey I just bought and there is white stuff at the top, is this anything I should be concerned with? Since our honey is pure, raw, unfiltered honey, what you're seeing is the result of bottling. It's a mixture of wax and air bubbles settling to the top and is perfectly normal for raw honey. Larger companies often heat their honey to high temperatures as well as filter their honey to remove all those particles you sometimes see in our honey. This is to increase the clarity and extend the time it takes for the honey to crystalize, however this removes many of the benefits of raw honey which we pride ourselves in offering.
