TYPES OF HONEY
Comb honey is natural honeycomb taken directly from the hive, and kept in the form as produced by the bees.
Liquid honey is the most common form of honey sold and the one most commonly used. It’s extracted from the comb after the wax cappings are removed.
Granulated honey is honey which has crystallised. All natural raw honey will granulate if left for some time, especially in colder periods. The entire contents should granulate over time – if half granulates and the other half remains liquid then the honey could be adulterated.
Creamed honey is a blend of granulated honey and liquid honey that has been whipped up into a creamy texture to make it easier to spread.
Chunk honey is comb honey that’s stored in a jar with liquid honey poured over it.
