Our Honey

Along with this stamp, each jar of Fujarskich honey has its own “seal” number that indicates the honey contained has been grown, processed, and packaged freshly within the parameters of local tradition as well as the European Union’s organic specifications. The bees that create this honey are necessary to the survival of the Drawa watershed because they are an essential role in the reproductive process of all flora that sustains all local wildlife and much of the human inhabitants.

Some honeys are described to have an exceptionally long or short crystallization time. All raw honey crystallizes and it is the different flower sources of the nectar that determines how long this process takes. It is well understood that liquid honey, honey that has not yet crystallized into a thick paste, is easier packaged, measured, and eaten. This is one of the reasons why most honeys you find in the market are filtered, diluted, and pasteurized. Another reason is that honey is usually more appealing when liquid, as it appears pure and unclouded by solid matter.

The difference between raw and filtered/pasteurized honey is not only in consistency and appearance, but in nutritional content as well. In the previous post about honey, the difference between raw and pasteurized honey is detailed. The process of filtering results in similar results as heating: easier to process and less nutritional honey.
