Difference between light and dark honey
Honey is a fascinating substance, from the moment it has been harvested from the hives to being bottled. Its a natural food product that keeps evolving on its own in different environment that is being kept in. Like nature comes in different form, colour and taste. Honey is the same; there's the light honey and the dark honey, lighter taste and richer taste and even crystallised honey form.
Honey gets its colour from the pollen that a hive gathers to make it. A single hive can produce radically different colours of honey from season to season. The common wisdom is that light honeys taste mild while dark honeys are heavy and rich, but this isn't always true. Most honey on store shelves isn't particularly light or dark; it's more of a golden-orange colour.
Some Honey crystallised and that is absolutely natural! It's often misunderstood by the consuming public that crystallised honey is adulterated or 'spoiled'.
Many assume that crystallised honey is adulterated or 'spoiled'. This is not so. Crystallised Honey is absolutely natural! Crystallisation process is often natural and spontaneous. Pure, raw and unheated honey has a natural tendency to crystallise over time with no effect on the honey other than colour and texture. The crystallisation of honey preserves the flavor and quality characteristics of your honey.
Honey is a natural food product, taste and colour will vary slightly from batch to batch. It'll get darker and taste richer overtime.
