Oros Machaira Unheated (Raw) Honey


Honey is considered to be “unheated” when it comes straight from the honeycomb without any processing and is sold to consumers just as the bees make it. Unlike honey which undergoes heat treatment and filtering, raw honey retains all its yeasts and pollen grains, which are what give it its high nutritional value.

Additional information

At Oros Machaira, we believe that honey is much more than just a sweet condiment. It’s a nutritious powerhouse that has been treasured for its health benefits and delicious taste for centuries. That’s why we offer our customers the most authentic form of honey – raw honey.

Studies show that yeasts cannot withstand high temperatures and many are destroyed when heated. While heating allows the product to remain in a fluid phase for longer, it does mean it loses nutritional value (Practical Bee-keeping – Andreas T.Thrasyvoulou, 1998). Raw honey is the purest form of honey available. It retains all its natural nutrients and enzymes which are mitigated by heat treatment. Unlike heated honey, unheated honey is never exposed to high temperatures that can destroy beneficial yeasts and reduce its nutritional value.

Raw honey also has a different, more complex flavour and aroma than processed honey, and many people enjoy its unique taste. In addition to its health benefits, raw honey also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which can help to promote wound healing and protect against infection.

Many people ask us “What should I eat? Unheated or heated honey?” At Oros Machaira we believe it’s a matter of choice, and up to the individual depending on their needs. Many people tell us that they prefer heated honey because it’s easier to use while others tell us that they prefer to eat raw honey because it has a higher nutritional value than heated honey. At Oros Machaira we offer you both options. So whether you prefer the natural, wholesome goodness of raw honey or the ease and versatility of heated honey, we have got you covered. The choice is yours!
