Golden Acres Honey Products Ltd. provides some of the finest Canadian Honey available, all from Three Hills, Alberta. Their products include Bee Pollen, Bee Propolis Tincture, Beeswax and a variety of honeys.
NATURAL (Non-Processed) honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow. We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. And pollen because it has not been filtered, merely screened.
LIQUID HONEY has been heated (160F) to melt the honey crystal, and filtered ( 12 – 60 micron) to remove foreign material and unmelted crystals. It is unstable-it wants to go back to the crystalline state. The filtering removes nuclei (centres) around which crystals are likely to start. Although we are careful not to damage the honey, heating can create a sharper taste (bite), and inadvertently kills the yeast and enzymes.
CREAMED HONEY is gently warmed (Non-organic 130F : Organic 113F) enough to flow, loosely filtered (200 micron) to remove foreign matter and then it is purposely re-crystallized by adding some previously creamed honey to the batch. Crystals grow and propagate on these nuclei to form a “firm” product.
