Is Manuka Health Manuka Honey 'raw'?

According to our research on the definition of 'raw' - Yes!

There is no government definition or requirement for honey to be defined as 'raw', but according to our research, consumers are looking for 'raw' honey because they believe heat-treating can diminish the positive effects of the honey. 

 

This is true - overheating honey will change its properties, and we steer clear of this.

 

We gently warm our honey to the same temperatures that it reaches within the bee-hive. This makes it easier for us to remove natural debris such as wax and propolis, and it enables us to pour the honey easily into the amber jars we use to protect the precious honey until it reaches you. We do not heat-treat our honey in any way.
