Health benfits

Alleviates Allergies

Honey’s anti-inflammatory effects and ability to soothe coughs results in a reduction of seasonal allergy symptoms. It contains small amounts of pollen, which, when exposed to the body act like a natural vaccine. After repeated exposure, you should build up antibodies so that a lesser allergic response is triggered.

Super Source of Energy

Honey is an excellent source of all-natural energy, with just 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. This natural unprocessed sugar directly enters the bloodstream and can deliver a quick boost of energy. The rise in blood sugar can act as a long term energy source.

Natural Cough Medicine

Honey can be the all-natural cure when it comes to pesky colds. A persistent cough that won’t go away can easily be remedied with two teaspoons of honey, according to a 2012 study published in the journal Pediatrics. The golden liquid’s thick consistency helps coat the throat while the sweet taste is believed to trigger nerve endings that protect the throat from incessant coughing.

Sleep Solution

Honey can be a health aid for sleepless nights. Honey can cause a release serotonin — a neurotransmitter that improves mood and happiness. The body converts serotonin into melatonin, a chemical compound that regulates the length and the quality of sleep. Moreover, honey also contains several amino acids, including tryptophan that is commonly associated with turkey.

Accelerates Healing

Honey is a natural antibiotic that can act both internally and externally. It can be used as a conventional treatment for wounds and burns by disinfecting wounds and sores from major species of bacteria.

From Farm to Table

From Flower

Honey gets its start as flower nectar, which is collected by bees, naturally broken down into simple sugars and stored in honeycombs. The unique design of the honeycomb, coupled with constant fanning by the bees’ wings, causes evaporation to take place, creating the thick, sweet liquid we know as honey. The color and flavor of honey varies from hive to hive based on the type of flower nectar collected by the bees. For example, honey made from orange blossom nectar might be light in color, whereas honey from wildflowers might have a dark amber color. At North Star Honey our honey is sourced mainly from local wildflowers.

To Beekeeper

Fortunately, honey bees will make more honey than their colony needs, so it is necessary for beekeepers to remove the excess. On average, a hive will produce about 30 pounds of surplus honey each year. Beekeepers harvest honey by collecting the honeycomb frames and scraping off the wax cap that bees make to seal off honey in each cell.

To Extraction

Once the caps are removed, the frames are placed in an extractor — a centrifuge that spins the frames — forcing honey out of the comb. The honey is spun to the sides of the extractor, where gravity pulls it to the bottom and it can be collected. After the honey is extracted, it is strained to remove any remaining pieces of wax or other particles. Some beekeepers and bottlers might heat the honey to make it easier to strain, this is called pasteurization. At North Star Honey, we believe in the power of raw honey and don't pasteurize our product.

To You

After straining, it’s time to bottle, label and distribute the honey. From hive to bottle North Star Honey Co. is commited to delivering the best product possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Bees and honey are commonly misunderstood

Why does my honey crystallize?

All honey will at some point turn to sugar crystals. This is a natural process. Some honey will stay in a liquid form for quite a while, while other honey will turn to a solid form with in a few weeks. This is due to how stable the sugar crystal is in the nectar. This is not honey turned bad. You may find you like it in this solid state!! It spreads on toast or bread without dripping off. To turn it back to a liquid state, gently warm the jar in hot (not boiling) water. Honey doesn't need to be stored in the refrigerator. In fact, this speeds up the crystal formation.

What is raw honey?

The technical definition of raw honey is very loose: it just means not heated past pasteurization. Great, now what does that mean? To understand that, it’s important to first understand what happens inside a beehive. When honeybees are at work, their collective body temperature rises and consequently warms their work area – that is, the honey. The temperature of an active hive, therefore, is about 95ºF (35ºC), and the honey is stable and “alive” – or rather, the enzymes in honey that give it the nutritional and beneficial qualities are alive. As long as the temperature of honey does not significantly rise past 95ºF/35ºC, the honey has not been pasteurized.
The irony is, people will insist the beekeeper not heat honey, but they’ll take it home and microwave it. This is called flash-heating, and this sudden (radioactive) heat destroys the enzymes and chemically changes the honey. It’s still sweet, but it’s now chemically more like a processed sweetener. In some cases, the taste may even be different. Even without any noticeable changes, the honey has lost all its nutritional value (and is no longer raw).

Raw Honey vs. Organic Honey

Some people think raw honey is the same as organic honey, but it’s not. “Organic honey” is when the flowers that the bees get the nectar from has not been sprayed with chemicals. Simple, right? As long as beekeepers control where the bees go, they’ll know that they’re getting honey from organic flowers. Except it’s impossible to always know where bees go because they usually fly up to 2 miles (5 km) to look for flowers that are producing enough nectar for harvesting. If they need to, they can fly up to 5 miles (8 km). So that means some quality assurance inspector needs to know for sure that all the flowers for a 2- to 5-mile radius all around the beehive are indeed organic.
