heating raw honey?

hi i bought some raw honey the other day and was making chocolate milk with my drk chocolate bar and the raw honey. It was really dank. My question is if I'm essentially eliminating all the benefits of raw honey when I heat the milk in with the chocolate. It would seem so. Thanks so much

Hi Ron,
Not necessarily. The benefits of the raw honey will only be destroyed if you heat it above 118 degrees.

Raw Honey in a hot car all day?

by Julie
(Louisiana)

I wasn't thinking and left 16 pints of raw honey I had just bought in a closed vehicle for 6 hours in July. I live in central Louisiana. Did I just ruin $100.00 worth of honey. I am eating it for the benefits it provides not because I just like it. Thanks so much. Julie

Hi Julie,
No, you didn't ruin it. To destroy the benefits of the raw honey, you'd need to get it closer to the boiling point!

Bee healthy,
Angela

Heating and damaging raw honey
by: Angela

Yes, sorry for the confusion. At 118 degrees you'd likely begin to start damaging the raw honey. At boiling you'd completely kill off the healthy bacteria.

heating raw honey
by: Charles

I'm confused Angela. You first said that 118* is as warm as honey should be heated to not destroy it's benefits, then the very next statement says you'd have to heat it to near boiling to destroy the benefits of raw honey. Can you clarify?
