What makes your honey crystallize solid?
Where and what type of plants bees forage on will determine the nutrient level, crystallization, color, fragrance and taste. Y.S. beekeepers have the true knowledge of quality. The results produce a superior, energy packed (intense crystallization) honey with the highest possible levels of live enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and beneficial agents as a functional whole food. Only truly raw state honey that has never been processed will crystallize with intensity and has full beneficial properties nature intended.
