    I know honey has alot of health benefits and I use honey on a daily basis as a sweetener in the many cups of green tea I drink daily. I know that raw honey is ideal but there's raw honey that looks like regular honey and raw honey that's dense, non transparent and almost a wax like consistency. I have two examples in my cupboard here.

    Without knowing for certain I always thought the thick less processed looking version would be the better choice but seeing so many honeys looking like the one on the right claiming to be raw, and some raw and organic makes me question it.

    Ya I guess I just assumed someone would have insight since it makes for a great natural sweetener. I picked up a juicer the other day and been experimenting. Some of the more bitter tasting blends I've added a teaspoon of the organic honey and makes for some awesome tasting healthiness

    Honey consistency varies depending on its physical structure or the way its processed, of which may be minimal but in some cases heating does still occur.

    Ok so your saying the consistency just has to do with the amount of hear applied to it through jarring and doesn't have anything to deal with the amount of beneficial properties being filtered out? I guess I thought the dense thick waxy honey had more honeycomb in it,
