What is creamy honey?
Despite the name, there is no dairy or “cream” added to creamed honey. It can also be called churned honey, or whipped honey, depending on what country you are in. Unlike liquid honey, creamed honey will never crystallize or go hard.
Creamed honey is the same golden liquid honey that undergoes a specific processing technique. Time, temperature and conditioning are carefully controlled to promote the formation of micro-crystals, which provide the creamed honey with its characteristic consistency.
The creaming process takes place at low temperatures, for this reason, the nutrients and health benefits of honey are not altered by this process.
What's the difference between honey & creamy honey?
Texture and thickness are ultimately the only differences between creamed and liquid honey. Once the honey has been cream conditioned it is comparable to soft-serve ice cream in terms of texture and thickness. Creamed honey will not drip as liquid honey does. The product is very smooth and spreadable, similar to butter. Creamed honey also differs from liquid honey in that it will never crystallize into a hard block. This is because the creamed honey is already crystallized, only in particles so small that instead of making a solid block they give a creamy texture.
How do the health benefits of creamed honey compare to that of liquid?
Liquid honey boasts extensive health benefits in terms of quality, nutrition, and natural antibiotic properties. Because creamed honey is merely liquid honey that has been conditioned the benefits are identical. Honey has been used medicinally for many years. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties make it excellent for healing wounds, cough suppression, and soothing a sore throat.
