What does the term “raw honey” mean?

Raw honey means honey as you would find it in the beehive. Raw honey is never heated to temperatures hotter than the bees would naturally experience it in their hive environment.  Honey not marked as raw honey is frequently heated before putting through a fine filter to make it look more appealing.  That means that you can expect raw honey not to be as clear as honey that has had all of the pollen and propolis filtered out.  High heat and filtration tend to extend the amount of time honey takes to granulate, so you can expect raw honey to possibly granulate a little faster.
