NZ Honey - Frequently asked questions

Find out the most common questions when it comes to honey for sale NZ wide.

Does honey go bad or expire?
Natural raw honey preserved well under sealed and dry conditions will not expire. In fact, archeologists found raw honey thousands of years old in ancient Egyptian tombs, and it was still edible!

I doubt our delicious NZ honey will be in your cupboard for more than a month! However, our honey NZ organically harvested does not expire. This has to do with the natural sugar content and low PH level. The honey for sale must be raw organic honey NZ made and properly sealed. The lack of water under dry and sealed conditions is key. These factors in combination with the bees’ honey-making process, mean that organisms that spoil food don’t survive.

As we have established, natural raw honey New Zealand made will not expire when properly preserved. However, it is very normal for raw honey to crystalise over time. This has to do with changes in room temperature where it is kept under. In fact, the process of crystalisation proves that your honey is as pure as possible and unpasteurised. If you don’t enjoy the crystal texture, simply rest your honey in a bowl of warm water. This doesn’t have any effect on the taste or smell of your NZ honey. It turns your raw honey back into a runny liquid state preferred by many.

This is the magic of the best honey in New Zealand. It can be preserved in a completely edible form as if it were a day old. If you buy honey from the supermarket, it has likely been heated under extreme conditions and processed. This is why it also comes with an expiration date as it has been rid of almost all-natural preservatives. On the other hand, honey for sale NZ wide from Lili’s Honey beekeepers comes directly from the hive.
How much honey can I eat a day?
