ORGANIC CREAMED HONEY, Canadian, raw
Organic Creamed Honey is also known as whipped honey. The crystallization process has been controlled very precisely; creamed honey does not drip like liquid honey. Our Creamed Honey has a smooth consistency and can be easily spread. This high quality Canadian honey is goes through an advanced batch creaming process producing a smooth, easily spreadable, velvety creamed honey unlike any other in North America. This honey is gravity filtered, raw, and unpasturized.
We love the organic creamed honey! I even ordered some for my son and sent to him in NB

Nice consistency. Love it!
This honey tastes amazing HOWEVER a word of CAUTION (please read)
I'll start by saying this honey is heavenly tasting. But a word of extreme caution the plastic containers used are known to leach chemicals when exposed to acidic liquids (which honey is). Why am I making and issue if these plastic containers are FDA approved and BPA free? BPA is one of many different chemical added to plastic to harden it. Just because a company claims it's plastic is "BPA free" does not mean it's chemical free. (FYI: The reason why there are recycling #'s on plastic is because each type/# a different chemical is added to create certain properties of plastic - meaning there is a unique chemical added to EACH different plastic. BPA just happens to be the "known" bad chemical - which has recently been replaced with another just harmful chemical. In fact Scientific America & Time did stories on this here: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/bpa-free-plastic-containers-may-be-just-as-hazardous/ AND HERE: http://time.com/3742871/bpa-free-health/ This same concept goes back to the origins of chemical use in our history. For example at one time the FDA & chemical company's told people that DDT (which was used as a pesticide for crops & sprayed in city's for mosquito control) was considered safe to humans. It was not until many years later that people began to show negative side effects of DDT that the chemical was banned & labeled as a carcinogenic. (Keep in mind that these chemical company's & the FDA do not test these products based on years of repeated exposure they only test a few small does/exposures before they approve them). With that said we need to look at the Koala Bear which consumes the toxic leaves of the Eucalyptus tree containing cyanide. It evolved over millions of years to develop a special elongated section in it's intestines called the caecum - that houses specialized bacteria that break down the cyanide. Humans have not evolved a means to break down this toxin - so if we ate a small amount of these leaves - while it might not be fatal it certainly would cause cramping & other side effects. If we continued to eat these leaves the toxins would build in the body (since the body has no way to break them down) & eventually would be fatal. This same concept occurs in out bodies with ALL man made chemicals. For example if we eat an organic apple the body knows what everything in that apple is, what to do with it, AND where to send it to be processed. It knows what fructose is, how to break it down into energy, it knows what iron is, & where to send it, it knows what vitamins are etc. However when we eat an apple with chemical pesticides like Glyphosate the body has no "code" or "knowledge base" of what to do to process this chemical. It has no idea if it's a vitamin or a mineral or a sugar - there for the body has no idea where to send it or how to break it down. As a result of this these chemicals will just build & build in the body. Eventually just like the example of eating Eucalytus leaves if we eat a few it's not going to have much effect but after years of consuming small amounts our bodies being unable to process these toxic chemicals will eventually become saturated with them - and thus we see our body cells become cancerous. This is not an issue of having bad gene's it's the fact that we are consuming so many toxic chemicals that the body has no way to dispose of, thus with so many toxins built up in the body the body becomes toxic to itself - which equals cancerous to itself. Read more here: https://www.ewg.org/research/body-burden-pollution-newborns "Of the 287 chemicals we found 180 cause cancer...." (I could go on about the huge cover up as these same chemical companies like Monsanto/Bayer who make DDT/Glyphosate etc also make drugs for treating cancer - so they make $ off you being naive) How does this apply to this review? Google says Recycling #1 PETE plastic container (used for this honey) leaches chemicals. Especially when heated or exposed to acidic cleaners. PETE #1 is intended for Ph neutral contents like water. Honey is acidic so it WILL cause chemical leaching. To prove this - I did an experiment, I took honey from the center of the jar & honey near the edges (this honey is semi-solid so any leaching would not reach the center - only near the edges) & I did a side by side comparison. There was a 100% obviously chemical taste in the honey near the edges of the plastic jar vs the honey in the center. The fact that it was so obviously tells me that there is more than trace amounts of chemicals that have leached into this honey & should NOT be consumed. Putting anything organic into a container which leaches chemicals is contradictive to it being organic. I HOPE that someone at OM foods reads this and MAKES the sensible choice to move away from plastics to glass only - use multiple containers on large orders.
While the Honey tastes good the #1 PETE PLASTIC JAR IS NOT A GOOD CHOICE FOR AN ORGANIC PRODUCT!!
The honey tastes great - however the photo is misleading as it shows multiple types of jars. I ordered the 946ml when I saw that it came in a glass jar (as seen on the right). HOWEVER what arrived was actually in a PLASTIC jar (YUCK!) as seen left center. In the past I've experienced storing honey in plastic jars leads to the plastic leeching chemicals into the honey. The worst was with the white plastic pales where I found there was a harder thicker layer of honey which had sort of "crystallized" around the edges of the plastic. I figured this was normal as honey's tend to crystallize. But when I went to eat this harder honey I found it tasted like chemicals I was not sure if it was just me so I kept eating it... and as a result I ended up braking out in all sorts of disgusting painful hives/boils all over my body. It became obvious to me that the chemicals in the plastic had leached out into the honey my guess as to why is that most honey is mildly acidic. From that day on I ONLY purchase honey in GLASS JARS! FYI: The plastic # on the Jar I received is #1 PETE which according to Google PETE does not contain BPA or Phthalates, but it's always best to make sure that your containers are not temperature abused. PETE plastic should not be reused because cleaning detergents and high temperatures can cause chemicals to leach out of the plastic. Plastic #1 is only intended for one time use. So I think that if cleaning detergents can weaken/leach the chemicals out then so can honey since it's mildly acidic. NOT A GOOD CHOICE FOR AN ORGANIC PRODUCT!! And I think ALL honey dispensers should NEVER sell honey in the WHITE PLASTIC PALES - the plastic is too soft & there for leaks chemicals much easier than harder plastics. I did look into large glass jars and found many website selling various sizes including 4 Liter/ 1 Gallon & 1/2 Gallon sizes and perhaps a bit larger. So there are safer alternatives to storing honey in large amounts. The cost goes up per container but guarantee's it comes without the added chemicals. Just wish there was an easy way to return for refill glass containers like the old milk & soda pop companies used to do.
Smooth and Yummy!
