Beekeeping and Honey Labeling 101 is a useful new resource for those interested in taking up beekeeping, but also for honey consumers who care to learn about the status of honeybees and honey in the world today, different labels on honey jars and what they mean. It also shows interesting stats about the number of bee colonies in the US, which is the fifth largest producer of honey in the world.

Further, it provides explanation of the differences between raw and pasteurized honey, reasons why it’s not so helpful to know that the honey is “natural”, why many honey manufacturers filter their product, and why it could be a good idea to go for unfiltered honey.
