Forms of Honey

Most of us know honey as a sweet, golden liquid. However, honey can be found in a variety of forms. Big Bear Lake Honey Company offers not only 100% pure, raw and unfiltered wildflower honey, but also whipped or creamed honeys, honeycomb and bee pollen.

Comb Honey

Comb honey is honey in its original form; that is, honey inside of the honeycomb.  The beeswax comb is edible!

Cut Comb

Cut comb honey is liquid honey that has added chunks of the honey comb in the jar. This is also known as a liquid-cut comb combination.

Liquid Honey

Free of visible crystals, liquid honey is extracted from the honey comb by centrifugal force, gravity or straining. Because liquid honey mixes easily into a variety of foods, it’s especially convenient for cooking and baking. Most of the honey produced in the United States is sold in the liquid form.

Naturally Crystallized Honey

Naturally crystallized honey is honey in which part of the glucose content has spontaneously crystallized.  It is safe to eat.

Whipped (or Creamed) Honey

While all honey will crystallize in time, whipped honey (also known as creamed honey) is brought to market in a crystallized state. The crystallization is controlled so that, at room temperature, the honey can be spread like butter or jelly. In many countries around the world, whipped honey is preferred to the liquid form especially at breakfast time.
