Do You Know How Honey Is Stored?

Jul. 11, 2018

1. It is best to use a Food Grade Glass Honey Jar to store honey instead of metal utensils. Because honey contains organic acids and carbohydrates, these two substances are partially converted into acetic acid under the action of enzymes. If honey is stored in metal containers for a long time, this acetic acid will cause the galvanized metal skin to corrode and fall off, thereby increasing honey. The heavy metals such as lead, zinc and iron deteriorate the honey.

2. Always use a clean spoon when you take it with honey, or pour it directly out of the honey bottle to avoid impurities and deterioration

3. The bottle containing the honey must be sealed, preferably in a cool place.

The honey that consumers buy is often not eaten in time for various reasons. For a long time, it is forgotten. Sometimes it is for a few years. It seems that honey is still good, but it has already passed the shelf life. So ask: Can the honey be eaten? High Quality Glass Packaging Supplier can tell you.

Scientific research and practice have proved that honey has strong antibacterial ability and is the only food in the world that does not spoil. In 1913, American archaeologists discovered a jar of honey in the Egyptian pyramid tomb. It has been identified that the honey has lasted for more than 3,300 years, but it has not deteriorated at all and is still edible. It can be seen that the real mature honey can be eaten completely after being placed for a long time. There is no strict shelf life, but as a food market, according to the "Food Law", it is required to indicate the shelf life on the food products. Therefore, the honey manufacturer generally sets the honey shelf life to 2 years.

However, it must be pointed out that if it is not mature honey or inferior products such as water, these honey will be fermented, sour, and inedible after being placed for a long time. Of course, if the fermentation is not serious, it can be eaten after being heated in a water bath at about 60 ° C for half an hour.

In short, no matter what honey, no matter how long it has been preserved, as long as it has not deteriorated, it is edible and will not be harmful to the body. Just a long time honey compared to fresh honey, the nutritional value is slightly worse.
