Light-coloured honey is generally milder in taste and dark-coloured honey is stronger. Darker honeys tend to be higher in antioxidant compounds & mineral content.
Each floral variety has its own distinct and original taste, texture, and colour. Table sugar has a sweet taste, but honey has a flavour (if you hold your nose when you're eating, you'll quickly draw a distinction between taste and flavour). The unique aroma, flavour and colour of each of the honey varieties are determined by the floral source, such as Jarrah, Wildflower, or Banksia, from which the bee collects the nectar.
Raw honey sets. This is because we do not cook it. So you get all the good bits that the bees bring back from the flowers – the live enzymes, the vitamins and all the taste. You can make it runny by gently warming the jar in warm water.
