Does honey go off?

Views: 293

Honey can stay edible for years, even decades, but honey is a natural product, which means it will change over time. For honey, those changes may include darkening color, thicker consistency, and different taste.

 

Changes in honey are actually good signs (so long as they're not signs of fermentation). It proves your SIDR honey is high quality and unpasteurized. Pasteurization is a process that heats honey to destroy the natural yeasts. 

 

It helps the raw honey stay smoother longer, and it might remove some natural debris from the comb, but it isn't necessary for the safety of the food.

 

Expiration dates on commercially-sold honey are more of a marker for stores to rotate in newer, fresher stock. Most honey will sell long before that date nears, but if you pick up a bottle with just a few months left on its "best-by window," you can rest assured that honey is fine for a long time to come.

 

So, next time you add honey to a dessert or spoon it into tea to soothe a sore throat, you'll know that its benefits go way beyond flavor. And you can now justify buying as much honey as you please — it won't expire.
