Description

Description

GloryBee’s Bakers Light Amber (BLA) honey is a blend of select honey from around the globe.  Each of these different types of honey are produced on a seasonal basis depending on the floral source and region it is collected from so the blend may vary from batch to batch.  BLA is primarily used by food manufacturers due to the fact that it has a stronger flavor profile and is darker in color than classic clover honey.  This stronger flavor and darker color complements other ingredients such as flour and grains very well, making it ideal for baking.

Shelf Life

Shelf Life

Product shelf life is depending on storage conditions and is highly variable.  This honey should be stored under cool, dry conditions and in a humidity-controlled environment.  The industry standard for shelf life, when stored under optimum conditions, is 24 months from the date of manufacture.

Storage

At GloryBee, we are all about providing authentic, pure bulk honey that provides the taste and quality you are looking for. To ensure this, we work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the honey is safely harvested from the hive, sealed in air-tight containers for transport to our facility, inspected and tested upon arrival, packaged within our facility using stringent food safety standards and shipped to you using food safe transportation. Taking this kind of care means that you receive the quality honey you expect.

Honey Storage FAQS:

What is the shelf life of honey?

Honey stored in sealed containers can remain stable for decades and even centuries! However, honey is susceptible to physical and chemical changes during storage; it tends to darken and lose its aroma and flavor. This is a temperature-dependent process, making the shelf life of honey difficult to define. For practical purposes, a shelf life of two years is often stated. Properly processed, packaged, and stored honey retains its quality for a long time.

What is the best storage temperature for honey?

Processed honey should be stored between 64-75° F (18-24° C). Honey can be exposed to higher temperatures for brief periods; however, heat damage is cumulative so heat exposure should be limited. It is best to minimize temperature fluctuations and avoid storing honey near heat sources.

The recommended storage temperature for unprocessed (raw) honey is below 50° F (10° C). The ideal temperature for both unprocessed and processed honey is below 32° F (0° C). Cooler temperatures best preserve the aroma, flavor, and color of unprocessed honey.

What is crystallized honey?

Honey stored in sealed containers can remain stable for decades and even centuries! However, honey is susceptible to physical and chemical changes during storage; it tends to darken and lose its aroma and flavor. This is a temperature-dependent process, making the shelf life of honey difficult to define. For practical purposes, a shelf life of two years is often stated. Properly processed, packaged, and stored honey retains its quality for a long time. GloryBee guarantees the when properly stored, our honey will remain in a liquid state 90 days from the date of production.

Is honey usually stable?

Honey is highly stable against microbial growth because of its low water activity, low moisture content, low pH, and antimicrobial constituents.
