HONEY: powder

Postby AuntBee » Wed Apr 26, 2017 10:21 pm

Augusson Farms sells powdered honey. Since real honey doesn't spoil, why would anyone store honey powder? Unless it's b/c the powder weighs much less? Or is there a secret recipe?

That does seem odd. Wonder how it reconstitutes, as far as consistency? I would think some of the antibacterial properties / benefits would be gone by dehydrating it?

just like anything else concentrated - more in a smaller space - from what I see the usual reconstituting mix is 50/50 with water ....

users seem to be referring to it as "honey syrup" - some aren't pleased with that and the sweetner additives ....

Guessing it may not be pure honey but maybe something called :honey powder" like was said above.

Aunt Bee, just don't forget to buy a supply of dehydrated water for your stash.

I bought a small can a couple years ago, it sucked, threw it out, went back to 100% pure honey.

Aunt Bee, don't listen to OARS. I bought a can of dehydrated water a while back. When I opened it, it was empty!

I like Augason Farms. So far, everything I've tried was good. Haven't tried the honey. I store the real thing.

Nice...Didn't know about the no shipping over $35...I normally avoid them vs Amazon since their website is clunky and slow but their prices are right there if not sometimes better than amazon and I'm prime there....I have to say, other than groceries, 99% of our stuff comes from amazon....You can see why brick and mortar is going bye-bye....I do try to support mom and pop as much as possible, but the price differences sometimes are huge.

Going to Wal-Mart today to check it out....Thanks again to all imputers in the last few days in the different threads talking about your experiences with AF. :thumbup:

Maybe they buy it because
(a) they don't realize honey stores forever;
(b) they figure they can store more because with the liquid removed, so is a lot of the bulk/weight
c) they're worried about not having enough honey to last.

I have several quart jars of honey that I have been buying from a local beekeeper. (I go through about a quart every 4-6 weeks) Next year, I hope to not have to purchase any more honey AT ALL, since my bees are now here, and I'm hoping to be able to start to harvest around this time next year. At that point, I'll be harvesting, jarring, and storing my OWN honey. (although I'll probably have to set up several more hives, since son-in-law wants to start making mead.)

The following is from their website! First you do not know where it came from. Second Ingredients: Honey Powder (Refinery Syrup, Honey), Fructose.

Why don't they just call it what it is? Oh that's right - Would anybody buy - Powered Chinese Honey Flavored Syrup!

Just add de-hydrated H2O and you're good for life. Buying me a couple cases of each.

One case I'm going to send to Reb, free of charge.

Your images did not come up for me. Knowing you, they are probably hilarious.

Swamp, Dollar Tree, which is almost 100% Chinese imports, sells "honey". If you read the ingredients it is only honey flavored sugar syrup.
