Contact us indicating the type of honey, the batch number shown on the lid of the jar, the order number, and the name of the person who placed the order. If you can, enclose a photo: we will assess the best solution.


At the time of extraction from the honeycombs, all the honeys are highly viscous liquids. All honeys undergo a process in which the natural sugars they contain tend to aggregate in the form of crystals, transforming the product into a relatively finely grained and compact mass.

The crystallisation process can vary greatly depending on the origin of the honey and therefore its composition. Some honeys remain liquid for several months (acacia, chestnut, honeydew) and others crystallise already in a couple of weeks (dandelion, rapeseed, sunflower), while most take a few months to complete the process. 

Crystallisation is not a defect but a natural evolution of the product.

By law, it is mandatory to indicate on the label an expiration date of not more than three years from when the honey was jarred. Up to this date, the food product retains all its specific properties under suitable storage conditions.

Honey is a long-life product and even when stored at length or mishandled, it never becomes dangerous to health. However, its most particular characteristics (fragrance and beneficial properties) are relatively fragile. The rate of deterioration is proportional to the storage temperature: at a cool (cellar) temperature, honey retains its properties for several years, while at 25-30°C it would lose them in a few months. Therefore, no special storage precautions are necessary for a jar that is being consumed, but any product stock, to be stored for several months, must be kept in a cool room.

A crystallised honey, stored for a long time or at high temperatures, tends to form a separate liquid layer on the surface. Phase separation is therefore an aesthetic defect indicating inadequate storage. A honey separated into phases is still usable. If the defect occurs during storage at home, it is an indication that the conditions provided are not ideal.

A very common feature in compact crystallised honeys are whitish outcrops or marbling on the surface and sides (sometimes even deeper) of the honey mass. These are spots where the honey has dried due to contact with air bubbles incorporated during the preparation phases. 

Heating honey to make it fluid is definitely wrong. High temperatures alter the natural composition of honey, denaturing many important nutritional qualities, such as minerals and vitamins.

For ease of use, avoiding spoiling the product. It is recommended to melt the honey in a water bath.
