Heating Honey Properly

When it comes to heating the honey you’ve work so long to collect, you can’t afford to run the risk of overheating it and destroying all the nutrients that make it so nutritious. That’s why honey bottlers need a solution for heating honey properly, without killing enzymes and antioxidants. And the Powerblanket® Bee Blanket offers that very solution.

The Powerblanket Bee Blanket was design specifically for heating honey properly. When you employ other heating solutions to heat honey, you run the risk of overheating, and overheating is no small problem. Honey that’s been overheated will crystalize faster and become much harder to work with. But ease of use is not the only concern. In fact, the biggest concern with heating your honey past its ideal temperature is the negative effects it has on the nutritional value of the honey.

If you’re in the business of honey, then you know how nutrient dense it is. This is part of the reason honey is so sought after. Honey is full of enzymes that are essential to our health. Not only that, but honey is also full of antioxidants and flavonoids. However, enzymes, antioxidants, and flavonoid content in honey are all dependent on temperature. In other words, these nutrients are temperature sensitive. If you heat your honey too hot, you’ll lose the nutrient density. Heating honey properly means you can’t go much past 100° F. Doing so causes honey to become an extremely tacky glue-like substance that is difficult to digest. So the moral of the story is this: to maintain the amazing qualities of honey, you have to keep it at the ideal temperature. Let us show you how.

 

The Bee Blanket

The Powerblanket Bee Blanket is an easy-to-install heating solution for honey producers and bottlers. With this insulated vinyl heat blanket, you can heat your honey to the ideal temperature without worrying about overheating.

If you’re in the honey industry, then you know that maintaining the proper viscosity is important for bottling and working with your honey. But, as already mentioned, heating honey through traditional methods will cause you to lose valuable nutrients. Now, here’s where the Bee Blanket comes in.

The difference with the Powerblanket Bee Blanket heating solution is that it maintains the same temperature as a hive. With low-level internal thermostats, you can apply the Bee Blanket and leave it be. There’s no need to worry about overheating your honey, because the Bee Blanket will never get too hot.
