What is the best way to store honey?

Honey’s moisture content (about 17%), low pH and antibacterial properties make it one of the only ingredients in a bakery that will most likely not spoil.

Regardless, it is still very important to store honey properly to maintain its integrity.

• Best stored in a sealed container at room temperature, between 64 to 75°F (18 to 24°C)

• Cooler temperatures, between 35 to 60°F, hasten honey’s natural crystallization process

• Honey stored at temperatures above 85˚F for extended periods of time will darken in color and be subject to subtle flavor changes
