I thought "raw" meant "uncooked.
My label says "raw honey" and no one has argued with me about it.
Not to go off topic but what makes "raw milk" raw?

Honey in raw form is very useful for health because when it is in that form it contain everything that comes naturally from it.So i prefer having it in that form.
There are a number of attempts to get around this. In TN I see "raw milk" offered for $8 a gallon, but with the disclaimer "sold for animal consumption only." I suspect not many people are going to pay $8 a gallon and then not drink it themselves.
There are also "cow share" programs where you pay a nominal fee to become part owner of a cow. Then, since you own part of the cow, it is allegedly already your milk because it was produced by your cow, so it is not being "sold". Of course, there is a processing fee to stable the cow and milk it, usually close to that same $8 per gallon.
Anyone for a "bee share" program? If state law says you can't sell your honey ..... sell a share of the bees instead.

I am a part of a "bee share" when I buy bulk honey from another beekeeper. I'm not buying honey I'm buying a share in the bees and honey is my profit.
> what makes "raw milk" raw?
It's not pasteurized. Raw honey has no official definition, but it is generally held to be honey that is not heated past what it would be in the hive.
