    Honey should never be heated. When honey is heated it produces a toxic chemical called hydroxymethyl furfuraldehyde (HMF). Heating honey also alters its chemical content (e.g. increases the peroxides).

      Hi JS,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Just as a word of caution before we jump to false conclusions, this study talks about heating honey w/ghee in amounts that are unreasonable for humans. I appreciate the study, but it doesn’t prove heated honey is dangerous. 🙂
