These are the top questions we receive from our fans.
DO YOU SELL CREAM HONEY?
Yes, we do! Our Texas Cream Honey is 100 percent pure honey with no additives. It is “whipped” honey, with a light, clean look, which spreads like butter. Fowler’s Cream Honey has a deliciously unique taste that is family-produced and specially made only at the Fowler Honey Farm. Our famous cream honey is sold in the 10 oz jar and tastes great on just about anything. Thinking of sending someone a Texas themed gift? Our cream honey is perfect!
WHAT IS CREAM HONEY?
Creamed honey is honey that has been processed to control crystallization. Creamed honey contains a large number of small crystals, which prevent the formation of larger crystals that can occur in unprocessed honey. The processing also produces a honey with a smooth spreadable consistency.(Wikipedia)
DOES HONEY AGE?
No, honey does not age. In fact, it is recognized as the only food that doesn’t spoil. It will, however, crystallize over time. If this happens, just remove the lid from the jar; place it in a pan of warm water; and heat it over low heat until the honey returns to its original consistency.
DOES HONEY VARY IN COLOR?
Honey in its natural state is always a shade of rich amber. The shade of amber is determined by the flowers the honeybees feed from.
HOW MUCH DOES HONEY WEIGH?
Honey weighs half again as much as an equal volume of water, according to Convert-To.com. For example, 1 pint of water weighs 16 ounces, but 1 pint of honey weighs 24 ounces.
This is an average metric, but the true weight of honey by volume may vary depending on how much water is present in the honey being used. Store honey in tightly sealed containers in a cool, dry place.
One pint is equal to sixteen (16) ounces. I cup is equal to eight (8) ounces. Therefore two cups would be equal to one pint and one cup would be equal to one half (1/2) of a pint.
WHAT KIND OF HONEYS ARE THERE?
Most of us know honey as a sweet, golden liquid. However, honey can be found in a variety of forms:
Pure Honey or Raw Honey is honey as it exists in the beehive. Raw honey can be minimally processed by extraction, settling or straining, but does not destroy the nutritional value of the honey.
Non-Pasteurized Honey comes straight from the hive. It consists of all natural nutrients.
Pasteurized Honey has gone through a process of heating, temperatures of 161 °F (72 °C) or higher, a high enough temperature to kill potentially harmful bacteria and germs. This heating process breaks down and destroys some of the nutritional value and components of the honey.
Crystallized Honey is natural honey which part of the glucose content has spontaneously crystallized. Natural honey will always crystalize in time. If natural honey does crystallize, it can be returned to a liquid state by gently warming.
Filtered Honey is any type of honey that has been filtered to the extent that all or most of the fine particles, pollen grains, air bubbles, or other materials normally found in suspension have been removed thus making the honey an easier process to flow through the filter. Filtered honey does not destroy the nutritional value of the honey.
Cream Honey, also called whipped honey, spun honey, churned honey, or candied honey, has been processed to control crystallization. The crystallization is controlled so that, at room temperature, the honey can be spread like butter or jelly.
Combed Honey is honey still in the honeybees’ wax comb. The beeswax is edible.
As a side note, most of the honey you find on store shelves is from overseas or is gathered from hives all over the US. It’s heated to a high temperature to prevent crystallization. It’s usually diluted with corn syrup as well. That is certainly NOT the case when you buy Fowler’s Honey.
WHAT IS CRYSTALIZED HONEY?
Crystalized honey (also sometimes called “granulated honey”) is simply honey which has spontaneously crystallized.You may open a jar of honey, and find cloudiness, or that part of it has turned into crystals.
Because our honey is pure, non-pasteurized honey, it will crystalize over time.
Should the honey crystalize, simply remove the lid, place honey jar or bottle in warm water until the honey returns to its original state. Crystalized honey will still have all of its nutritional value and is still safe to eat.

WHERE DOES FOWLER’S HONEY COME FROM?
Our honeybee hives are located in the honey producing brush areas of South Texas.
Our honey bees produce nectar flow from the many types of flowers they feed upon. This results in the type of honey that is produced. The main flowers the honeybees produce nectar from are a mixture of mesquite and huajilla.
IS FOWLER’S HONEY PASTEURIZED AND FILTERED?
Our honey is Non-pasteurized. Fowler’s Honey is pure, raw honey, no additives, all natural nutrients, straight from the hive. We strain our honey so that bits of wax and wing are removed, but we don’t filter it.
WILL FOWLER’S HONEY CRYSTALLIZE OVER TIME? IF SO, HOW DO I TURN IT BACK TO LIQUID FORM?
Yes. Because our honey is pure, non-pasteurized honey, it will crystallize over time.
Should the honey crystallize, simply remove the lid, place honey jar or bottle in warm water until the honey returns to its original state. Crystalized honey will still have all of its nutritional value and is still safe to eat.
