- She said Pasteurized Honey which is smooth and slightly darker is also known as dead honey.
- Charlene added that pasteurization removes some nutrients as opposed to the unpasteurized honey, which is lighter in colour and crystallizes over time.
President William Ruto's daughter Charlene has taken to applying his father's economic model 'Bottom Up' in its literal sense in her bee keeping business.
Charlene, who revealed that she practices bee farming, visited her farm in Eldoret to check on the progress.
In a statement via Twitter, Charlene said while doing spot checks on the hives, she realised that some bees had occupied a hive that had been set upside down.
She said the bees had started forming honey combs.
"We turned the hive upright, harvested the honey present and named it "Bottom Up" for easier observation of its progress," she said.
Charlene said she took time to look at the honey processing process at the bee farm in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu county.
She responded to a question in the comment section on why organic honey hardens over time.
"This is due to crystallisation. All you need to do is put the honey container in warm water to de-crystallise," Charlene responded to the inquisitive social media user.
She further explained the difference between pasteurised and unpasteurised honey.
The first daughter said pasteurised honey is smooth and slightly darker and is also known as dead honey.
She said pasteurisation removes some nutrients as opposed to the unpasteurised honey, which is lighter in colour and crystallises over time.
Charlene said both types of honey are organic and consumers use them based on preference.
