Hi Leslie, great question!
I believe in small doses, it’s fine to heat honey but generally, I’d recommend switching to maple syrup, or coconut sugar if you’re going to be baking or heating at high temperatures. Heating honey up on the stove on low heat, or adding it to your tea, is perfectly fine. Many of the nutritional benefits of honey may also be removed by heating at high temps.

There has actually been a study around heating honey and how this may cause deleterious effects. This study was combined with ghee and done on rats, you can read the full article here –

“The study revealed that heated honey (>140°C) mixed with ghee produces HMF which may produce deleterious effects and act as a poison in due course.”

Let me know your thoughts!
