I'm pretty sure it is. My friend just had a baby and she put honey on everything like sandwiches, fries, pouting, etc...
It is, but make sure its pasteurized. No raw honey. Raw honey can pose a botulism risk.
I've never heard of pasteurized honey. But it doesn't have to be pasteurized its perfectly safe to eat.
The honey that comes in a bear is pasteurized... It will specify raw honey on it if its raw. Raw honey tends to be solid at room temp.
I thought that's the reason infants can't eat honey, becuz its not pasteurized?
Babies under one year can't have unpasteurized honey because of the risk of botulism, which is why pregnant women can't have it as well. If you look at the label you can see if its pasteurized or not. The bear honey is usually pasteurized so it's safe to eat. Botulism is a very hard bacteria to kill though which is why professional pasteurization is necessary. Heating raw honey at home won't kill it. It requires high heat and significant pressure.... They usually advise no honey under a year for babies for a couple reasons, most parents would think they are doing better for their child by getting the "natural raw" honey and because infants are especially susceptible to botulism. We had a baby in our practice who contracted botulism (not from honey, from nearby construction) and its terribly frightening. As an adult botulism kills about 30% of people who get it. In infants its more like 50-60%.
My bottle of honey doesn't say its pasteurized or raw, it says nothing.
Star3789 maybe just my brand says it then? Its a store brand from Wegmans.
