During the fermentation process, natural yeast and other microorganisms in honey can break down the sugar in the honey, causing bubbles in the honey. In extreme cases, fermentation can even create enough air pressure to cause the container in which the honey is stored to rupture or explode.
To prevent honey from fermenting, it is extremely important to ensure hygiene during honey collection and storage. In addition to avoiding excess moisture and impurities in honey, the container in which honey is stored should be kept sealed to prevent air from entering. In order to maintain the quality and edibility of natural wild honey, Yummi House has insisted on using thick glass containers to can the honey for many years.
