Raw honey, processed honey, what’s the difference?

Raw honey is straight from the hive with very little processing.  John Timmons with the Missouri Bee Keepers Association says raw honey contains fine particles of pure beeswax and pollen. The processed commercial honey you find in the store is heated and more finely filtered for a clear look. He says processing extends the shelf life of honey.
