    apparently not - see http://www.lolacanola.com/Frequently...by%20Lola.html
    my understanding is that beneficial enzymes are destroyed if honey is heated to more than 40 degrees C

    sorry - now that i'm somewhat more caffeinated i see that reply wasn't especially clear.
    what you want for the "raw honey + virgin coconut oil" treatment is honey that hasn't been heated to over 40 C.
    apparently pasteurizing honey entails temperatures around 60-70 C - but apparently there are also processes
    that involve heating honey to temperatures over 40 but less than 60 ... if you see what i mean.
    so if in doubt, ask the producer what temperatures are involved in the processing of the honey you're interested in.
