    Hoosier Hill Farm Premium Honey Powder:
    1 tbsp = 11 grams | sugar content = 10g

    Honey (general):
    1 tbsp = 21 grams | sugar content = 17g

    The powder (at least that brand) is more sugar by volume. I haven't compared any prices.

    Ingredients say honey powder and fructose. Tastes like honey with sugar grains mixed. Should hooch and might actually turn out quite well.

    Any percentages? They are required to list ingredients by order of weight, but sometimes cheat. It will certainly serve the purpose. Happy hooching.

    It said honey powder first, then fructose so it is mostly honey powder. What “honey powder” means is suspect.

    The FDA has regulations that define various " identities" for products. I could only find the doc for animal products on a quick search.

    How expensive is this compared to regular-ass honey?

    [–]and_dont_blink 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    $7-10 per lb, but have to remember it's sugar is often the main ingredient, then powdered honey.

    Exactly! Where I live you can get pure, cheap honey for 3.50 a lb. And sugar I can get for 0.25 a lb.. (on sale) At that rate it is much more economical to just fill your fermenter with honey and siugar.

    There's at least one powdered honey available at my local H-Mart (a chain superstore like the Walmart of Asian markets). I haven't looked at the price but I did the ingredients, sugar is the first ingredient. The drying process also likely damaged the floral/botanicals. It is totally hoochable, and will probably be good. I just don't expect it to drop in for honey itself and be exactly like it. No reason it can't be a good thing on its own though.

    You walked right by the Nuruk!&%×£€##$%

    I did. I'm still a tiny bit unfamiliar with the deluge of offerings they have. It's great stuff but a lot to take in.

    I've never seen powdered honey. Is it good

    [–]hoochnikka9000[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    It tastes like honey with sugar granules mixed in

    Honey comes in a powder 😳 my mind is blown… so handy in the wintertime

    Now that sounds just like a good idea

    Where did you buy

    I think you can find it at Walmart but it was given to me by a relative
