Honey, especially raw honey, will crystalize over time and turn opaque. It doesn't affect anything.

There are people who feed honey daily. I don't think it has much of an effect one way or the other - these guys are fruit eaters so a high sugar diet is normal for them.

Bee pollen is another option if you want all the nutrition (more, actually) without the excessive sugars.
Thanks for the explanation about the honey colors!Image
I have a tiny tube of bee pollen I got from Cholla Queen on Amazon. I'm not quite sure if the crabby that's up is eating it though. I only offer a little bit to make the tube last. And she tends to throw and mush the food all around the lid. So she might be eating it, or it might be disappearing under a bunch of other food lol.
