How to Detect Fake Honey (It’s Everywhere), Use THIS Simple Trick

How to Detect Fake HoneyDo not make the mistake of buying the cheapest honey in supermarket just to save a dollar.

The universal truth holds true in this case because you get what you pay for you may be surprised to know you’re not buying pure honey in some cases.

This is false/misleading advertising.

In order to lower the price, the chemical make-up of honey is often subjected to numerous alterations.

A public research study conducted by the Food Safety News provided a rather alarming find concerning honey. They have discovered that up to 76% of all types of honey available in supermarkets have been subjected to a process called ultra filtration.

This filtration process removes impurities like wax traces, but also the pollen as well.

The manufacturers say that this process is needed in order to prevent “crystallizing and to prolong the shelf life of the product.” Little do the consumers know that pollen is extremely important and beneficial to our bodies.

According to these researchers, the main reason to avoid honey thats been teated by this process is the inability to determine the geographical origin of the honey, as in cases of pollen contamination, the origin needs to be analyzed and traced.

Chinese honey is one such example. It is often contaminated with illegal antibiotics and some metals, since producers process honey in this way in order to import it, and its origin is unknown.

Therefore, we can suggest a few brands and places where you can purchase honey which lacks pollen:

  • Honey types sold at Walgreen’s and CVS Pharmacy do not contain pollen.
  • Certain packages of KFC and McDonald honey do not contain pollen.
  • Honey Winnie the Pooh which can be bought at Walmart does not have pollen.
  • 77% of the honey sold at Costco, Target and Sam’s Club do not have pollen.

Moreover, there are also honey types which have been combined with glucose, as well as others which are high in poor-quality mead. Adulterated honey is honey that is not in its purest possible form.

How to Recognize Fake Honey:

  • If your honey does not “crystallize” over time, there is a good chance it may be adulterated, since the pure one will crystallize when kept in the fridge.
  • Always read the labels: Always read the label on the honey, and if it contains commercial glucose or high fructose corn syrup, avoid it.
  • Add a few iodine drops into a glass of water and add in some honey afterwards. If your honey turns a blue colour it has been combined with corn starch.
  • Add a couple of drops of vinegar into a mixture of water with honey. If you see foam, your honey has been adulterated with plaster.
  • Burn the honey with phosphorus or a match, and if it ignites, it is pure honey.
  • Place a spoon of honey into a glass of water. In case the honey does not dissolve, it is pure. Fake honey or poor-quality honey dissolves in water.
