The Identity of Pure Honey
Aug 28, 2021
The real health benefits of honey are only found in pure honey that is gathered by honey bees from the nectar of real flowers without adding any artificial flavours. Sadly, original honey is prone to adulteration to increase production and sales. And a customer might be not able to detect by its appearance as it resembles pure honey. These adulterants not only affect the quality of pure honey but also have negative impact on health. Adulteration can happen in two ways. Direct adulteration by adding artificial substances to honey. And under indirect adulteration, honey bees are fed with artificial sugar syrups. SIMPLE WAYS TO CHECK HONEY’S PURITY – Nature's Box
Before buying honey, make sure it is pure. There are few simple techniques like
Honeycomb test - Add 1 tablespoon of honey to 1 cup of cold water in a wide bowl and rotate it. If you see the forming a hexagonal honeycomb pattern, it is pure honey.
