Honey, the product of hard bees is undoubtedly one of the most useful products on Earth that offers countless health benefits, informs Rus.Media.
It can be used for the treatment of various diseases. However, in the market there are many types of fake honey labelled as organic, which are offered at the lowest prices.
According to a study conducted by Food Safety News, more than 76% of all honey sold in markets are fake.
This process removes all the impurities from the honey, including traces of pollen and wax.
Saying that infiltration is important for extending the period of use of the product and to prevent crystallization, and also eliminates the many benefits of honey for health.
Apparently, this process serves to conceal the geographical origin of honey. Chinese producers have infected the honey with antibiotics and metals illegal to import it.
That’s why we should avoid this med, because in the case of contamination of pollen is important to track and analyze the origin of the product.
Here are some ways that can help to identify fake honey:

— Add a tablespoon of honey in a glass of water and if it melts, it’s fake.
— Add a few drops of vinegar in a glass of water and add a little honey. If the honey starts to foam, this is a clear indication that he is not organic.
— Add a little honey and a few drops of iodine in a glass of water. If the color of honey becomes blue, then it was mixed with corn starch.
— Carefully check the label of the product. If it contains corn syrup, high fructose or commercial glucose, avoid it.
