Honey is a powerful natural remedy, and it gives a sweet hint to food. The sticky matter has strong antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effect. Researchers have recognized over 20 vitamins, 18 amino acids, 16 minerals and a lot of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

However, most of the honey you see in supermarkets is fake. Some grocery stores sell adulterated honey that has almost no nutritious value.

Food Safety News conducted a research, and the results were devastating. More than 76% of all honey products sold in supermarkets has gone through “ultrafiltration.” This process eliminates impurities and pollen.

Truth is, these impurities and pollen are important for your health. Without them, honey is nothing but a sticky ingredient.

Pollen helps experts trace the source of honey and its geographic location. The process of ultrafiltration destroys this possibility. It masks the real origin of honey.

Foot Safety News honey samples were evaluated by premier melissopalynologist and professor at Texas A&M University, Vaughn Bryant. He found that ¾ of the the samples have no traces of pollen. These products aren’t safe for consumption, and the fact that they can’t be identified is really scary.

Bryant came across the following findings:

Walmart sells Winnie the Pooh honey with zero pollen
Honey sold in KFC and McDonald’s has no pollen
Honey in Walgreen’s, CVS Pharmacy and other drugstores has no pollen
77% of the honey available in Costco, Sam’s Club and Target has no pollen

Honey offered by co-ops, farmers markets, Trader Joes and other similar stores is packed with pollen.

There’s a fair share of requests for the FDA to prevent the sale of this type of honey in supermarkets, but the agency hasn’t done anything to stop the process.

EU officials changed labeling regulations, and producers are now obliged to list “pollen” as a main ingredient.

We give you a few simple tips on how to determine if you have bought the real stuff.

Thumb test
Put a drop of honey on your thumb and see if it spills around. Real honey is never runny.

Flame test
Soak a dry matchstick in your honey, and then try to light it from the matchbox. Real honey lights with ease, and has a consistent flame. Fake honey is full of water and it doesn’t light.

Water test
Add a teaspoon of honey to a glass of water. Pure honey will stick to the bottom, and fake honey will dissolve easily.

Always buy your honey from trusted sources. That’s the only way to use organic, unpasteurized honey and get the most of its benefits.

Feel free to use honey to relieve any existing health condition. Combine it with ginger, turmeric, garlic and other healthy ingredients to optimize its power. Real honey can do wonders to your health. Add a tablespoon to your lemon water and use it every time you make something sweet.

Honey works well when added in dressings, cookies, cakes, and smoothies. If this is too complicated, just add a tablespoon of honey to your herbal tea. That’s all.
