Honey – can it be faked?
Honey is one of those products that nature offers us that is full of healthy attributes and medicinal properties, just the way it is. Made by bees not man, its hard to imagine why ‘we’ would tamper with the perfection of nature and compromise the health benefits of pure, natural, unfiltered honey that comes directly from bees to our tables without any real need for processing.
But tamper we do and it is now estimated that over 75% of honey on a supermarket shelf has been processed in some way. Heat processing, plastic packaging, filtration, chemical additives and dilution are all standard elements in honey processing and all this happens at the expense of the micronutrients and health promoting ‘pollens’ that pure honey contains. Be discerning about where your honey comes from. There are plenty of bees who want to give us the best!
