A few weeks ago, I bought some honey and used some of it. When I opened it today, there was a small “pop” sound like I had let out some gas. That points to the fact that some fermentation process was going on in the bottle. An indication that the honey may be adulterated – despite all the assurances of the vendor otherwise.
There are several brands of honey sold in supermarkets with labels screaming how Pure and Natural they are despite being the opposite. We know this for a fact but because we are left with really little choice, we go right ahead and purchase them.
Adulterated honey is a big deal, especially for people that are trying to cut out sugar from their diet. At one point, I gave up on our local honey and went the way of liquid Stevia but the need to keep it refrigerated is such a bother in Nigeria where power supply is an issue, that I moved back to “pure” honey. Looks like I am going to go back to Stevia – the powdered version – until I find an original local supply of honey.
Here is a comprehensive list of tests you can perform on your honey to find out if it real or not.
Please let me know what brand of honey you tested and what the results are. I will post some results soon too.
