Your Fancy Honey Might Not Actually Be Honey

It’s been a while since I have posted anything on my blog but with the social distancing going on as a result of COVID-19 I’ve got some time to get caught up on some long neglected things – including this website. Anyway, there was a recent posting on-line of an article that that I really wanted to share with you. One of my first blog articles back in 2011 and then another in 2016 was about adulterated and mislabeled honey and this 2020 article is about the same thing. If anything, it seems that the problem is getting worse. The government has obviously been unsuccessful in curbing the problem of “funny honey” so the only thing that I can think of is to better educate the consumer to make them aware of the problem. That and KNOWING and TRUSTING their beekeeper is essential to insure that the consumer is actually getting what they are paying for. The article is a pretty long read but well worth the time it takes to read it. Here is the link: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/884kq4/your-fancy-honey-might-not-actually-be-honey
