Most honey sold in the USA is FAKE or ADULTERATED?
Research commissioned by Food Safety News found that over 70% of honey options available in US grocery stores are fake, or have been processed so much that most food laws around the world would prevent them from being labeled as 'honey'
So.. What can I do?
1. Best option - Buy from a beekeeper you know.
If you don't know one, ask around at your farmers market.
2. Buy local honey. With your own town or state on the label.
3. Buy directly from a US beekeeper. If you can't find a local beekeeper, find one that sells direct farm to table.
4. Buy US only honey. This is not the same as 'US Grade A'.
Honey packers have an incentive to buy the cheapest honey.
