Have you ever heard that there is such a thing as “fake” honey?

Why is this so important?

It is important because the fake honey doesn’t have the same ingredients as the real one, because it is mixed with heavy metals and illegal antibiotics.  Researches show that markets often sell fake honey, and this fake honey usually comes from China and India.

How Can You Test Fake Honey?

There are many methods you can use to check how pure – or impure – the honey you consume at home really is. We will show you few of them.

#1 The Thumb Test.

Pour a little dab of honey on your thumb and check if it sticks. If it does, it means that that’s real honey — fake honey doesn’t stick but run.

#2 The Water Test.

You can also test honey just by using a glass of water. Take a tablespoon of honey and add it into the glass. If it dissolves –it is fake, but if it sinks to the bottom- it’s real honey!

#3 The Fire Test.

Real honey is also flammable — Take a dry match and stick it and then try to light it. If it spark-it is real, if it doesn’t spark – it is fake.

So, it is better and safer to buy honey from a farmer than from a market.
