Ways to Recognize Fake Honey:
- Pure honey will crystallize over time. If the one you buy do not crystallize when kept in the fridge, possibly, it is not a pure honey
- Read the labels before you buy. If the honey contains high fructose corn syrup or commercial glucose, do not purchase it.
- Mix a few drops of iodine with a glass of water then add some honey into it. If the color of your honey turns into blue, then it has been combined with corn starch.
- Mix a few drops of vinegar with a glass of water then add some honey into it. If you see some foam, means your honey has been adulterated with plaster.
- Burn your honey with a match or phosphorus and see if it ignites. Pure honey will ignites under this condition.
- Add a spoon of honey into a glass of water. If the honey dissolves in water, means it’s a fake or poor quality honey. Pure honey does not dissolve in water.
