Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn’t Honey

Food Safety News tested more than 60 samples of honey from grocery stores across the U.S. and found that the majority were missing one crucial ingredient.  Pollen. Technically speaking, honey isn't actually honey without it.  The majority of honey tested had been ultra filtered to the point that no trace of pollen could be found.

Many folks use honey to build an immunity against pollen and allergies, so having the pollen in it is very important. Pollen adds nutrients and antioxidants, and also acts as a biological thumbprint.

Without pollen it's impossible to figure out the origin of the honey and under what conditions it was produced and it might come from questionable origins. Contamination of Chinese and Indian honey is documented, as is the illegal exportation of that honey into the U.S. market.

The article points to some mind boggling statistics and makes another strong case for purchasing local honey.  Read article and get brand names ....
