4 tips for easy recognition of original honey from “fake” honey
There are tips from experienced herbalists and beekeepers that can help make it easier to identify original honey when buying honey. Buy honey from a proven producer or apply the tips when buying.
- Honey should drip slightly from the spoon-honey is original if it leaks from the spoon instead of dripping from the spoon.
- Trick with a jar of honey jar upside down. The balloon should then move easily to the top. Honey is not original if moving to the top does not happen.
- Using paper to check-drip honey on a paper napkin. Leave for a while. Original honey should not break through the paper.
- Immerse the match test first in honey. Then light a match. The original honey burns and then the match with the honey should light up. Be careful with fire if you apply this test.
