Fake Honey in Market: Your Honey is a Sugar Syrup, not an Original Honey

In a recent investigation conducted by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) revealed that most of the major Indian honey brands being sold in the Indian markets as pure have failed to pass the adulteration test in Germany. As per the study, all the top honey brands contain sugar syrup instead of the real honey.

"It is a food fraud more nefarious and more sophisticated than what we found in our 2003 and 2006 investigations into soft drinks; more damaging to our health than perhaps anything that we have found till now - keeping in mind the fact that we are still fighting against a killer Covid-19 pandemic with our backs to the wall," said CSE Director General Sunita Narain. "This overuse of sugar in our diet will make it worse," she added.

It also revealed that present Indian standards for honey purity check cannot detect the adulteration. This is mainly because of specially designed sugar syrups by Chinese companies to bypass these standards, said by the CSE.
