Honey is used in our daily lives, whether inside our tea, on our toast or even as a sweetener in your food. Most people have been purchasing regular honey from supermarkets not aware that they are purchasing something unhealthy. Brands of honey sometimes blend cheap sugar or other sweeteners into their honey in order to lower their costs and improve their profits, then they label their product as “pure honey” without disclosing the added ingredient.
“More than three-fourths of the honey sold in U.S. grocery stores isn’t exactly what the bees produce, according to testing done exclusively for Food Safety News.”
The best way to avoid this is to buy honey labeled Organic, Raw or Local.
“The main difference between regular and raw honey is that regular honey is pasteurized and filtered. Pasteurization is the process where honey is heated at high temperatures to kill any yeast that may be present in order to prevent fermentation. It’s also done to keep the honey from becoming granulated, making it look better to consumers.” Leaf.tv
“Raw honey contains all of the nutrients necessary for good health: vitamins A, C, D, E and high concentrations of the B-complex vitamins including thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid. Raw honey also has beneficial enzymes and other nutrients. High heat kills most of the enzymes and some vitamins, so pasteurized honey doesn’t have as many health benefits as raw honey. One of the enzymes raw honey contains is amylase, which aids in digestion by helping predigest bread and other starchy foods.” Leaf.tv
Next time you go to a supermarket bee sure to choose the right honey and bee-ware of the fake brands.
