There’s nothing called ‘Pure Honey’ amongst popular brands

Consumer VOICE tested 10 popular brands of honey at NABL accredited labs and found out that NONE OF THE THEM IS 100% pure.

Cane sugar, high-fructose corn syrups and potato syrups are among the most commonly used sweet syrups in honey. This is a serious economic and regulatory problem.

FSSAI vide their notification dated 31/07/2018 has stated that “honey sold as such shall not have added to it any food ingredient, including food additives, nor shall any other additions be made other than honey.” FSSAI has stated 4 parameters for finding out whether the honey is pure or not including C4 Sugar test.

Except one brand which passed the C4 sugar test, none could meet the 4 parameters stated by FSSAI.

Brands tested Included: 24 Mantra, Badiyanath, Dabur, Fresh & Pure, Hitkary, Himalaya, Khadi, Patanjali, Reliance and Zandu.
