15 August 2012. RIA-Novosti Infographics. Is It from Bees or Is It from a Factory? How to Distinguish Natural Honey

 

______________________________

On 14 August, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of Honey Spas (Honey Saviour), since olden days, it’s been the start of the honey collection season. People believed that the honeycombs in the beehives were filled to capacity in mid-August. Today, many producers of honey don’t wait for the natural maturation of the product, so they use many dodgy industrial tricks. To find honey without impurities and various additives is difficult. In order to make more profit, unscrupulous manufacturers product dilute honey with sugar syrup, and add flour, starch, chalk, and even sand. The result is something that looks like natural honey. However, attentive consumers notice an “off” consistency, foaminess, lack of flavour, or an unnatural sourish odour.
