How to determine genuine honey?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have been looking for a simple test method to determine honey I buy is genuine honey, not the colored sugar syrup since many years ago.

I learned this below test method from a CCTV documentary program recently. Tick a drop of honey onto a tissue paper and observe its shape and dissipation rate visually.

Genuine honey will hold its parabolic shape for up to 10 minutes while fake honey will dissolve like water very quick.

A reminder to tourists to Cameron Highlands, you may see some orang asli selling honey on the roadside. Don’t assume the honey is genuine just because the seller is orang asli.

A friend of mine told me his business friend hired orang asli to sell fake honey in Cameron Highlands.

Use the quick and simple method I recommended to check the honey is real or fake one.
