How to recognize Original Honey?

  • Honey is usually thick and very sticky, so you can test it with a small amount of honey on your finger.
  • Pour a spoonful of honey into a glass of water and slowly stir it to observe. If it is raw honey, the honey will spread like small lumps in the water.
  • Moreover, natural honey never foams, so when buying honey, if it foams after mixing a little water and two-thirds of vinegar, it is fake honey.
  • Natural honey catches fire easily, so you can check by soaking a small cotton ball in honey and setting it on fire.
  • If honey is kept at home for a long time, sugar falls in the honey. So, you can check if the honey is pure by keeping the jar of honey in hot water for a while.
  • Mix a few drops of honey on the blotting paper to check if the honey is real or fake.
  • You can also apply honey on a stained white cloth and leave it for half an hour to check whether the honey is dry. Because if there is a stain after washing the clothes smeared with honey, it is fake honey.
  • Also, you can check by keeping the honey in the fridge, as the original honey never freezes in the cold.
