Simple Trick to Detect if Your Honey is Raw or Fake

Beware of this scam because it is very common. You can easily sell sugar syrup at an astonishing price by saying that it is organic raw honey! So here is a tip, long used by our grandmothers to recognize true natural honey from false honey.

  • Mix in a cup of water and honey and add a drop of apple cider vinegar. If the honey does not foam, it contains plaster and it is false.
  • If the honey does not crystallize especially in winter, means that it’s not pure and organic.
  • Real honey ignites when lit with a match, so be sure to try this trick to see if the honey you have is truly organic.
  • And last but not least, ALWAYS check the label of the honey you buy. NEVER buy it  if it contains high fructose corn syrup or glucose.
