Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn't Honey

More than three-fourths of the honey sold in U.S. grocery stores isn’t exactly what the bees produce, according to testing done exclusively for Food Safety News.  The results show that the pollen frequently has been filtered out of products labeled “honey.”  The food safety divisions of the World Health Organization, the European Commission and dozens of others also have ruled that without pollen there is no way to determine whether the honey came from legitimate and safe sources.  Here at Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market, our honey is 100% real honey with a nice selection of local honey products.
