However, due to the increased adulteration of honey, it has become more important than ever to choose the right honey for you and your family. The three main problems affecting the purity of honey are C3 and C4 sugars (cane, corn and rice sugars) and antibiotic or pesticide residues.
So how can you check if you are consuming the right honey? Are there traditional ways to test the purity of honey at home? Based on Prakash KejriwalOwner, Nature’s nectar, unfortunately there is no way to test the purity of honey at home. Honey is one of the most contaminated foods in the world, and the adulteration of honey has become so high-tech that its purity can only be verified through laboratory tests.
Nature’s nectar one of the few honey brands that proves the purity of its product and meets the NMR test. The NMR or Nuclear Magnetic Resonance test is a comprehensive test criterion for checking the quality, adulteration and authenticity of honey.
“If you are consuming honey that is not 100% pure, you should know that it is doing more harm than good. Impure honey should be avoided at all costs,” Kejriwal said.
Nature’s nectar part of the Kejriwal Group, a pioneer in Indian honey exports since 1996. It is also the first True Source certified company in the world. One of the largest exporters of honey from India, Nature’s nectar it sources honey from all over the country and works directly with more than 30,000 beekeepers, whom the company trains and pays a fair price.
Since the purity of honey cannot be determined just by looking at the jar, consumers are advised to look at the label and look for an NMR test. Even if a brand claims to sell “pure honey,” its product may be diluted with C3 and C4 sugars. For this reason, it is always preferable to consume honey with an NMR test.
“It’s called honey Madhu in Sanskrit which literally translates like this Amrit elixir. However, if it is not pure, it is close to a slow poison. So, before you take out a jar of honey next time, ask yourself: what is the cost of your health? Kejriwal said.
