Only a detailed and expert analysis is a guarantee that honey is all natural and organic. But, if you want to know whether the honey you just bought is natural, try these simple tricks.
1. Carefully Read The Label
This is the very first step that will help you choose the right, additive-free honey. Producers are obliged to label the content and the percentage by a certain amount.
2. Real Honey Does Not Stick
This is a good trick. Take some honey and rub it between the tips of your finges. Real honey will absorb in your skin easily. If the honey remains on your fingers and sticks, it means that it is loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Heat a few teaspoons of honey in your microwave. High heat works fine. Real honey will eventually caramelize, and fake honey will become all foamy and bubbly.
Put a few drops of honey on a sheet of paper. If it does not absorb in the paper after a while, you have got some natural honey. Fake honey contains a lot of water and it will absorb in the paper right away.
