How to Check if Your Honey is Pure or Adulterated?

How to Check if Your Honey is Pure or Adulterated?

Loudfood Pure Honey is 100% natural and pure, of course. There are many honey brands available in the market and not every honey out there is pure, obviously! So, how do you identify pure honey from the adulterated one? Here, we are going to share with you the foolproof ways or tricks to make your job easy. 

The Honey in Water Test

This is probably the easiest way to check whether the honey you bought is pure or just a sugar syrup! Just fill a glass with normal water and add a tablespoon of honey to the water. Pure honey will quickly settle down at the bottom while an adulterated honey will dissolve in the water even quicker!

The Matchstick Flame Test

This is really interesting! Just dip a dry matchstick in honey and light it. If the honey is adulterated, it won't light. But if the honey is pure it will light without any problem because pure honey has inflammatory properties.

The Easy Thumb Test

Dip your thumb in honey and hold it upright. If it spreads all over your thumb, then you just wasted your money on sugar/maple syrup. But, if it just sticks on your thumb without dripping, then that's the sign of pure honey.

The Absorbency Test

Drop some honey on a kitchen tissue and see whether it is absorbed. Pure honey won't get absorbed while adulterated honey will be easily absorbed.

So, now you know how to easily identify or differentiate pure honey from impure honey. Loudfood is very serious about the quality of honey we produce here and hence, you can trust us on purity. Buy our products from and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
