“Some Indian companies in the honey business were importing synthetic sugar syrups from China to adulterate honey.
These syrups, said Ms. Narain, were capable of passing off as honey, even up to half of which were mixed with sugar, as ‘pure honey’. "

Damn these Chinese are so good at everything laughing

local unknwn brands like Sohna passed stuck_out_tongue

Even saffola is manufactured by kejriwal bee farm, Zirakpur (Punjab). Saffola might be having other suppliers for other regions but here in North it mainly comes from here only
So effectively all 3 are related to punjab only smile
Sohna is a government of punjab undertaking though

Just thinking why can’t some of them price their honey higher & give pure stuff? Why all companies are resorting to adulteration?

After seeing names like Baidyanath makes me wonder what powder they would be using in their various capsules if they can do this in liquid item like honey.

On opening given link there’s a big advert of Dabur claiming to be NMR profiled pure honey. Clicking the link takes you to a report. Is this a joke by Hindu newspaper?? Poor standard of advertisement choice by newsite..

There is a simple test of honey that I learn as a child. Put a drop in a large glass of water. If in falls to the bottom spherically without losing its shape of getting mixed in water, its pure. Practically all packaged honey fails this test.
I personally get my honey from the collectors working at Sunderbans. The wild variety. Even bee keepers feed their bees on sugar syrup and antibiotics. Not the best option.

I don’t trust local honey here in MH, they don’t sell pure honey.
Used wellknown brands in faith that may be they are less adulterated.
but these mofos have done adulteration upto 80% and still passed FSSAI test.

demand is very high for honey.
there is not enough pure honey in market to meet this demand.
add chinese syrup, bypass FSSAI tests, meet the supply with demand and get money.

Most FSSAI certified (And non certified of course) products are substandard or adulterated (And thats legal confused )
Cut down on packed items as much as possible, bring raw and cook smile

Retired MP school principal made, sold synthetic milk; residents shocked

A chemistry teacher who retired as a Madhya Pradesh government school principal was booked by police on Friday for making and selling synthetic milk in Morena district, 465 km north of Bhopal. The accused is absconding, said police.

The team seized 200 litres of synthetic milk, palm oil and chemicals from the house of the accused, said police.

Adulteration of milk & it’s by-products is rampant. Before Diwali raids were conducted in major sweet shops in my area & most were found to be using adulterated khoa/mawa. Be careful when eating that tempting gulab jamun 😀
