Refer to article today in most leading dailies, most of the leading brands have been adulterating honey with sugar syrups imported from China that pass through Indian regulatory checks. This is shameful

I have had the fortune of trying actual forest honey from last of the mangrove forests. Have always used this brand and found it to be excellent : https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B08CRT3DM3/ref...

And how can anyone determine ‘quality’ of oil ? It’ll be subjective.

There is an episode on Rotten series in Netflix related to Honey. How China made entry into America with their cheap & fake honey, how America banned it and how China bypassed all the bans and how they fooled Americans. Very nice episode it was. Don’t remember exactly which season was it because I don’t have Netflix anymore but definitely that series was worth watching

Anyone who has tasted and kept honey extracted a from a beehive will know all of these “packed and processed” ones are packed with some preservative and all kinds of undisclosed whatnots despite their claims of being 100% pure honey.

Be that as it may, the final outcome of this too will be just like Maggi’s MSG saga. sad

Adulteration should be a capital punishment crime, tbh. Be it spraying apples with a coat of wax to make them look glossy and shiny or mixing [dirty] water in milk.
Luckily, deliberate mixing of kankar in rice and wheat seems to have gone away.
