    Default Buyer beware: Adulterated honey makes up one third of international trade

    Outrageously, one third of honey in international trade is adulterated or 100% false.

    The Honey Authenticity Project has created three infographics revealing the alarming magnitude and consequences of the rise in adulterated honey. They explain:

    Fortunately, here in Maine there are several local beekeepers where I can get raw organic honey direct from the beekeeper.

    Yes, here is yet another reason to keep our food buying as close to local as possible. I am fortunate to have many local beekeepers quite close to where I live. The coolest was when my friend (and favorite beekeeper) carried out a bee removal project from my neighbor's home. The honey which resulted from that project was just about as local as possible.
