The demand for honey full of medicinal properties increases significantly during winter. In such a situation, people need to be careful with fake honey. However, in general, the demand for magnificent honey remains intact in every season. But, during winter, its demand is high. During this time, due to increasing demand for honey, some fake people also start selling fake honey. Maybe you too are consuming something wrong by considering good honey in this era. Let us tell you in today's article how you identify the right honey.

Beware of producer of fake honey 

According to data, it is quite difficult to identify the right honey. Because, adulterated honey can be manufactured like real honey. However, there are some easy ways that you can easily identify good honey. For this you add one spoon of honey in a glass of warm water. If honey dissolves in water, it is adulterated. The real honey does not dissolve in water and floats on the surface of the water. Apart from this, you put honey on a wooden stick and put it on the fire. If honey burns like a candle, it is real. Adulterated honey becomes sticky when it burns and does not burn easily.

Important points to note

According to the data, you can easily identify honey by applying honey on a piece of bread. If honey sticks better in bread, it is absolutely real. Because, adulterated honey separates easily from bread. Apart from this, you can also easily identify real and fake honey with the help of labs.
