Nowadays, there are numerous brands offering fake honey in the markets, especially at shopping malls or super markets, where more than 70% of honey are made from fructose and fragrance. It’s hard for consumer to differentiate natural honey and fake one; however, fake honey will not crystallise at low temperature, whilst pure honey contains high level of glucose so it crystallises at low temperature.
As fake honey contains fragrance, it normally has strong aroma. Good honey has little water content so it would not lead to fermentation or go sour, and it has fewer bubbles. Longan honey has deeper colour like amber, and litchi honey, multiflora honey are lighter in colour.
How to eat honey properly

Only one reminder: Don’t infuse honey with hot water as this will decrease its rich level of nutrients like minerals and vitamins. Honey water tastes the best with 1 part of honey and 12 part of cold or warm water. Adding honey into milk or other beverages is a great idea as well.
