Honey has a dirty little secret: Your honey is enriched with lead and antibiotics. Spiking Honey is a common practice in the United States. It means that corn syrup or other sweeteners have been added to honey to make it more accessible. In fact, more than 75% of all honey sold in America is not exactly what the bees produce.
According to tests carried out for Food Safety News, honey sold in most conventional stores contained no pollen. Especially when it comes to stores such as Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS, the failure rate was as high as 100%!
Since all the honey purchased in the markets of farmers and natural grocers such as Trader Joe’s contains the full content of pollen. So, where you buy your honey makes a huge difference.

Most honey sold in the US come from China
Ultrafiltration is a process that has two purposes: it gives the honey a longer shelf life and hides the country of origin. Why? Because most of your honey comes from China mixed with high fructose corn syrup and sweeteners, and tainted with pesticides, lead, and antibiotics.

Raw pure honey possesses a strong natural antibiotic property due to the specific enzymes that the bees produce. In fact, it is one of the best natural antibiotics that science knows.
