I continue to be amazed at the low prices of some honey at the grocery store. Some of it is "USA" and "American produced."
But the price is so low at the retail level, I can't imagine what the wholesale price would be...or what price the beekeeper received for this honey.
I suspect some kind of adulteration, but I'm not really in the mood to go on a witch hunt. Still, my curiosity is piqued. I want a level playing field for my hard work and the price I feel my honey deserves as I stand behind the table at the Farmer's Market to assure the customer this is really "pure" honey.
You'd be surprised how often I'm asked that question: "Is this pure honey?"
I'm also asked, "Do you have bees?" I just smile and tell them I do.
So my question is: is there a process, a test, or some lab that can analyze honey to detect if it is adulterated with HFCS or sucrose? Or can I have my honey tested to demonstrate the purity of my honey?
