TO BEE OR NOT TO BEE
Pure honey is exactly what it says it is - 100% pure honey - and has only 21 calories per teaspoon. There are no added ingredients because it is all natural. Honey is simply made by bees and bottled by people.
So, why the puzzlement? Because companies are making products that are known in the industry as Honey Pretenders.
Buyer Beware: A honey pretender is a product that looks like honey and may even taste like honey. But if you look closely at the label it is actually made from other sweeteners mixed with honey or colored to look like honey (sometimes referred to as a honey blend).
These non-pure honey products are baffling consumers because the label clearly says "honey" even though the product has been adulterated and is not 100% pure honey.
Whether labeled as Blended Honey, Honey Blend or Honey Syrup, non-pure honey pretender products appear to represent a serious threat to the sales of pure honey.
