Don’t Buy This Honey, Honey

Mar 05, 12 Don’t Buy This Honey, Honey

You know that honey you have in your pantry? The Sue Bee and Winnie the Pooh that you love drowning your Greek yogurt in or using along with your French Maid outfit with your hombre. That’s not real, honey, chica. Get rid of it. And here’s why. It’s faker than Susana Maria’s breasts. Colombian implants, girl.

Based on a recent report by the Food Safety News the study revealed that up to 76% of the honey sold at stores and restaurants like Costco, McDonalds and Walmart were tested and were completely absent of pollen. Okay. Who cares? Let me break it down for you. That means, some crooked brokers sell a mixture of sugar water, corn or rice syrup, or other additives and label it “real” honey to sell it to you. The FDA even discovered some of it was tainted with illegal antibiotics and heavy metals that can cause DNA damage and cause cancer. Virgen Santisima! And nearly all of it is made in China. Point blank. If traces of pollen aren’t present, you have an impostor on your hands. Goes to show, “Made in China”, is not always the best choice.

Better to buy pure, natural, unfiltered raw honey at your local Farmer’s Market or natural food stores like Trader Joe’s. Organic is great too. The real stuff is totally nutritious and loaded with enzymes, antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are good for your skin, tames allergies, helps fight viruses such as herpes, and even helps ward off tooth decay. As far as new uses for the vertical mambo? I’ll get back to you on that, later.
