Manuka honey fraud – what else is fake in our food?

Extra virgin olive oil, haddock, organic eggs, vodka, saffron, tea and coffee. This is not a shopping list of products for a gourmet with expensive tastes, but a list of food that is most commonly doctored or fraudulently labelled, according to a recent European Parliamentary report into food safety.

And now further evidence has come to light about Manuka Honey being frequently mislabelled, with consumers paying well over the odds for common-or-garden honey when they think they are getting the rare stuff from New Zealand. Only one of the seven samples tested by a laboratory was found to have the requisite levels of the active ingredient. This study comes just a year after it was found that there was more honey labelled as Manuka on UK shelves than was produced in a single year.

The GOD nector there is more to honey than they tell us. I hate how they cheat on store labels and give people high fructose corn syrup and claim its honey.

Actually, in the Us. most bees are not kept for honey. They are kept for commercial pollination. There is a LOT more money moving your hives around and getting paid to pollinate than to produce honey.

It is believed that this practice is partly to blame for bee population decline.

Interesting how much fraud we find when we open our eyes and really look at what's really in there Vail of lies. Honey is a cure and a very special vibrational medicine. Sadens & angers me the sheeple don't see the importance of purity & truth. At least many on these forums and social media are aware of this evil being brought into the human food supply.

Yes bees are so important for healthy agaculture production. We are doomed without them and I must and want purity in my honey. My monthly shipment of the real stuff that keeps me in super human health of a trusted seller is vital to me. But I will still be on the search to check what's out there globally good & bad. Next stop Israel and there claim of great honey I shall put there USA shipment to the test.

i saw a documentary once that said newfoundland bees were the best in the world.

here is something on it..

'Newfoundland’s worldwide advantage

Goulding said the future is bright for beekeeping in Newfoundland. He described the island as a "beekeepers' paradise", because local bees do not have the diseases or pests that are common on the mainland.

"We’re the only place in the world, pretty well, that [doesn't] have the mite that is causing havoc with beekeepers across North America, Europe and Asia," he said.'

Quote:Antimicrobial activity of different Finnish monofloral honeys against human pathogenic bacteria

The antimicrobial activity and phenolic compounds of five Finnish honey products against important human pathogens Streptococcus pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and methicillin-resistant S. aureus were analyzed. Microbroth dilution method and HPLC-DAD were used in antimicrobial testing and phenolic compound determination, respectively. Significant antimicrobial activity (p < 0.01) against all the tested pathogens was found from willow herb (Epilobium angustifolium), heather (Calluna vulgaris), and buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) honeys. This is the first report on antimicrobial activity of Finnish monofloral honeys against streptococcal and staphylococcal bacteria. To our knowledge this is also the first report on the antimicrobial effect of honey against S. pneumoniae.

That is some high vibration nector I had left a little on my spoon and that ants senced it from out side and went wild. I keep it in my frigerater but they still senced that nector and where all over the drops in the spoon. Funny how i can leave other food item and they don't come in but honey has no rules every ant for himself. Those ants also were sucking the nector out of my tomato plant stems outside had to blast them off with the hose every other day. This wild looking mantis with orange antlers has been on my last good tomato plant for over a month now. Interesting how these insects know.
