UNAM experts warn about risks of adulterated honey


The term “adulterated honey” means any honey to which has been added honeydew, glucose, dextrose, molasses, sugar, sugar syrup, inverted sugar, or any other similar product or products, other than the nectar of floral exudations of plants gathered and stored in the comb by honey bees.

The Beekeeping Module of the FES Cuautitlán warned about the adulterated honey that is consumed in our country. 

The university points out that honey that is harmful to health could be adulterated with sweeteners, flavorings, and colorings, so the ideal is to consume the natural product of bees.
