"Something Is Funny In The Honey!"
deWayne and I love to travel to other places and try their honey. In the above picture we had stopped by a delightful little store off the beaten path to enjoy some wonderful honey.
Unfortunately, there are many businesses who are marketing a honey not so wonderful. A product that appears to be honey, yet in reality it's far from it!
So, the National Honey Board has launched SavetheHoneyBear.com to save 100% pure honey, threatened by honey-flavored syrups.
Everyone knows what’s in the honey bear bottle—or so we thought. One of America’s most timeless kitchen staples, honey, is fading from the marketplace, and an entire industry is in danger.
Honey-flavored syrups are moving onto grocery shelves and consumers may not be able to distinguish between 100% pure honey and similarly-packaged honey-syrup blends.
“Many people don’t realize honey is just one simple ingredient: honey,” said Bruce Wolk of the National Honey Board. “Consumers need to be aware they may not be giving something 100% pure to their family if they don’t take a moment to double-check the label. Many of the honey-syrup blends are packaged very similarly to pure honey.”
Consumers can get involved by checking the label to make sure the only ingredient listed is honey. They can also better their chances by buying local honey from a respected beekeeper.
This is where "The Vintage Bee" should come to mind! deWayne and I are eager to aid you in your dietary needs, as well as educate you about the Lost Art Of Beekeeping.
