I wrote about honey laundering a ways back. Here’s an updated view of the story. Honey being shipped from China and moved around from country to country, labels changing, hoping to find its way to our shelves. What’s interesting about this story are the new lengths that people can go to mask the fact that the honey comes from China. Ultrafiltering can be done to remove all traces of the originating pollen sources and antibiotics. They can even make a fake honey–blending artificial sweeteners with a tiny bit of honey. Now that’s sad! The US produces only 48 percent of the honey it uses each year, so there is a big demand for imported honey.
