1 in 5 Samples of Australian Honey found to be impure
We know there’s nothing sweeter than honey, but how do we know if that honey is pure? You may have heard about a recent study which found 1 in 5 samples of Australian honey was found to be impure. Samples from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania were tested. NSW was one of the worst offenders with 50% of honey samples found to be impure. However the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council assures Consumers that Australian honey is still clean, green and the best in the world.
We were joined by Trevor Weatherhead, the executive director of the Australian Honey bee industry council to talk about the study.
