Honey-bath--oats-283pxFurthermore, there's also the issue of fake honey being sold as the real thing …

According to Food Safety News: "A favorite con among Chinese brokers was to mix sugar water, malt sweeteners, corn or rice syrup, jaggery, barley malt sweetener or other additives with a bit of actual honey. In recent years, many shippers have eliminated the honey completely and just use thickened, colored, natural or chemical sweeteners labeled as honey."

High quality raw honey has many health benefits, but you have to know what you're looking for. Most store bought honey is filtered and pasteurized, which removes most of the beneficial nutrients and basically leaves you with liquid sugar. Manuka honey is the top of the line in terms of quality, both for internal and external use. In fact, the FDA has approved Manuka honey to be used in wound and burn care in the United States. If you can't find Manuka, your next best option would be raw honey produced by a local beekeeper.
