'All Your Honey Are Belong To Us!' - China

Came across a really interesting article on honey the other day over at Foodista. They referenced an article by Food Safety News showing that most honey sold here in the U.S. has had all of it's pollen filtered out, making it impossible to trace the origin, which likely means it's ultimately from China. And since the Chinese generally have no problems selling us highly adulterated shit, some people might find that problematic. Worth looking into more if you use honey at all and would prefer to know that what you're using actually is real honey.

Here's a link to the shorter version on Foodista.

Here's a similar article on Huffington Post.

A longer (3 page) article published last year by abc news- Tainted Honey Sparks Push for FDA Standard.

And here's the Food Safety News article (a bit long, but worth reading) - Tests Show Most Store Honey Isn't Honey.
