Zandu Pure Honey Guarantee

Why Guarantee of Purity is required?

Honey has sugar in form of Fructose & Glucose collected by bees from flowering plants like Mustard, Eucalyptus, Litchi etc. However, sugar (sucrose) sourced from C4 plants like Cane which is cheap and easily available can be broken into Fructose & Glucose through a simple heating process. This is then added to pure honey to reduce its cost. The C4 sugar in Honey is limited to maximum of 7% (as per standard recommended by Codex Alimentarius Commission Guidelines). When C4 Sugar is above this level, the international laboratories consider it as a sure sign of added sugar from external source in honey.

Also, Honey imported in India may contain high quantity of ‘Rice Syrup’ which is essentially other form of sugar like maltose etc. obtained from treatment of starch available in Rice. This addition of Rice Syrup is difficult to test and track. Indian labs are not equipped to test presence of ‘Rice Syrup’. Thus, it is very much required to test honey for purity as per international standards. And only tested honey can be guaranteed for purity.

Tested by the best

Honey collected by Bees from flowering plants like Orange, Litchi, Lemon, Eucalyptus & Mustard, contains Fructose & Glucose. Off late, due to advances in technology and increased knowledge in Honey adulteration, many processors in India have started adulterating honey with cane sugar from sugar cane, Rice syrup and HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup). Cane sugar is the cheapest and unhealthy source of adulterant in Honey. In order to prevent this unethical practices happening in the trade, the Codex Alimentarius has introduced EA-IRMS test to detect sugar addition from Cane sugar in honey from sugarcane. However, this procedure has a limitations since, it does not detect the sugar adulterated from different sources such as High Fructose corn syrup, fruit sugars, wheat etc. So, a new method with LC-IRMS was introduced.

After few years of introduction of these tests, unethical processors have found a new way of adulterating honey with Rice Syrup. European Regulatory body has developed a unique method of testing adulteration of Rice Syrup by TMR. In such a complex situation, only way to provide consumer the best and the purest honey is to ensure the above tests are met. Zandu Pure Honey, is probably the only Indian Honey brand, which conducts all the above mentioned tests for every batch we produce.
