Is there High Fructose Corn Syrup in Your Honey?

April 15, 2014 2 min read

If your honey isn't labeled with the words "pure", "raw", or "organic", it's very likely that it's made with High Fructose Corn Syrup. Current FDA regulations don't necessarily enforce the accurate labeling of all products, and honey is one of those products that are often woefully mis-labeled. Truth be told, it's almost impossible to be 100% certain that the honey you buy in supermarkets these days are actually pure. They may be labeled "pure honey", but there is no guarantee that the product is accurately labeled. Without strict FDA regulations, manufacturers can add HFCS and still pass off a product as "honey".

You can usually find real, pure honey at farmer's markets, so stay away from the supermarket stuff. Thankfully, the FDA may very well soon be passing a regulation that will enforce the proper labeling of honey and "honey products". A draft can be found online, and it makes very clear exactly what can and cannot be labeled "pure honey". For example, many honey products are made from pure honey, but there is high fructose corn syrup added into it. These products would be called "blend of honey and sugar", provided that the honey content is higher than the sugar content.

If it is made with high fructose corn syrup, that too would be clearly labeled on the bottle. Only those very few products that are actually real, pure honey with no added ingredients will be labeled as "pure", ensuring that what you read on the label will actually tell you what is in the product!
