  1. Dear SIr,

    I have read in many places that Dabur honey is not pure and that it contains many of the antibiotics that are fed to the bees to increase the production of the honey. However, almost none of the articles I have read suggest an alternative to Dabur honey. So, requesting your advice on the same. Which would be a good and safe brand of honey to buy?

    Thank you.

    • You are really putting me in trouble 🙂
      I honestly do not know. Basically, if any company can dare to sell the honey with all the lab test results for antibiotics, heavy metal analysis etc, it would be great. If someone knows of such a brand, with proof, I will be more than happy to share the same.

  2. Consuming hot honey like in boiling/very hot water is not good, correct? Does this mean that consuming processed honey which has been heat treated (or liquefied) is also not beneficial?

    I haven’t seen any honey bottle declaring if it has been heat processed or not…Is there a way to tell if honey has been heat treated or to tell the quality of honey in general, by doing some home inspection/tests?

    • If we think in a purist way, we cannot use any honey at all. Let us buy the best brand of honey from the market, which does not have any traces of antibiotic etc. and let us not boil it / excess heat it once it is in our hands. This should help in keeping our peace of mind. 🙂
