Most commercial brands sell honey at low or discounted prices because of its adulteration. As a matter of fact, the adulteration practice in honey is obligatory due to the following reasons:
– Pure, natural honey varies in color, taste, and aroma according to its floral source, and commercial brands require uniform honey in large quantities which is next to impossible.
– Pure and naturally organic honey tends to granulate as white crystals (sooner or later). This phenomenon of natural honey is not favorable for commercial brands. Adulterants like rice syrup do crystallize.
– Commercial brands usually require large quantities of honey at low and constant prices, which is not possible because of the scattered production of natural honey.
