Fake honey found in Australian-sourced brand Capilano and more

One in five samples of local honey sourced along the eastern seaboard of Australia, including boutique brands, has been found to be fake, deepening the global scandal over the impurity of honey.

The study, which tested five raw samples of honey and 95 local and global-branded honey, found 27 per cent were adulterated. But the big shock was Australian honey. Of the 38 honey samples sourced from supermarkets and markets, 18 per cent, or almost one in five, detected adulteration. The states implicated in the scandal include Victoria, Queensland, NSW and Tasmania.
