Many people bring honey to sell,convincing that the honey they have brought are pure, but when the days passed you will find the honey is impure. For that I've brought the solution for finding whether the honey is pure or not at home.

Here are some simple tests and experiments that can be performed at home, to verify the purity of honey and they are: 

Test A : Using water

  1.  Pour water into a glass.
  2.  Spoon out a tablespoon of honey from the honey jar, you want to test.
  3.  Place the spoon in the glass of water.

Gently stir with spoon.

Conclusion: If the honey starts to dissolve and mix with the water, it’s not pure and some amount of water has been added to it. But if the honey forms a small lump and sinks to the bottom of the glass, it is pure in quality.

Test B: Using fire

  1. Take a dry matchstick.
  2. Dip its tip right into the honey.
  3. Strike the stick on the matchbox as if to light it.

Conclusion: If the honey is pure, the matchstick will light with ease.The flame will also keep burning off the honey.
                  However, if it is with impurities, it will not light because fake honey contains moisture as one of the impurities.


Test C: Using paper or white cloth

  1. Use a soaking paper or a white cloth.
  2.  Drop a few drops of honey on the paper/cloth.      

Conclusion: If the honey is pure, it will remain solid on paper. Impure honey will be absorbed by the paper. With the cloth, try washing off the honey. If it does not stain, it is pure.

    Thank you Sujan, that's the good question. By the way,here in idea-challenge, it's not only about the context of developing the country, but its about any idea that you have, can post. Also, by identifying pure honey,people will be aware about it and people awareness means country awareness.

Got something to say?
