STEP 2
WATER TEST
• Get a glass cup of water
• pour in one spoon of honey into the glass of water
• If the honey dissolves in the and spreads around the water, then its Fake.
• A pure honey will settle right at the bottom of the water, without spreading around.
STEP 3

FLAMMABLE TEST
Do you know that a pure natural honey is flammable in nature?

Some of you aren’t aware.
• Dip a dry match stick in a honey.
• strike the match stick against the match packet as if you want to light it.
• If it lights with ease its Original, and it will keep burning around the honey until the honey is dried off

• If it dosnt light then its Fake, as Diluted honey tends to contain moisture.
