The most important part in the consumption of honey is to choose a quality honey. Basically, all honey is the original, but to determine the quality of honey, should be carried out in laboratory research.
Most people are misguided by myths that circulate in the community about how to choose honey. For example, about the ants do not like honey. This myth is false, because there is no sugar ants. Ants will not like the honey when the honey has become sour or fermented.
Here are some tips in choosing the right honey:
1. Thick, no bubbles, and it was sweet.
Viscosity of honey depends on the moisture content in honey. According to the FAO (the UN food organization), the water content in honey is a good maximum 20%. If honey is bubbly, it means the honey is left too long in an open container and undergo fermentation. And sometimes it feels a bit sour.
2. Not transparent when it spilled onto the paper Newspapers
Honey is good to have a high viscosity and water content slightly. So honey is not going through the newspaper. But the heated palm sugar also has a consistency like honey.
3. Bubble when heated
Just compare the sugar and honey is heated. Sugar solution will froth much like boiling water when heated. While honey produces air bubbles that expand and explode when heated.
4. Honey does not dry out if dried
Apply a little honey on hand, and then drying in the sun. Honey which does not mix the sugar solution will not become dry. While the honey mixture will form a crust of sugar that sticks in hand.
