Taiwan beekeepers are calling for stricter controls over honey labelling according to a report in the China Post


The calls were made after consumers were shocked by the news report that up to four-quarters of honey products sold in Taiwan are either fake or below standards.
Four quarters! I think they meant three. The fake honey is said to blended sugars, water and chemical fragrants. Some of it had 20-640 pollens per gramme when real honey, they say, should have 2000+. Some fake honey even claimed ISO quality certification --

I was in China a few month ago. The ONLY souvenier I bought for myself was two jars of honey that say 100% on them (Acacia and Date).

I cannot even eat them. They taste really watery and weird.
