How to Test Honey

I m getting more and more into food these days huh..ehhehehe.

Someone from the fb page informed me how to test real honey or pure honey with no added sugar or syrup.

Scoop some honey and leave it out. Wait.  Wait for ants to come. If a lot of ants, means its NOT Pure honey. If no ants or if ant tried to come and drown itself..its GOOD honey.

Hence, I quickly tried out this 1kg honey bought from my trip at rm100. Thank God I got this honey for free. If  its not genuine, I will give this away. Serious. I am on a health journey and I dont want to laden my body will more artificial or sweet stuff.

Got from my recent Phuket trip

I spoon-ed out honey on a plastic and left it overnight. 
I got very worried because I am afraid my whole kitchen to be infested by ants. 

As soon as I got up, I quickly went to see. Phew. Thank God.
All alright. 

So go try and let me know your findings :)


  1. I suspect my honey is not very pure although it says there pure honey. My house got infested with ants recently and I just got rid of them successfully. Cannot risk attracting them back again haha :p

  2. I drank this honey too. Mum bought from Thailand too a few years back during holiday. I really love the taste of this honey. Now, I'm missing it......

  3. Wow, seriously? This is a great tip Rachel!

  4. I read about this too. But I dont know why there were still 1 or 2 ants that went inside our pure Manuka honey bought fr NZ. That honey is very expensive one and UMF 10+ wor. Why I wonder? Perhaps they added sugar in it?
