- Water Test: Fill a glass with water. Then, add one tablespoon of honey into the glass. Adulterated or artificial honey will dissolve in water and you will see it around the glass. Pure honey on the other hand will settle right at the bottom of your glass
- Flame Test: Normally, pure honey is flammable. Here is a test to do that: Take a dry matchstick, dip its tip right into the honey. Then, Strike the stick on the matchbox as if to light it. If the honey is pure, the matchstick will light with ease. The flame will also keep burning off the honey
- Vinegar Test: Another common method to tell the difference is by vinegar test. To do this: add some water and 2-3 drops of vinegar essence into the honey and mix well. If the solution becomes foamy, that is definitely adulterated honey.
