Abstract: Several major brands are taking a stance against honey fraud and adulteration by sourcing 100 percent of the honey used in their products from True Source Honey™ certified suppliers. Honey Stinger, Droga Chocolates and Unilever's Hellmann's are the first brands to earn the Made With True Source Honey™ certification from NSF International. Makers of food, personal care and over-the-counter products can show their commitment to responsible honey sourcing by selecting honey suppliers that have earned independent certification to the True Source Honey protocol. This voluntary, third-party testing and certification program traces honey all the way back to the hive so wholesale buyers and consumers can be confident about the origin and authenticity of honey as well as its compliance with U.S. and international trade laws."Honey is easily adulterated and consumers are understandably concerned," said Steve Taormina, Business Unit Manager for NSF International's Consumer Values Verified Program.
