(NBC) - The FDA will soon add honey to the list of foods that require more strict labeling.
Companies will have to label any honey that is not pure, with a "blend of sugar and honey" or a "blend of honey and corn syrup," depending on the ingredients.
This is because even though sugar makes up the majority of honey, raw honey offers more vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties than sugary substitutes.
Until the regulations are finalized, "blended" honey will still have the old labels. So if you want the real thing, stick with organic or raw honey that has not been processed.
