Beware of the Honey Bear

Did you know that a lot of the honey we eat is shipped from China?!!!!  AND that a lot of that honey is not purely honey?!

Gross!!

Local, raw honey is great for you in many ways.  You may have heard that it can help you with allergies, but you may not know why.  For honey to help you with allergies it of course needs to be local, because local honey will contain local pollen that may contribute to your allergies.

If you want to know more about this amazing super-food check out this blog.

For more about Chinese “honey”, listen to the story below that NPR posted today.
