What should I look for when buying honey?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Recent studies show that lots of honey on the market is ultra-filtered, meaning all of the pollen is taken out. You want pollen in your honey because it is a great source of antioxidants.

Make sure to get all the healing benefits of honey:
  • The ingredients list should read only honey (no sugar syrup, corn syrup, or rice syrup).
  • Organic honey is the safest bet to ensure you’re getting pure honey with pollen.
  • Buy honey at natural food stores and local farmers markets because it comes straight from the hive.
