One in five samples of local honey sourced along the eastern seaboard of Australia, including boutique brands, has been found to be fake, deepening the global scandal over the impurity of honey, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.

“The only way to guarantee that you are getting real bona fide honey is to buy it from a local producer where you can see it coming out of the hive or you produce your own honey yourself. That’s really the only deadset guarantee at this moment in time,” said Professor Mark Taylor from the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Macquarie University.
