Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the FoodManufacturing.com on Sept 3, 2015.

"The non-profit True Source Honey CertificationTM Program (www.TrueSourceHoney.com), whose mission it is to protect consumers, retailers and manufacturers from illegally sourced honey, has issued an alert concerning honey labeled as coming from Thailand or Taiwan. Honey importers, retailers and manufacturers are advised to proceed carefully and consider additional safeguards if they are buying low-priced honey labeled as produced in Thailand or Taiwan, such as ensuring that honey imports are certified by an independent third party." Honey from China is transshipped to other countries to avoud anti-dumping duties. " The quality and purity of this honey is also suspect since it is not sold according to regular protocols. For example, some exported Chinese honey has been found to be adulterated with banned antibiotics." The suspicion is due to that fact that now the US is importing much larger quantities of honey from these countris at the same time as they are importing much larger quantities of honey from China.
