That is interesting....and begs the question, what if honey is 'adulterated' with another natural product...eg H2O....commercially the water content of honey can go up to 20%. So, any honey (let's say with a water content of 17%), can have additional water added to it and still be commercially viable...multiply that by tons (imported or otherwise), and some serious money is made !
Or reduce the water content as far as possible, ship it more cheaply and add water to take it back up to 20% when it gets where it is going?
