1. Bought another brand of Tualang Honey from Amazon which looks very watery. Is it fake?

2. Many honey products claim to be "Wild Honey". How should "Wild" be defined?
For a real "Wild Honey", the beehive must be naturally formed and does not involve the use of artificial beehives. Honey must be ripened naturally, and the whole process does not involve any human factors that interfere with the quality of honey. With the environmental and industrial development, it is difficult to find authentic "Wild Honey" nowadays, and only traces of wild bees can be found in primitive equatorial rainforest or on cliffs of plateau.
Many honey products in the market are claimed to be "Wild Honey", which are in fact the honey farmers put artificial beehives in the wild area. These honeys are actually farmed honey, and the honey ripening process is often affected by different degrees of human factors, such as artificial sugar feeding, antibiotic doping and pesticide pollution.
3. Why choose Raw Honey?
Raw Honey refers to the honey subject to natural filtration after being harvested. Its natural essences and pollen grains are 100% retained, contributing much higher therapeutic value than processed honey.

Ultra-filtration removes pollen grains causing the processed honey losing efficacy. Nutritional value of processed honey is actually equivalent to that of syrup.
