Not only these three brands but 10 out of 13 brands fail in purity test. But the companies have denied their claims.

In a research it is found the brands selling their honey which is not completely pure, they sell adulterated honey with modified sugar according to CSE.

All the big brands failed in their purity test but these brands describe these claims as baseless and useless. Companies are assuring that they are selling 100% pure products.
And it is also said that all claims are false and their products are 100% pure and natural.

The companies said that they are following the quality protocol under FSSAI.

Even US Foof department and administration has said that the company (Patanjali) uses two different labels and packaging in both countries.

CSE in its investigation found that these companies are mixed sugar syrup procured from rice, maize, beet, sugarcane. Even almost all Indian brands are selling adulterated honey.

CSE raised a Red Flag

According to CSE, food is more unethical and these products are harming our health. Overuse of sugar can harm our bodies and make it worse. We spend more money just because of buying good and healthy products for our family, but these adulterated companies can also harm you and your family’s health.

CSE is claiming on Government of India

According to CSE, the Indian government is already aware of adulteration, but they are not showing interest in digging Into it. CSE filed RTI against these companies, even stating that they had moved to another division. But they don’t really care and the FSSAI already knows what’s going on.

According to CSE, FSSAI should not allow these products to be marketed. The company lends 0.95–1.5% by mass glucose-fructose ratio but these companies are not clear anything on the label.
