    Simple answer is to always buy off the producer - not only do you get better honey but you know for sure where it came from.

    Regardless of how the bees produce it, at the end of the day it is the purest food there is.

    Fortunately I have seven pet bees weighing about two pounds each that scour the neighborhood in search of nectar to keep me supplied with that delicious sweetener.

    Actually you might have a more serious problem with bees in the not too distant future.

    now for the science bit Are bees really dying out?

    Or rather the lack of them.

    The thread title has me slightly puzzled. From what I could glean in the article it's all honey, it's just that some of it could come from anywhere. There's an implication that if you can't prove its source then it's not honey. Maybe that's a legal truth but it sounds pretty illogical if it all comes from bees.
