How to ensure your food is pure, so your immunity is protected
Especially honey, your dadi’s favourite
If you ask any mom, they’ll say the one good thing to come out of the pandemic is that people are finally taking their health seriously and focusing on what they eat. Keenly aware of the need for pure, unadulterated food when trying to boost immunity, we study the labels on grocery products like honey, with more concentration.
Unfortunately, food adulteration is increasingly common and these sly additives can be very harmful for our health. Time and again, the FSSAI has put in efforts to control adulteration through different drives and initiatives.
The more we read about it, the more the wheels in our brains start spinning out of control. Is it possible that the golden-hued goodness we put in our tea to boost immunity isn’t up to the mark?
The key is to look for honey that is 100% pure. Saffola honey, which goes through 60+ quality checks. It has also been tested using the most advanced NMR Technology (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance), in one of the best-in-class German laboratories, ensuring that there is no adulteration including any added sugar.
Saffola Honey is exactly like how it should be – pure and natural.
