dabur honey purity certificate

Dabur Honey completely complies with FSSAI(Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) for testing Honey & is 100% pure

The recent reports seem motivated and aimed at maligning our brand. We assure our consumers that Dabur Honey is 100% Pure. It is 100% indigenous, collected naturally from Indian sources and packed with no added sugar or other adulterants. We also assure our consumers that Dabur does not import any Honey/syrup from China and our Honey is sourced entirely from Indian beekeepers.

Dabur is complying with the 22 parameters (listed below) mandated by FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) for testing Honey. In addition, Dabur Honey is also tested for the presence of antibiotics, as mandated by FSSAI. All this ensures that Dabur Honey is 100% Pure without any adulteration. The FSSAI report of our honey is attached here for your ready reference.
