I don't purchase a lot of processed foods. But, when I do, I always look at the ingredients. I pay particularly close attention to the sweeteners included. I try to avoid high fructose corn syrup. One sweetener that I've always thought was safe is honey. But, then I read this article... see article HERE.
It was interesting. The article is about an enormous fraud perpetrated by a honey importer. What the article made me realize is that companies could "doctor" honey with chemicals and such. Honey isn't as simple an ingredient as I thought.
The article also made me think twice about being willing to pay a higher price for local honey. Honey that comes from folks I know and trust. I'm definitely going to be working it into our food budget.
