A quick guide to a food terminology.
There's no surefire way to avoid food fraud since perpetrators are clever and know how to "work the system," but here are some things smart consumers can do.
A major case of food fraud involved a company illegally transshiping honey from China to Russia, South Korea, India, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The honey was then relabeled and the country of origin was masked by filtration. The honey was then shipped to the United States of America where it entered our domestic food supply. More information on why this is an issue can be found in EMA and Honey Laundering.
