-The Thumb test:

Apply a small amount of honey on your thumb, check if it is spilling like any other liquid, if it does then your honey is not authentic. Honey is supposed to be thick and it doesn't drip.

-Water Test:

In a glass of water, put a spoon of honey, if your honey is dissolving in water then it's fake. Pure honey has a thick texture that will settle at the bottom of a cup or a glass.

-Vinegar Test:

Mix a few drops of honey into vinegar water, if the mixture starts to foam, then your honey is fake.

-The Heat Test:

Honey remains unburned. To try the heat test, dip a matchstick in honey and light it. If it burns, then your honey is adulterated.

You can, in fact, spot the difference with the naked eye too. Pure honey has a distinct sweet aroma to it, and raw honey when consumed leaves a tingling feeling in your throat.
