Honey

Creative Diagnostics - Food & Feed Analysis

Honey

Honey is a sweet food made by honeybees from the nectar of flowers and stored in honeycombs. It is a food that contains all the substances needed for life, including enzymes, vitamins, minerals and water. It also contains pinocembrin, an antioxidant associated with improved brain function. As a supersaturated sugar solution, honey is mainly composed of fructose and glucose, water and minerals, vitamins, free amino acids, enzymes and polyphenols.In addition to pure honey, there are many honey-derived products such as royal jelly, propolis, mead and sauces (e.g. honey barbecue and honey mustard).

Beyond its wonderful taste, honey and its products have many benefits. It helps build the immune system, improve sleep quality, enhance brain function, and even fight cancer.

Our extensive range of products will help you control the quality of honey to meet customer needs and FDA or EFSA requirements.

Antibiotics

Antibiotics for honey and other bee products, such as streptomycin, sulfonamides and chloramphenicol, are commonly used in veterinary settings. The extensive use of antibiotics leads to the accumulation of antibiotic residues in honey, which leads to a decline in the quality of honey and difficulty in sales. Monitoring antibiotic residues in honey, wax and bees can avoid product recalls and commercial losses. Read more

Pesticides

Honey may be contaminated with pesticides in the environment and in the breeding process. For example, fungicides used to control fruit trees and rape pests, including vinclozolin, iprodione, methyl thiophanate, captan, and difenoconazole may contaminate honey. When using insecticides on pollen, this may have a direct impact on the health of the bees and eventually lead to contamination of the honey products with pesticides. Read more

Food pathogens

The presence of microorganisms in honey can affect quality and safety. Because of the antibacterial properties of honey, most bacteria and other microorganisms cannot grow or reproduce in honey. However, spore forming microorganisms can survive in honey at low temperatures, such as Bacillus cereus, Clostridium perfringens, and Clostridium botulinum spores. For consumers’ health, manufacturers would test their products before marketing. Read more
