Honey analyse

Authenticity of honey

Pollen analysis of honey allows to determine the botanical and geographical origin of honey and thus to examine whether it is indeed a monofloral honey, if so labeled, and whether the origin stated on the label is correct. The adulteration of honey by the addition of sugars or the feeding of bees during gestation can be verified with specialized techniques such as EA-IRMS (AOAC method), EA/LC-IRMS and the newer, more sensitive and high performance detection methods 1H NMR Profiling and LC-HRMS.
