Test Description

Honey is a simple product, but a complex food. Plants take the energy from the sun and convert it to pollen as they work to reproduce. Pollens have protein and a wide number of compounds such as essential oils that can affect bodily systems. As bees busily go about their daily routines they mix the pollen with saliva and it becomes a concentrated food source for the bees and their offspring. Honey is rich in many nutrients such as sugars (glucose and fructose), enzymes, minerals ( magnesium, potassium, sodium chloride, iron, phosphate and sulfur), vitamins (B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, B-6, and C), several hormones and proteins of various types including the pollen grains themselves, which can contain essential oils and other phytonutrients and so honey has a wide range of multi-use from consumption to healing.

The European Union imports about half of the honey it consumes and with the suspension of the importation of Chinese animal products in recent years because of the presence of chloramphenicol, it is vital to ensure your honey product does not excess the MRLs (maximum residue limits) set on veterinary medicines, namely chloramphenicol, streptomycin, tetracyclines and suplohonamides.  This quality control material will help validate your own lab results to maintain your standards.
