New Honey Tests Launched
Following industry feedback, Analytica has recently launched three new honey tests that are relevant for meeting some international market requirements as well as ensuring the quality of honey prior to sale or export:
- Diastase: used to indicate the age and exposure of honey to heat. Listed in Codex Standard for Honey.
- Amitraz: a miticide residue receiving increasing attention in recent years. International MRL of 0.2mg/kg
- American Foulbrood (AFB): this test can be used for meeting market requirements such as in China. Can also be used to monitor hive health.
