Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab provides one-stop honey and bee products testing solutions for beekeepers, honey product manufacturers and marketers.
Honey is a sweet, viscous, golden coloured natural product that is “manufactured” by different species of honeybees, and adheres to strict food regulations to ensure its safety and authenticity. With people's awareness of the health care function of honey, people's demand for honey is also growing. But in the case of imperfect regulatory mechanisms, adulterated and fake honey are flooding the consumer market. Honey is included in the list of products with the highest risk of food fraud drawn up by members of the European Parliament and published in 8 October 2013. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) prohibits the use of certain antibiotics in food production.
