The Truth About Honey

Honey has been referred to as the elixir of the gods. It was the first sweetener used by humans and has always been considered valuable, not only as a sweetener but also as a medicinal remedy. Honey has been found in ancient Egyptian pyramids, preserved by its natural antibiotic and preservative properties.

The global honey market is expected to reach 2,768.7 kilotons by the end of 2023 at a compound annual growth rate of 7.22%. (1) The Asia Pacific region is projected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period (2017-2023) due to the rise in production volume and increasing consumption of honey.


Honey-Profiling offers a fast screening for atypical samples. This non-targeted analysis consists of comparing the tested sample with all reference samples from the same floral source, in order to check for compliance. This quickly allows detection of atypical profiles which can then be investigated further. This feature has the potential to detect new methods of fraud as they are implemented and is therefore a valuable tool for regulatory bodies.
