Webinar - 2021

Honey, a precious food. How Essential is it to ensure Honey Authenticity?

We are pleased to announce our educational webinar, which outlines the approach to honey authentication, showing how companies and governmental agencies around the world employ NMR technology for brand, business and consumer protection.

Webinar Overview

As a high-value food product, honey is particularly vulnerable to economically motivated adulteration (EMA). Such adulteration impacts the entire value chain, not only influencing consumer trust but potentially damaging the reputation of honey producers or resellers. Adulteration is partly also responsible for the fall in raw honey prices over the last decade, putting the livelihood of beekeepers at risk, while simultaneously the honey prices charged to final consumers have been increasing due to growing demand. Using a sophisticated, hands-off analytical method that is able to detect new modes of adulteration is vital to protecting the authenticity, integrity, and economic viability of honey.
