HEALTH RISK

Check the safety of your honey for consumption!

When beehives are installed in highly anthropized environments (urban, industrial or agricultural environment), the question of the harmlessness of the honey produced is regularly raised. Studies indicate that, generally, honeys are very little contaminated with pollutants collected from the environment by bees. In fact, bees are mainly contaminated by adsorption and at the margin by ingestion.

However, if you wish to sell your honey or distribute it (to your employees, customers or residents for example), it is better to confirm beforehand that it can be consumed without risk to human health.

From a sample of honey, we suggest you analyze the specific pollutants that it may contain due to the environment of the hives. The results make it possible to calculate the levels of pollutants ingested by the consumption of honey, in addition to the average exposure by total food. These data are then compared to the Toxicological Reference Values to verify the harmlessness of honey for adults and children.
