Development of high-speed processing quick-test for the evaluation of honey quality

Objective

The quality of honey from non-European countries, e.g. from china, is often insufficient. Currently, scientific experts determine the quality of honey with complicated methods in sate-of-the art laboratories. Hence, quality control of honey is not totally under the control of sees dealing with honey. It is the main intention of the proposed project to develop simple quick-tests for the rapid determination of quality parameters in honey. This could include the quick determining of ingredients of honey that could be used as quality indicators and as suitable targets for the development of quick-tests. Research is needed in order to simplify the currently available laboratory procedures. Simplification should lead to the development of strips, simple proof-solutions etc., usable as quick-tests. The development of quick-tests would be of great advantage for the sees involved in the honey business since they are no longer totally dependent on the work of scientific experts but they will be able to check quickly quality parameters of honey their self. This could be performed also onsite, i.e. in the honey producing countries (china, Argentina, etc.)
