Frequently Asked Questions
Glyphosate is a commonly used herbicide worldwide. Consequently, it often occurs in food as a residue, and in the environment as contaminant. Its presence in honey is likely caused by the use of glyphosate in areas that bees forage in.
Many countries have enforced maximum residue levels (MRL) due to concerns about its harm to humans and the environment (including bees). Therefore, monitoring the concentration of glyphosate, its metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA), as well as glufosinate (another herbicide that is often included with glyphosate) in honey is important.
This test is currently outsourced. Following solvent extraction and FMOC derivatisation, the honey sample is analysed for glyphosate residue using Liquid Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).
Up to 20 working days on receipt of sample.
