APPLICATION NOTE: Detection of Honey Adulteration Using FT-NIR Spectroscopy

Is your honey pure or has it been “sweetened”?

Adding corn syrup to honey allows dishonest suppliers to maintain the sweet taste without a noticeable difference in the final product. Without testing, it is hard to tell which honeys are adulterated and which are not. Learn how Fourier Transform Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-NIR) provides a quick, high quality testing method that allows for the detection of adulterants in honey.

What you will learn:
  • Understand how the Adulterant Screen software can instantly identify the presence of an adulterant and estimate its concentration
  • Realise there is no need for lengthy calibrations for accurate results
  • See how a simple user interface provides routine users with clear pass/fail results in seconds
