Why should I use Verify Honey?
For the last 65 years, Medex has been building tradition and trust; we are striving towards transparent and honest relationships and invite you to experience this and convince yourself. All starting materials are tested for security and quality, since this control consequently ensures the safety of our final products. Our wish to deliver a transparent proof of purity of our honey to the public lead to a decision to perform additional security analyses of our final products. These analyses include risk factors relevant for specific areas or origins. Our customers can therefore check the safety and quality of each jar of honey from Medex.
Who performs the analyses?
Analyses are performed in the Eurofins Scientific laboratories in Germany, which is the world-leading company in the field of analytical testing in different sectors with 30 years of experience. Therefore, analysis sheets are in English.

- In the analysis sheet, all test parameters are listed.
- Permitted maximum residue values* for acaricides:

- The label n.d. ("non detectable") means that the parameter was not detected in the analysed honey.
