Consumer Voice - - Comparativ­e Test -

The na­tional stan­dards have set no re­quire­ment for an­tibi­otics. In 2010, Cen­tre for Science and En­vi­ron­ment (CSE) found an­tibi­otics in their study of honey. In this con­text, we de­cided to ver­ify the pres­ence of an­tibi­otics in honey and con­ducted tests to de­ter­mine the pres­ence of six an­tibi­otics – namely oxyte­tra­cy­cline, chlo­ram­pheni­col, ampi­cillin, en­rofloxacin, ciprofloxa­cin and ery­thromycin. None of th­ese six an­tibi­otics was de­tected in any of the brands.
