Honey by Medex is of verified quality – check for yourselves!

Medex guarantees the unconditional safety, integrity and quality of each bottled honey, regardless of the origin or brand. The quality of honey cannot be assessed with the naked eye or using other “folk” methods – the only correct and verifiable assessment is carried out in labs. Honey containing non- authorised substance residues or even counterfeits are often present on the market. This is why we have to be careful which honey we choose, where we buy it and who guarantees its quality.

Medex takes care of its safety and quality controls by applying various methods in cooperation with recognised global accredited laboratories. By carrying out analyses we guarantee the quality and safety of each spoonful of Medex honey.

The best that bees give us

“Medex is the only company providing the “Check your honey” service. We want to establish an honest relationship with our customers, based on trust. It is important that as our customers you are aware that Medex honey is verified, safe and quality honey.”


Aleša Mižigoj, CEO


Why is it important to verify the quality of honey?

Honey consists of around 200 different substances determining its taste, scent, aroma and colour. The most nutritious parts of plants are transferred into honey, which are then processed and given its distinct character by bees. What the honey collected from the beehive by beekeepers will be like depends on the origin of the nectar, honey maturity, weather conditions and on the manner and conditions of honey production.

Honey is exposed to 3 key risk factors:


residues of chemical/synthetic agents used to eradicate varroa or for treatment


pesticides brought from the environment into the beehive by bees


heavy metals from an industry-heavy environment

How are analyses used to verify honey?

Medex verifies honey safety as well as quality. Every barrel of honey is sampled and numerous analyses are carried out.

Quality parameters

When using quality parameters we check electrical conductivity, water content, pollen analysis, sugar content, sensory properties, HMF (hydroxymethylfurfural, which shows us if honey was appropriately handled) content in pH, honey origin, diastase activity, and the content of enzymes. Enzymes are among the most important compounds in honey. They may be transferred from bees, nectar, honeydew or bee pollen. The most important enzymes in honey are diastase, invertase and glucose oxidase. Honey overheating or age can be deduced from enzyme content.

Safety parameters

  • With safety parameters we verify the residue value of pesticides, acaricides, antibiotics, heavy metals and residues of phyto-pharmaceutical substances. The highest risk for the safety of honey are acaricides, which are used by beekeepers to eradicate varroa, parasitic mites. The biggest polluter is the acaricide coumaphos, which accumulates in wax and which bees uncontrollably spread all over the beehive. If it is established that the concentration of allowed substances in honey was exceeded according to the provisions of the Regulation of the EU Commission, the honey is labelled as inadequate. Medex has expanded the control to all 26 acaricides, which have a defined maximum detection limit or which are prohibited. In this manner we can establish with certainty how bees, the honey of which we are verifying, were treated.
