Presentation Abstract

Honey has been used as both a food, sugar substitute, and flavor enhancer since the dawn of time. The uses for honey are extremely varied and include, food and medicine. Honey is also an agricultural product and bees have to potential to come into contact with a variety of industrial compounds originating in the pollen sources or in the protection of hive. In this project, the presence of three agricultural products (Coumaphos, Amitraz, and 2,4-dimethylanaline) was investigated in commercially available wild flower honey. Headspace SPME coupled with GC-MS was used to for the analysis and quantification was performed using standard addition in conjunction with an internal standard.
