大家認識“有機”蜂蜜嗎? Do You Know "Organic" Honey?


市面上有機食品琳琅滿目,似乎有機認證已經不是新鮮話題。追求高質素及健康的消費者在選購食品時,有機認證亦成為選擇指標。

但是,大家有無留意到市面上售賣嘅蜂蜜,好似很難找到有機認證的。何解?

蜂蜜的有機認證準則跟一般食品大有不同,因為人類控制不了蜜蜂的飛行活動行為。

一般在農場飼養的牲畜,人類可控制其活動範圍。而身形細小的小蜜蜂,不受人類操控之餘,更有能力飛到距離其蜂巢以外三公里的地方採蜜。要達到有機認證的要求,圍繞蜂巢三公里內的植物必須無污染、無使用農藥、化學物,以確保蜜源未受農藥、化學物、重金屬等物質污染。

隨著城市發展,許多盛產蜂蜜的地方均受到不同程度的污染,可以想像到乎合有機認證的蜂蜜確實很難找到呢!

In recent years, there are plenty of organic foods in the market. "Organic" is no longer a new topic. Organic certification becomes the selection key to the consumers who look for high quality health food.

However, do you notice that it is quite difficult to find honey products certified as organic in the market? Why?

International organic standards for honey products are much demanding than normal food items. It is simply because people cannot control the activities of honey bees.

In general, human can control the activities of livestocks within a farm. But human cannot control the activities of honey bees because they can travel to a distance up to 3km from honeycomb for nectar collecting. To meet the international organic standards, the plant flowers within 3km area from honeycomb shall be free of pesticides, chemicals, heavy metals and other substances. This makes sure honey not polluted by such substances.

With continuous urban development, plant flowers around most honey farms have been polluted in different extent. It is quite difficult for a honey product certified as organic
