Why Test for HMF in honey?

The levels of naturally occurring HMF are minimal in fresh honey. Codex Alimentarius Comission (Alinorm 01/25, 200) and the European Union (Directive 100/2001) established that its concentration in the honey usually should not exceed 80 or 40 mg/kg. HMF's occurrence and accumulation in honey is variable depending on honey type.
