Recall of Manuka Honey due to non-approved additives found

Another case of health product recall in Singapore. 

SINGAPORE: The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) on Friday (Feb 26) announced a recall of Evergreen manuka honey products from New Zealand.
AVA noted that New Zealand's Ministry of Primary Industries has posted an advisory that Evergreen Life Limited is recalling the products. There is information to suggest that non-approved substances dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and methylglyoxal (MG) may have been used during the processing of the honey, AVA said.

  • As a wise consumer, we need to always be aware of the food safety. 

  • On top of non-approved additives found in honey, do you know that traces of antibiotics could be found in honey too? This is due to the misuse of antibiotics from the bee producers who would like to prevent bees from falling sick. 

  • Overuse of antibiotics can cause superbug in our body.

That's the goal of Nutritional Immunology that always equip the consumers in the market with right knowledge so we can all make a more informed choice in maintaining our good health. 

If you need any advice related to the health products that you are using now, kindly contact me via message or email. Thank you.=)
