A new web site is now online (http://www.molangoldstandard.co.nz/) which contains a large amount of educational information on the various health-promoting bioactivities of honey. The web site gives full details of all of the published journal articles and postgraduate theses from the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato, and gives links which allow free access to many of these publications.
The site also gives an outline of research work currently being done on honey at the University of Waikato. This new information resource for global consumers, researchers and members of the honey industry is part of the new ‘Molan Gold Standard’ certification system for bioactivities in honey. The site explains how the new certification system can be used by companies marketing honeys for their bioactivities to global consumers.
