Abstract

Honey samples collected from Southern Marmara region in Turkey were analyzed for the presence of oxytetracycline and sulphonamides (sulfadiazine, sulfathiazole, sulfamerazine, sulfadimethoxine) residues. A total of 50 samples composed from multi-flavour, chestnut, pine and linden honeys that were collected from hives at different locations in the region were monitored by using LC-MS system. Tested residues were not detected in any of the tested hives indicating that either their concentrations were lower for being detected by the used system or samples were free from residues.
