HEAVY METALS IN HONEY FROM PIEDMONT (ITALY)
AbstractHoney may be viewed as an environmental marker and can be an helpful tool to assess heavy metals contamination. In 2007-2009 we conducted a first screening on honey samples from Piedmont Region to evaluate Cadmium, Chromium and Lead content. Cd and Cr levels resulted lower than LOQ, while Pb levels, even if not concerning, are to keep under control.
