Honey & Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids


Honey is one of nature’s purest products, made by bees with no additives or preservatives of any kind. Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA’s) are a naturally occurring compound found in about 3% of the world’s flowering plants. The risks associated with PA’s, which can be found in a variety of foods, are still being researched and are thought to be minimal. We are not aware of any reports of eating honey causing illness related to those PA’s. On the contrary, honey is known for its benefits as a natural sweetener. Honey is a naturally sweet addition to a balanced diet.
