The branded honey you buy from the market in Delhi may contain antibiotics beyond permissible limit, cautions a study by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE). The study claimed to have detected high level of antibiotics in some leading brands of honey, including those manufactured by international firms, sold in Delhi warning they can have serious health effects. "The test for six antibiotics was conducted on 12 branded samples including ten Indian brands brought randomly from various markets in Delhi in July last year. Eleven were found to be contaminated with antibiotics," says the study.
