7.6.1. Pathogens and environmental contaminants found in bee products

All bee products, including honey, corbicular pollen, and bee bread, can contain pathogens, environmental contaminants, and agro-chemical residues (e.g. Bromenshenk et al., 1985; Higes et al., 2008; Chauzat et al., 2009; Mullin et al. 2010). A number of methods are available for sanitation of bee products.
