Antibiotics and other drugs in agricultural foods is a recurrent problem that can cause serious harm or death to the allergic
or sensitive consumer. In recent years, various sources of honey have been shown to be contaminated with residues of
antibiotics and sulfonamides. These contaminants may occur after direct treatment of bacterial diseases of honey bees,
such as American or European foulbrood and nosemosis. To address this issue, several countries have regulated use of
sulfonamides and require routine testing of honey for their presence. Honey is a complex matrix consisting of mostly carbohydrates and water. In contrast to less viscous samples, for example milk, in order to utilize SPE with a viscous matrix like honey, it is necessary to take additional steps including sonication and acidification prior to SPE. Herein, we describe a method to extract and analyze sulfa drugs in honey using cation exchange SPE and LC-MS-MS analysis.
