Innovating to predict and prevent honey crystallisation

What it is: Crystek, developed by Intertek, provides services to evaluate and estimate a honey sample’s tendency to crystallise, as well as to advise on and improve the quality of the honey and its production.

Customer benefit: Honey crystallisation is a natural phenomenon where honey turns from liquid to a semi-solid state. The start of this natural process depends on the honey’s characteristics and the production process. Intertek has developed a physical instrument that can be used to understand which part – characteristics or production – has the biggest impact on crystallisation, with experts available to support on-site or remotely.

Intertek is one of the world-leading experts in the analysis of honey and hive products. The combination of Crystek and our unique expertise allows us to help manufacturers develop the best process to prevent crystallisation from taking place.
