PUTRAJAYA: A standard is to be developed by June next year for the 'kelulut' (stingless bee) honey so that it can be branded as a Malaysian superfood, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Madius Tangau (pix) said today.
The standard was necessary in view of the fake honey rampant in the market that was detrimental to health, he said in a statement.
Madius said the standard would be developed by the Department of Standards Malaysia in collaboration with the Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute.
"It is hoped that it will be a world-class credible standard," he said.
Madius said agencies of the ministry, such as Malaysia Genome Institute-National Institutes of Biotechnology Malaysia and NanoMalaysia, were involved in collecting samples of the honey for analysis. — Bernama
