One of the objectives of work page three within the European Research Project ‘TRACE” was to identify PCR markers for the recognition of plant species affiliated to honey. Within the project “Miel de Corse”, a protected designation of origin (PDO) honey and “Miel de Galicia”, a protected geographical indication (PGI) honey. In addition, both German and English honeys were also analysed. Alongside the development of plant species specific real-time PCR systems, a method has now been established which allows the identification of DNA derived from plant species in general.
