EC Directive 2001/110 clearly specifies the physicochemical quality criteria of honey and the major criteria of interest are moisture content, electrical conductivity, ash content, reducing and non-reducing sugars, free acidity, diastase activity and hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) content.
As with HMF, diastase activity can be used as indicative of aging, temperature abuse and good quality of the honeys [11].
Ebraheim and coworkers (11) showed that all tibiofibular diastases of 2 or 3 mm created in a cadaveric model could be seen on CT, while plain radiographs missed all of the 2 mm diastases and half of the 3 mm diastases, showing that CT is much more sensitive for the detection of minor syndesmotic injuries.
The impressive sutural diastases were sequelae of the growing dural metastases that exerted progressively increasing pressure at the suture line.
