    On looking through the above link to the research it appears their data collection and control procedures were very objective. I was surprised at the much greater honey uptake of Formic acid compared to oxalic. There does not seem to be any sensational claims of the acid uptakes to be any safety hazard but formic acid levels can come within the range of taste detectable in some less common conditions.

    If both formic and oxalic acids were not such common components of honey, the specter of their uptake would be considered outrageous.

    When I was using OAV I never saw any damage unless I purposefully did an overdose. The brood, with a normal dose, was fine.
