Abstract

In this study, it is aimed to determine some physicochemical properties and pollen types of honey samples collected from different regions. Pollen profile, moisture content, ash, electrical conductivity, frutose/glucose, HMF and proline were the parameters analysed in each honey sample. According to the results obtained, all honey samples from different geographic origins were found to be consistent, in terms of the parameters analyzed, with the values given in the Turkish Food Codex Honey Communiqué.  It was found that only one honey sample did not comply with the values given in the codex in terms of F/G ratio. According to the results of the melissopalinological analysis, three honey samples were found to be unifloral (two chestnut and one tragacanth) and the others were found to be polyfloral honey. The results obtained indicate that physicochemical properties of the honey samples produced at different points in Turkey differ greatly in accordance with the diversity of the flora of the region
