Estimation of antibacterial activity of some Indian honeys


, : Estimation of antibacterial activity of some Indian honeys. Indian Bee Journal 53(1-4): 80-90

The max. water contents of the 14 honeys from 4 bee species were: Apis cerana (8 samples), 25.5% in rubber honey; A. dorsata (2 samples), 24.0%; A. florea (2 samples), 23.5%; Trigona iridipennis (2 samples), 22.8%. Inhibine numbers varying from 0 to 5 were given to the honeys, depending on their inhibition of Staphylococcus aureus in standard tests. The content of hydrogen peroxide varied from 2 to 330 micro g/g (both A. cerana honeys).
