Characterization of home-produced phacelia honey



Characterization of home-produced phacelia honey



Deutsches Bienen Journal 3(10): 16-21



In recent years, good honey crops have been obtained from the increasing areas of Phacelia tanacetifolia being grown for seed in Germany. Results are reported for 35 phacelia honeys studied (1989-1994), including average values for: electrical conductivity, 0.14-0.25 mS/cm; invertase, 9.5-18.5 units; glucose oxidase, 2.6-9.0 micro g H2O2 g-1min-1; proline, 203-485 ppm; water, 15.7-16.7%; fructose:glucose ratio, 0.99-1.17; sucrose, 0.52-3.41%.
