Chemical laboratory analysis of honey
provides the following main categories of chemical analysis:
Glucose and fructose analysis:
determining these sugars is very important as it certifies both the type of honey (honeydew) and the non-adulteration of it.
Saccharose (sucrose) concentration measurement:
depending on the type of honey, there are permissible limits of glucose, fructose and sucrose in honey.
the value of electrical conductivity separates honeydew honey from flower honey.
there are permissible limits of moisture in honey that if exceeded, fermentation may cause the honey to sour or crystallize more quickly.
Chemical determination of Hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) and diastatic activity:
determining the diastatic activity and HMF are decisive criteria for the quality of honey because they indicate:
Aging of honey
Confectionary or industrial honey
Gyroscopic analysis of honey
