Abstract:
Investigations on “Physicochemical properties of apiary honey of Odisha” was carried out to study the chemical properties of honey of Apis cerana indica & Apis mellifera. The honey samples collected from 18 different locations of Odisha including hive honey of the All India Coordinated Research Project on Honeybees and Pollinators and All India Coordinated Research Project on Cashew during July 2019 to January 2020. Among the 18 samples analysed, 11samples were of A. c. indica and 7 samples were of A. mellifera. The chemical properties viz., reducing sugar (%), sucrose (%) and ash content (%)of the collected apiary honey samples varied from 62.81 to 74.96, 2.30 to 3.88 and 0.01 to 0.44 respectively. Amongst the parameters studied, the reducing sugar property satisfy the standards of ISI specification of Indian honey under A grade, special grade and standard grade.
