Abstract

The present study was undertaken to determine the physicochemical and palynological characteristics of 18 honey samples from three different areas in West Azerbaijan, Iran. Sample preparation for palynological and physico-chemical analyses was carried out at the University of Gottingen and QSI (Bremen), Germany, respectively. Honey samples were compared in terms of electrical conductivity, proline, HMF, diastase activity and major sugar composition. No significant differences in physico-chemical parameters were seen in the samples. Pollen percentage abundances of the majority of the samples were comparable with the botanical origin of their pollen content. Based on a descriptive statistics, more than half of the required pollen for honey production were collected by bees merely from two genera, i.e. Astragalus and Plantago, in all three sampling areas. The results of cluster analysis of the pollen spectra of the honey samples showed that all but one honey sample from Marmishou could be separated based on their pollen content. Keywords: Honey, Melissopalynology, Physico-chemical parameters, Pollen, , Urmia.
