HONEY QUALITY IN PIEDMONT REGION
AbstractIn september-october 2008 Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale del Piemonte Liguria e Valle d'Aosta – Asti section and Centro Apistico Regionale, analyzed the quality aspects of 111 samples of honey coming from Piedmont region. The aim of this study was to evaluate the piedmontese honey quality by checking the content of humidity and HMF on seleced samples. The humidity content was between 5 g/100g and 20,2 g/100g, while the HMF amount was between 0,19 mg/kg and 9,71 mg/kg. Only 1 sample was up to 18% on humidity, but no sample was above law limits concerning HMF, this shows the good quality of piedmontese honey.
