ABSTRACT
The present study aimed to characterize twenty four honeys available in the Slovakapiarist inrespect to their floral origins (rape, lime, honeydew honey), physicochemical and microbial parameters. Moisture content, ash, acidity and electrical conductivity were the parameters analyzed in each honey sample. Total bacteria count and coliform bacteria were the microbial contaminants of interest studied. Concerning the physicochemical parameters, all honey samples were found to meet European Legislation (EC Directive 2001/110) for all parameters. Microbiologically,the commercial quality was considered good and all samples showed to be negative in respect to safetyparameters.
