‘Significant Correlations’ Between Honey Antioxidant Activity and Phenolic Content

Evaluation of Antioxidant Activity, Phenolic, Mineral Contents and Some Physicochemical Properties of Several Pine Honeys Collected from Western Anatolia
Int J Food Sci Nutr, 2008 Oct 23:1-13

In this study, the qualities of 15 red pine honey samples from different parts of the Muğla province in Turkey were evaluated…

Pine honey samples also were analyzed for total phenolic contents and antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activities were evaluated based on the ability of the pine honey extracts to scavenge 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl.

Significant correlations were obtained between the antioxidant activity and phenolic content
