New Method for Determining Hydrogen Peroxide Potential of Honey

Application of Crude Extract of Kohlrabi (Brassica oleracea gongylodes) as a Rich Source of Peroxidase in the Spectrofluorometric Determination of Hydrogen Peroxide in Honey Samples
Anal Sci, 2006 Sep;22(9):1201-6

Crude extract of kohlrabi (Brassica oleracea gongylodes) was prepared by a simple procedure and its enzymatic activity and total protein concentration were determined. It was found that this crude extract is a rich source of peroxidase (POx) and has high specific activity…

The proposed method was successfully applied to the determination of hydrogen peroxide in honey. The concentration-time profile of H(2)O(2) produced upon dilution of honey was studied and H(2)O(2) contents of some different honeys from various areas of Iran were determined.
