TIn current study, hydroxy methyl furfural (HMF), diastas, moisture, acidity, ash, pH and electric conductivity (EC) of collected honey samples were determined. The highest ash content was found in pine honey (0.73 %). pH values of honey samples ranged from 3.76 (cotton) to 4.78 (pine honey). Also, acidity values of honeys were found between 22.79 meq/ kg (sunflower) and 44.25 meq/ kg ( cotton ). In all samples, hydroxy methyl furfural values were found between 2.32 mg/ kg (cotton) and 4.03 mg/ kg (sunflower). In addition, diastatic activities of honey samples were found between 27.80 (sunflower ) and 35.46 (pine honey). EC values of floral honey types changed between 0.42 mS/ cm (floral honey ) and 0.85 mS/ cm ( cotton honey ). While fructos contents of honey change between 24.64 % (pine honey) and 48.13% (cotton), glucose contents of samples varied from 22.03% (pine honey) to 36.74% (sunflower).
