Abstract:

The essential components of honey are sugar and water. In addition to carbohydrates, honey contains several vitamins, particularly the B complex and vitamin C, as well as many minerals, including calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Since ancient times, honey has been used for its therapeutic, dietary, and healing benefits. Due to its distinctive qualities, which are attributable to the effect of the many groups of compounds it contains, natural honey is one of the most popular products. Honey is used for nutritional, medicinal, and industrial purposes and it is an important commodity in the international market, serving as foreign exchange earner for many countries. The precise chemical composition and physical properties of natural honeys differ according to the plant species on which the bees forage. Differences in climatic conditions and vegetation are also important factors that can affect the various properties of Honey. This review covers the composition, physiochemical properties, and the most important uses of natural Honey in human diseases.
Objectives: 1) To Evaluate the Physicochemical characteristics (pH, Electrical conductivity) 2) To determine the mineral composition (Carbohydrates, Proteins & Vitamins). 3) To estimate the metal composition (Na, K, Fe, Ca & Zn). 4. To identify phytochemical components.
