By ICP-OES investigations was determined that the element content of Hungarian honey samples is similar to the international data. In case of Hungarian honey types the rank order of the element content is following: Sr < Cu << Al < Zn < Fe < B << Na < Mg < P < S < Ca << K. According to the macro elements of the investigated honey types can be stated that the measured lowest values are in acacia and asclepias honeys and highest values are in fruit and linden honey samples. In case of micro elements we received similar results. The general conclusion is that the element content of the investigated Hungarian honey is the lowest in acacia and linden honeys and the highest element concentration is in linden and fruit honeys.
