Abstract

Diastase and glucose-oxidase activity was determined in 8 samples of Hungarian milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) honey and in 10 samples of Hungarian acacia (Robinia pseudoacacia) honey. The aim of the study was to compare diastase and glucose-oxidase activity of milkweed and acacia honey. Mean value for diastase was 16.28 diastase number (DN) (±2.53) in acacia honey and 24.48 DN (±5.07) in milkweed honey. Mean value for glucose-oxidase was 3.67 nmol unit g-1 (±3.31) in acacia honey and 8.24 (±4.21) in milkweed honey. The differences both in diastase and glucose-oxidase activities of the two honey types were statistically significant.
