The aim of this work was to analyze physicochemical quality parameters of commercial honeys. Twenty six honey samples were bought in stores of retail chains. The samples included 15 multifloral honeys, 7 lime honeys and 4 acacia honeys. The following parameters were determined: water content, insoluble solids content, specific conductivity, free acidity, glucose, fructose and sucrose contents, diastase number and 5-hydroxymethylfurfural content. It was found that the analyzed honeys were characterized by increased insoluble solids content and decreased diastase number, whereas values of the other parameters complied with the relevant legal requirements.
