Honey samples that are available commercially, differ in quality on acount of various factors like geographical, seasonal and processing conditions, floral source, packaging and storage period. The aim of this study was to determine physico-chemical parameters of 61 honey samples of 7 different types (acacias, flowers, sages, limes, chestnuts, meadow and mountains meadow), collected from different areas of Republic of Croatia. Typical quality parameters (water, total reducing sugars, sucrose, insoluble solids and ash content, acidity, hydroxymethylfurfural and diastase activity) were measured. It was found that water content was between 13.9-18.6%, total reducing sugars 64.0-77.0%, sucrose 0.2-13.0%, insoluble solids 0.00-0.06%, ash content 0.07-0.50% and acidity between 6.1-35.0 mmol/kg. Content of hydroxymethylfurfural varied from 0.36-52.42 mg/kg and diastase activity from 7.38-34.72 DN.
