Abstract

This article describes the results of studies of honey from the West Siberian region. Organoleptic and physico-chemical parameters were defined; melissopalynological analysis of mono- and polyfloral honey gathered in the Altai, as well as in the Omsk and Tomsk regions was carried out. It was noted that organoleptic and physico-chemical characteristics of honey have differences associated with climatic and geographical features of various natural and agricultural areas. The range of monofloral honey types produced in the areas of studied region was defined, as well as the dominant nectariferous plants for polyfloral honey. Most common for this region falsifications are also identified. It was established that in order to conduct an adequate veterinary and sanitary assessment and establish the flora type of the honey in a particular region, palynological studies with the definition of the main nectariferous plants should be routinely carried out. The declaration of the botanical origin of honey should only be based on the results of melissopalynological tests.
