Physicochemical Properties of Dhania Honey
Honey is in great triumph on the tremendous using since the ancient times of the world history in view of effective healing, antiseptic, antioxidant and antibacterial therapy in defiance of panoply of food produces. The current study intent was to come to fight the physical and biochemical properties of dhania honey. The study results divulged to contribute 14.6±0.01% moisture, 0.19±0.01% ash, 84.378 % total carbohydrate, 0.83±0.01% protein, 0.002±0.00% fat and 75% TSS in dhania honey. There were detected 34.085 Kcal/100 g DIT and 340.85 Kcal/100 g dietary energy content retaining 4.76 pH level.
