Geographical Origin Of Honeys

Local floras have characteristic plant associations that are reflected in the corresponding spectrum of pollen types represented in local honeys. This often enables to identify the geographical origin of honey samples. Honeys are often marketed under labels indicating their locality such as Kashmir honey, Nepal honey, Coorg honey, Mahabaleshwar honey and regions such as Mediterranean, African and Caribbean, Australian and New Zealand, Mexican, Candian, Asiatic Russia, etc. (Sawyer 1988) with incidental consumer preferences that can be protected through pollen analysis. As early as 1895, Pfister had suggested that pollen could be used to determine the geographic origin of honey. Five hundred to one thousand pollen grains per honey sample should be counted to determine the precise phytogeographic province.
