Abstract


Multifloral honey of indigenous giant honeybee A. dorsata (wild) and Indian hivebee, A. cerana indica (apiary) were collected from Shimoga, Karnataka and its minor constituents like minerals, vitamins and proteins were determined during February 2011 to March 2012. The potassium content of honey of A.dorsata was 70.12 ppm while honey of A.cerana had 68.50ppm. The potassium content of honey of A.dorsata was highest (70.12 ppm), and honey of A. cerana was least (68.50ppm). The chromium content of honey of A.dorsata was maximum (0.027ppm) while, honey of A.cerana was minimum (0.025ppm). The thiamine (B1) content of honey of A.dorsata was 0.09 ? gms., while honey of A.cerana was highest of 0.08 ? gms. The pyridoxine (B6) content of honey of A.dorsata was maximum of 1.80 ? gms. and minimum of 1.44 ? gms. from A cerana honey. The protein content of honey of A.dorsata was highest (0.67%) and least (0.59%) from honey of A.cerana. The potassium of honey from all two honeybee species was statistically significant at 1 % (p
