Abstract

The diastatic number in five samples of honey has been determined by two methods: according to guidelines included in Polish standard PN-88/A-77626 and the Phadebas method. Research shows that the storage of honeys did not have a significant impact on lowering of diastatic number. However, long-term storage of honey was characterized a reduction of the diastase number. The correlation between the two applied methods was very strong (r = 0.921).
