Knowledge of the concentrations and identity of the antioxidant components of Australian floral honeys, including polyphenols such as flavonoids and phenolic acids, will enable consumers and the food industry to make better choices as to the floral type of honey they use for health and nutrition. This publication considers the extraction of antioxidant flavonoids and other polyphenols from straight-line samples of species-specific floral types of Australia honey, namely yapunyah, leatherwood and Salvation Jane honeys, and the identification and quantification of these antioxidants. 2005 94pp, Pub No 05/040; $21
