Abstract: Honey is a natural sweetener and the most important product of beekeeping by ancient times. Moreover, its consumption is correlated to many beneficial properties for human health due to its antioxidant capacity. Thus, due to its high demand and production cost, it is subjected to fraudulent practices. Phenolic compounds, which can be estimated as the most valuable nutritive constituents of honey samples, can be used as authenticity markers. This can be attributed to the fact that the phenolic content of honey is greatly affected by geographical and botanical origin. So, the evaluation and verification of honey authenticity are of paramount importance for the producers, consumers and regulatory bodies.Summary: Honey is a natural sweetener and the most important product of beekeeping by ancient times.
