The objective of this study was to evaluate the quality of 10 honey samples produced in Algeria. The samples were prepared using the methodology described by Louveaux and co-workers. Honeys were considered to be monofloral whenever the dominant pollen was found to be over 45% of total pollen. The results obtained in the present study show the variability of the honey samples. The botanical families Myrtaceae, Rutaceae and Lamiaceae are most frequently found. The identified pollen spectrum of honey confirmed their botanical origin.
Key words: Honey, Algeria, pollen spectrum, botanical origin.
