C BICCHI, F BELLIARDO AND C FRATTINI
Mulifloral and unifloral honeys produced in different years in Piedmont, Italy, were analysed for the components responsible for their flavours. Fifty-two volatile components were identified by capillary gas-liquid chromatography and gas-liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry and are reported here. A comparison of 4 different techniques for extraction of honey volatiles is reported.
