ABSTRACT
In order to characterize and authenticate the volatile profile of Rhododendron honey, a solid phase micro extraction followed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis, was performed on 14 Rhododendron honey samples from the Black Sea Region of Turkey. A variety of volatiles, particularly organic acids, phenols, esters, ketones and alcohols were detected. A total of 72 volatile compounds were identified, 1,2 benzenedicarboxylic acid, tributhyl phosphate, stearic acid, propanoic acid, benzene, ethylphenylacetate and benzophenone were recognized mainly as specific floral origin markers of Rhododendron honey. Head space extraction method was emphasized as an auxiliary alternative to pollen analysis for floral detection of honey.
