Abstract

Objective: Honey possesses antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. Many chronic diseases are associated with increased oxidative stress caused by an imbalance between free-radical production and the antioxidant level. For that purpose, the total phenolic contents, antioxidant potentials and antimicrobial activities of nine honey samples obtained from East Black Sea Region was investigated.
