Abstract: Honey dew is collected by honey bees, which transform it into a strongly flavoured dark colour honey less sweet than floral honey. It is prized in many parts of Europe which often cause increased prices. It is quite common in a number of countries from Europe, including Romania and Poland. Our study aimed to realise a comparative study in terms of physical-chemical and biochemical characteristics of five honeydew honey samples from the western part of Romania and five honeydew honey samples from Podkarpackie regions of Poland. Physical-chemical routine or basic parameters, like ash, humidity, pH, acidity, electrical conductivity and biochemical parameters, like sugar profile, proline and protein, were analysed according to the Romanian Standard Analysis Methods and Harmonised methods of the IHC, or with specific methods.The results obtained show that all the tested samples were authentic honeydew honey, in respect to the legislative requirements.The tested Polish honeydew honey samples had significantly higher value for ash, water, proline, fructose, sucrose, fructose+glucose and for fructose/glucose, in comparison with tested Romanian honeydew honey samples.
