Honey flavor wheel being developed in Davis

Friday, June 14, 2013

Honey, just like wine, has diverse flavor notes.

In order to help consumers identify those flavors, an institute in Davis will develop a honey tasting and aroma wheel.

Researchers say the tool will describe the different factors that influence honey. For example, if a bee pulls nectar from a citrus blossom, the honey will have a fruity flavor.

The California Bountiful Foundation and U.C. Davis have already made donations to the project.
