The monofloral honey made from resin spurge (Euphorbia resinifera) is considered an important commercial product in Northern Africa. Researchers, in a study published in CyTA – Journal of Food, set out to identify parameters that distinguish resin spurge honey from those made from other species of Euphorbia, specifically Euphorbia officinarum and Euphorbia regis-jubae.
The researchers wrote that sugar profile and electrical conductivity could be used as parameters to differentiate resign spurge honey from those made from other Euphorbia species.
