Honeys and Derivatives are Consumer Products in Côte d’Ivoire. Several products are available. The authenticity of honey is of great importance for commercial and health reasons. This work was to carry out a physic-chemical and microscopy study of the quality of honey commercialized and search adulerations, which are prohibited in Codex Alimentarius. pH, density, electrical conductivity, water and sugar contents, as well as microscopic were study. The microscopic analysis of honey was intended to identify honeys pollen content. Non-compliant honey were detected. Analyzes showed that some products commercialized as honey were adulteration products.
