  abstract =     "Honeys from specified botanical sources often command
                 a premium price due to their organoleptic or
                 pharmacoactive properties. To prevent the fraudulent
                 marketing of honey, analytical techniques are required
                 to confirm its origin.

                 NMR spectroscopy has been used to identify biomarkers
                 of botanical and geographical origin for European
                 honey. One-dimensional 1H NMR spectra were acquired
                 from 374 authentic European honeys collected during 2
                 years, with the majority of these (220) taken from the
                 island of Corsica. Biomarkers of sweet chestnut,
                 Corsican spring Maquis and Arbousier (strawberry-tree)
                 honeys were identified. Kynurenic acid was found to be
                 a biomarker of sweet chestnut honey. [alpha]-Isophorone
                 and 2,5-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid were confirmed as
                 markers of strawberry-tree honey. Additional compounds
                 specific to strawberry-tree and Corsican spring Maquis
                 honey were partially characterised.",
