Abstract: Honey, a natural product of the genus Apis, usually contains a variety of nutritional and mineral substances which varies depending on the plant species on which the bee forage. It had been noted that over the years, there have been a greater increase in the demand of bitter honey over the sweet honey; this has led to increase in price of this honey type and more gain for the apiculturists. This study was then undertaken to compared the nutritional and mineral compositions of Nigeria bitter and sweet honey. The honey samples used were collected from ADEKAM apicultural farm in Ala community, Akure, Ondo State and analysed following Standards Association of Official Analytical Chemists protocol for nutritional composition and mineral compositions using standard calibrated machines.
