PT HARVEST GEMILANG INDONESIA
Indonesia has the largest tropical rain forest in Asia, One of the best natural products from Indonesian forests is PURE HONEY, where almost all of the world recognizes the quality of pure honey from Indonesia.
PT HARVEST GEMILANG INDONESIA, in collaboration with bee farmers on the Indonesian island of Sumatra in marketing collaboration and education about the importance of consuming pure honey every day.
The Government of the Republic of Indonesia has provided support for us to market bee products throughout the country and we will develop and market it throughout the country with the best Pure quality ever
THE ACTIVITY OF ANTIBACTERIAL AGENT OF HONEY AGAINST Staphylococcus aureus
Honey contains compounds that is antibacterial. There is three systems that play a role, namely pressure osmosis, acidity and inhibine. Third these factors, whether working alone or together, reduce attendance or growth mostly contaminant microorganisme. Osmotic pressure. Honey is a saturated or passing solution saturated from sugar with water content usually only about 15-21% of the weight. Solids in honey, 84% is a mixture of monosaccharides, namely fructose and glucose. The interaction stronger than sugar molecules it with water molecules produces very few water molecules available to microorganisme. The effectiveness of honey as Antibacterial can also be used against Staphylococcus aureus. Among the antibacterial systems that found in honey, presumably hydrogen peroxide (inhibine compound) has more roles than other
ANALYSIS OF HABITAT COLONY OF APIS DORSATA FOREST BEES AND THE QUALITY OF HONEY Produced
Forest Area with Special Purpose (KHDTK) Riau is a research forest (HP) in Central Sumatra, where there is a beehive tree (sialang) regularly inhabited by Apis dorsata forest bee colonies. The existence of sialang trees are sources of honey for forest honey collectors around the area. The research was conducted to determine (1) the potential of Riau HP as sialang habitat and (2) the quality of honey produced through survey and observation approaches. Vegetation analysis was used to determine the vegetation structure of plants of bee feed sources in the beehive siege habitat. The physicochemical test of honey was used to analyze the quality of honey based on water content, pH, hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) content, acidity level, reducing sugar content, and phytochemical content. The analysis showed that there were 17 species of tree, 7 species of poles, 7 species of saplings and 8 species of seedlings. The highest Important Value Index (IVI) at the tree level was Acacia mangium (62.0%) as the source of the nectar, at pole level was Vitex pinnata (63.2%) as the source of pollen, at the sapling level was Glochidion sp. (53.5%) as the source of pollen, and at level of seedlings was Ficus variegata (34.3%) as the source of pollen. The results of laboratory analysis showed that harvested forest honey meet the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) 01-3545-2013, with the exception of the water content. Honey contains phytochemical components of flavonoids, alkaloids, saponins, and triterpenoids.
