Honey Wheel in the News!

Aug 14, 2014
The newly-minted Honey Flavor and Aroma Wheel, developed right here at the Honey and Pollination Center, has been at the center of much attention!

Amina Harris explains how to taste honey to the Sacramento Bee's Debbie Arrington.

Watch the video here. 

“Most people just say ‘sweet,’ ” said Amina Harris, director of the Honey and Pollination Center at UC Davis’ Robert Mondavi Institute for Food and Wine Science. “But honey is so much more.” Depending on its nectar source, honey can be floral, fruity, smoky, woody, spicy, nutty or earthy. It can smell fresh as grass or pungent like aged cheese. It can look nearly clear as water or dark as molasses.
