Abstract: A flow injection analysis coupled to atomic spectroscopy was developed to determine Ca, Mg, Mn, K, Na and Zn in honey. The method involved a 30 cm dispersion tube length, 6 ml/min carrier solution flow-rate and 430 µL sample volume. Detection limits (in µg/g) were: Ca, 1.6; Mg, 4.8; Mn, 0.8; K, 27.0; Na, 3.6 and Zn, 0.4. Levels of these minerals in 19 Eucalyptus, 11 Helianthus annuus, 18 honeydew, 3 heather and 23 multifloral honeys are reported.
