Recently I came across a couple of studies that were among the first I carried out; some others have been lost and some are in private ownership. The studies which follow are all based on patterns I saw and explored, and I thought it might be useful to place them here for the record.
Honey barbecue and honey mustard are other common flavors used in sauces. The inset shows a close-up of the honey, showing the individual glucose grains in the fructose mixture. The physical properties of honey vary, depending on water content, the type of flora used to produce it pasturagetemperature, and the proportion of the specific sugars it contains.
Fresh honey is a supersaturated liquid, containing more sugar than the water can typically dissolve at ambient temperatures.
At room temperature, honey is a supercooled liquid, in which the glucose will precipitate into solid granules. This forms a semisolid solution of precipitated glucose crystals in a solution of fructose and other ingredients.
Below this temperature, honey can be either in a metastable state, meaning that it will not crystallize until a seed crystal is added, or, more often, it is in a "labile" state, being saturated with enough sugars to crystallize spontaneously.
Honeys that are supersaturated with a very high percentage of glucose, such as brassica honey, crystallize almost immediately after harvesting, while honeys with a low percentage of glucose, such as chestnut or tupelo honey, do not crystallize.
Some types of honey may produce very large but few crystals, while others produce many small crystals.
Crystal nuclei seeds tend to form more readily if the honey is disturbed, by stirring, shaking, or agitating, rather than if left at rest.
Therefore, larger but fewer crystals tend to form at higher temperatures, while smaller but more-numerous crystals usually form at lower temperatures. At very low temperatures, honey does not freeze solid.
Instead, as the temperatures become lower, the viscosity of honey increases. Like most viscous liquidsthe honey becomes thick and sluggish with decreasing temperature. Below this temperature, honey enters a glassy state and becomes an amorphous solid noncrystalline.
The sheet-like appearance of the flow is the result of high viscosity and low surface tension, contributing to the stickiness of honey. The higher the water percentage, the more easily honey flows. Above its melting point, however, water has little effect on viscosity.
Aside from water content, the composition of honey also has little effect on viscosity, with the exception of a few types. Viscosity increase due to temperature occurs very slowly at first. Honeys from heather or manuka display thixotropic properties.
These types of honey enter a gel-like state when motionless, but then liquify when stirred. Measurements of the electrical conductivity are used to determine the quality of honey in terms of ash content.
Variations in the water content alter the refractive index of honey. Water content can easily be measured with a refractometer. Typically, the refractive index for honey ranges from 1. Honey also has an effect on polarized lightin that it rotates the polarization plane. The fructose gives a negative rotation, while the glucose gives a positive one.
The overall rotation can be used to measure the ratio of the mixture. The amount of water the honey absorbs is dependent on the relative humidity of the air. Honey tends to absorb more water in this manner than the individual sugars allow on their own, which may be due to other ingredients it contains.
On the left is how it appears fresh, but the honey on the right has been aged at room temperature for two years.
While still edible, the Maillard reaction produces considerable differences in the color and flavor of the aged honey. Like all sugar compounds, honey caramelizes if heated sufficiently, becoming darker in color, and eventually burns.As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from initiativeblog.com This is a picture of the encyclopedic dictionaries that I used.
