  • Conversion to dry matter honey

    Hello!!! I would like to measure the conductivity of honey. I have found that i need to dilute a quantiy of equivalent 20g anhydrous honey to water. I know that the moisture is 18% in my sample of honey, which is the calculation i should do?

    I've never heard of anhydrous honey, so I am not 100% certain. If your honey has 18% moisture, then I assume the dry matter is 82%, so 0.82m = 20g or m = 24.4 g of your honey has 20 g of dry content. If you mix with a specific amount of water, remember there is 4.4 g of moisture in your honey sample which should be subtracted from the amount of water.
