Abstract

Honey samples collected from the Saidabad area of Azarbaijan province of Iran were found to be moderately irritant, and this activity was associated with the presence of tri-acylates of the diterpene ingenol, which are transferred from the nectar of Euphorbia seguieriana Neck by honey bees to the honey. The acylates of ingenol are known promoters of carcinogenesis.
