  • Introduction Enzymes are complex proteins formed in living cells that bring about the many processes and reactions in living materials. Honey naturally contains small amounts of enzymes. The predominant enzymes in honey are diastase (amylase), invertase (glucosidase) and glucose oxidase. Others, including catalase and acid phosphatase, can also be present. Honey’s enzyme content can vary widely by floral source and region. 1
