The purpose of the study was to characterize the physicochemical of 6 natural honeys, and to evaluate the antifungal activity of honey. Honey samples were collected from different locations of Algeria Republic. Pollen profile, moisture content, ash, electrical conductivity and pH, were the parameters analyzed in each honey sample. The antifungal activity of honey samples were tested by 100% and 50% (wt per vol) concentration against Candida albicans and Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, and by the agar well diffusion method and spectrophotometric assay. Ketoconazole 2% and Nystatin (100 U), were used as positive Controls.
