Honey the most explored apiproduct from medicinal as well economic point of view worldwide. It has been widely adopted as food and medicine by both ancient and modern generations. Honey is a viscous, sweet and palatable liquid palatable with high nutritional value and array of health benefits. The colour of honey is characteristics of its floral source due to minerals and other minor components. Raman infrared spectra provide complementary intonation about the vibrations of molecules and in consequence about the functional groups that constitute the product analysed the enriched coloured honey.by FT - Raman spectroscopy and chemometrics. Fourier transforms infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) reveals to phytochemical profiles containing overlapping singles from a wide array of the compounds. This study was carried out to identify the reactive functional groups present in enriched coloured honey.
