Abstract

Introduction Trigona honey (Tetragonula biroi) is a type of honey produced by stingless bees that is one of
the local products in South Sulawesi with the Tetragonula species widely known to the public. Objective This
study was to determine the nutritional content of trigona honey and components of its secondary metabolite
compounds as herbal therapy for the disease. Method This study aims to analyze the content of bioactive
compounds of trigona honey is using phytochemical test and proximate test method. Result Phytochemical
test show trigona honey had bioactive compounds flavonoid, alkaloid and triterpenoid. Proximate test using
thin-layer chromatography (TLC) showed that methanol extract of honey trigona (tetragonula biroi) contains
vitamin C 0.15%, flavonoids 159.62 ppm, polyphenols 133.52 ppm, and there are magnesium, calcium,
zinc and beta carotene. Conclusion Trigona honey contains metabolite compounds such as polyphenols,
flavonoids, alkaloids, and triterpenoids.
