This study examined for the investigation the effect of honey on antibacterial activity. The experimental honey were used the domestics, or chestnut honey, multiflower honey, acassia honey, native honey and the foreign, or manuka honey, clover honey, canola honey, and the artificial honey, made with the diluted solution of each 12.5%, 25.0%, 50.0%. The result of compared the occasion of added-catalase with not added-catalase about the honey's antibacterial activity on Staphylococcus aureus by agar well diffusion assay were as follows.When the catalase was not added, manuka honey antibacterial activity was superior to chestnut honey's in the diluted honey of 12.5% and on the occasion of the diluted honey of 25.0%, it was approved in the order of manuka honey > chestnut honey > multiflower honey > native honey > clover honey > acassia honey and the occasion of the diluted honey of 50.0%, it was approved in the order of manuka honey > chestnut honey > canola honey > native honey > multiflower honey > clover honey > acassia honey(p > 0.01). The clear zone representing inhibition of growth in diluted honey of 12.5, 25.0, 50.0 % with non-treat catalase ranged from 5.85 to 6.60, 4.26 to 8.27, 5.24 to 11.49 mm, respectively.When the the catalase was added, antibacterial activity only showed in the manuka honey of 12.5% and on the occasion of the diluted honey of 25.0%, manuka honey's antibacterial activity was superior to chestnut honey(p > 0.01). On the occasion of the diluted honey of 50.0%, antibacterial activity was high in the order of manuka honey > chestnut honey > clover honey > canola honey > native honey(p > 0.01). The correlation was approved significantly among the manuka honey, chestnut honey, clover honey, canola honey and native honey. The clear zone representing inhibition of growth in diluted honey of 12.5, 25.0, 50.0 % with treat catalase ranged from 5.89, 5.01 to 6.84, 3.10 to 8.28 mm, respectively.
