Currently, most of the technologies used to identify honey quality are inefficient and costly. There is a necessity to develop a more effective one for honey quality assessment. Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) has the potential to be such a technique for its unique characteristics. This study reviews recent advances and applications of NIR spectroscopy in honey authentication domain including constituents, adulteration, brand, botanical origin and geographical origin. It presents a comprehensive using of this technology, with advantages and limitations, in honey quality detection, which offers insights on selecting the most appropriate NIR spectroscopic method for samples presentation, spectral acquisition, spectral pretreatment and modeling. Future research is to be focused on increasing model robustness, developing overall NIR spectroscopic database and a NIR-based integrated technology system on honey quality assessment.
