Simulation studies on coating of steel balls with honey as well AT the rheological measurements were carried out at different moisture contents (20.3-37.7%, dry basis). and temperatures (5-8OC). The coating characteristics of honey were judged by the thickness of honey layer, and by the proposed index, dimensionless uptake. Honey possesses extremely high viscosity at low temperatures and/or at low moisture contents. The sensitivity of honey viscosity with temperature was determined by using Arrhenius equation. Enhanced values of dimensionless uptake and thickness were obtained at low temperature-low moisture combinations. Viscosity of honey for easy handling and coating is in the neighborhood of I3 mPas corresponding to a temperature of 50C.
