This probably is 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (i.e. the OH is substituted on position 5) but since the source leaves it unspecified, I would not mention it either.

Bee honey is a food with important properties like: bactericide, nutritive, and sweetener. Bee honey has a unique feature that depends on flowering and therefore, it is necessary to characterize honey for marketing. Some quality parameters of honey like hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), diastase activity (DA), and total acidity (TA) vary during the process and storage mainly. This should not confound the request of the international quality norm. Therefore, the objective was to determinate changes produced on HMF, total acidity and diastase activity on stored honey during 6 months. Bee honey was provided by beekeepers of Loma Bonita in Oaxaca State Mexico.
