What you didn’t know about your honey.

Almost every single honey found in your local grocery store has no pollen in it whatsoever. Pollenless honey goes through a process called high temperature filtering. Filtering out the pollen from honey removes color, dilutes the product and of course, gets rid of the pollen. The biggest question people are asking is “Why remove the pollen?”.

Some Honey providers say that this process increases the honeys shelf life, but they do so by diluting the honey. Beekeepers state that traditional honey filtering methods remove all bee parts, bee wax and other visible contaminants from the honey, while still leaving the pollen. Having a longer shelf life for a product can’t be the only explanation for this process, so what is the main purpose?

Pollen is like the fingerprint of honey, to remove it is simply hiding where the true source of the honey is from; often, this true source is China. Canadian bee-keepers are being forced to close shop because they simply can’t compete with the prices that others are selling their counterfeit honey for. Often, these non-pollen honey’s substitute their honey with things like corn syrup and other artificial sweeteners.
