Ok, so let's not get into any big discussions about the validity of pollen consumption for humans.
I know there are different schools of thought, especially after searching on this topic. But I didn't see a lot of information about the proper care of pollen after collection if you want to sell it for human consumption. Here's what I mean:
I have a Sundance trap on the bottom of my strongest hive. I'm getting about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup each day. I'm putting each day in a separate baggie and putting it in the freezer, unsealed, to help it dry a little.
How long, in the freezer, before it reachs appropriate dryness?
Is it a waste of time to keep it in separate baggies? Should I just dump it in a big tupperware container and aggitate from time to time?
What do you do?
I'm going to construct my own cleaner using a computer cooling fan and some detailed plans. Should I defrost before cleaning? Does it matter?
Thanks, and I'm looking forward to your responses.
