Great read, great info, great research, ....... I cant remember how many microns my filters go down to? I hope its not 200.
First thing I thought when reading how pollen is used to trace honey back to its location of production and that the pollen is filtered out to hide the evidence of origin, that the Chinese or others will just simply add pollen to the honey if honey without pollen was banned from shelfs. It is so sad that we pay so much money in taxes to fund organizations that are supposed to protect us and they simply drag their feet. My uncle works for a dairy. He just told my at our turkey day dinner that the state just sent all wisconsin dairy farmer a letter saying that they needed to send them their social security number because it is needed for the ability to track all food products to their place of origin. They are told all numbers will be encrypted so there is no risk. If they dont supply the number they will lose their grade A certification or something. Amazing, yet we import food from all over the world, how are we going to track that stuff? This country is messed up beyond repair.
I would like to start selling honey at a small farmers market about five miles from my home next summer. If I actually get to that point, this would be a great piece of info to offer customers for two reasons. One, they should be informed, two, inspire customers to return for more REAL HONEY!
