did a bit of translation and posted on our beekeeping forum and this is what i got in returnt from a fellow beekeeper from canada-he also found this somewhere on the net:

Code:
I am among a group of beekeepers in the U.S. who are suspicious of
the validity of your story "Sugar free honey for Himachal." Two
important points are not explained in the article:

1) How will stevia be used to feed the bees? While stevia leaves
taste sweet to humans, it contains none of the carbohydrates that
bees need to survive. Unlike humans, bees cannot be fooled into
eating something that "tastes like" their natural food. Sugar-free
food will not work for bees.

2) Even if the bees could survive under this treatment, how would
they produce "sugar-free honey"? By definition, honey contains sugar.
Bees store honey as future food for themselves. They cannot
manufacture sugar-free honey.

"Sugar free honey" could be a chemical concoction that has some of
the physical properties of honey (color, viscosity, etc.) and a sweet
taste from an added artificial sweetener. Anyone who believes
honeybees can assist in the manufacture of such a product has
absolutely no understanding of honeybees, and such a project is
doomed to fail.



Just as i thought, feeding stevia is like getting drunk with an alcohol-free beer Smiley

I'm adding sugar free honey, fat free pork, and alcohol free whiskey to my list of oxymorons to go along with fresh from concentrate.
