    Re: What is raw honey?

    Re: meliponine bees or stingless bees

    I was able to visit apiaries of both Melipona and Trigona stingless bees in the Yucatan. Meliponas make around 4 kilos a year. Sells for about $100/kilo. I doubt you could get any, they told me the...

    But if one added pollen would it no longer be raw?

    Re: What is raw honey?

    I do, but, like you say, it is merely a buzzword to differentiate honey which has not been heated from mass-produced store honey. The straining/filtering issue I see as a separate thing altogether.

    Pretty much what was covered in the first dozen or so posts, with remarkable (for BeeSource) agreement. The next 200 or so posts was just us trying to impress each other.

    Re: What is raw honey?

    When I looked closely at the stuff that was sitting on my filter, there were small black specks that were pretty plainly dirt, I assume tracked onto the comb by bees.

    Re: What is raw honey?

    Yeah.
    I've looked at the stuff that came off the fine screen under a microscope. I don't pretend to recognize everything I saw but would recognize pollen.

    I'm still not following. What particles between 200 and 400 microns contribute to honey being "raw".

    Re: What is raw honey?

    Well, the way I use it, it's the bottom layer in the stack. Above it, I have a 600 that gets switched out often, then a cone of 1/8" wire screen. Works pretty well. I don't just strain, I strain the...

    Sure, try running honey through a coffee filter.
    (Actually, a filter removes smaller particles than a strainer.)

    Re: What is raw honey?

    Where does filtering end and straining begin? Seems like 200 microns gets the sand out but lets most of the asbestos through.
