Re: Pollen in Honey
If it's right behind cappings, which is what it sounds like jrb is saying, I wonder how much is lost in capping removal, even if we drain and keep capping honey? Does the capping drained honey then have more pollen? That's the honey I keep for myself only because it's been exposed to air longer than my spun honey. I have a capping tank but I leave cappings for several days before putting it in a sealed pail.
I personally thought that they put pollen in honey because its food, the nectar and pollen becomes honey.
