    since all of the workers are technically virgin isn't all honey virgin ? Actually the definition as far as I know is honey that is taken from new comb without heat or pressure

    Sounds like nonsence to me. Unrefined honey is usually called Raw Honey in all my years I have never heard of anyone calling it Virgin Honey even out of new comb, though you could market honey out of new comb at a premium since there is no chance for contamination from residuals in wax.

    Che,
    No such term in American english in regards to honey or honey products.
    Could it mean "Organic" in Sweden?
    Or
    Someone has found a way to market their honey with a nice term that doesn't really mean anything.
    Hawkster & BeeTrucker may have a point that they could be selling honey in new comb.
    But, there is not a term "virgin" for that that I have ever heard.
    I may have to think about that for my honey.

    In the case of virgin olive oil, it is termed that because no chemicals are used in the process. Refined olive oil has been through some sort of chemical process to neutralize strong tastes (characterized as defects) and neutralize the acid content. So, maybe chemical or treatment free honey?

    The truest "virgin" honey would be comb honey from foundation-less supers.
    That's as close to "virgin" I.E. untouched/untreated/unaltered as I can think of that would be feasible to market.
