Re: Tests Show Most Store Honey Isnít Honey
...and there is where the problem lays Graham. We are grouping what are accepted filtration practices (not saying its good, just that it is commonly done to extend shelf life) together with ultra-filtration done by those who are trying to conceal what they are importing into the country. In short we are assigning devious motives to a process that has been used by honey packers for decades. I am aware of no honey standard that requires that there be pollen in honey. Whether there should be such a requirement is a whole different argument. Personally I wish there were. I think packers can tweak there process a bit and still get pretty good shelf life on their product. Let's just not paint them as criminals for doing what they have always done.
