    Default Bee Pollen sizing

    I'm packaging bee pollen for the first time and had a number of questions:

    Is bee pollen the same weight as honey? Do you sell it in jars standardized for honey weight? (queenline, etc)
    Is there a common size for selling it? (1#, 8oz, 4oz, etc)

    Are selling in baggies an option?

    We recently started selling pollen. We use the 4oz classic plastic honey bottles. They don't weight 4oz with pollen in the bottles I think they weight around 2-3oz not sure I would have to go back an weight some.

    The weight of pollen will vary dependent upon the moisture content. I sell fresh frozen pollen. It will weigh more than dried pollen. I sell a 2 lb. honey jar full of pollen which weighs 1 lb. I also sell an 8 oz. jar which weighs in at
    four ounces. If this pollen was dry, a larger weight would fit into those jars. Experiment and see what works for you.
