    Re: OAV with honey supers/Fall Extraction Blues

    I would say the food grade is kinda implied for a single chemical like oxalic. They put it in baking powder which goes in food. I think they put it in hot dogs as a thing to keep the hot dogs fresh...

    I learned something from your link that I did not know. It stated that they also produce nectar the old fashioned way though the flower. Thanks for posting.
