So I had been wondering what the 'ratio's of pollen to honey were in natural bee bread in the comb that they do themselves?

Have others already researched this?

I don't mean what's in bee bread in the comb, but the actual ratios.

This ratio, which is most natural and knowing it would have a lot of uses when we're figuring out what ratios to do for pollen and sugar mixes etc.

And it piques the curiosity.

Doesn't really pique the curiosity and does not matter, it provides sugar and moisture which results in lactic acid fermentation which preserves it.
Don't over think stuff so much.

I really think that once the OP gets bees, he will quicky find that there are a lot of things that:
1) Are self explanatory
2) Don't matter
3) Do matter, but you are too busy to worry about them

Another LOL.
Anyway, I just eat the darn thing (i.e. bee bread) whatever it has - good for me.
