Honey Without Pollen Isn’t Honey at all! Who Took The Pollen Out?

Ultra filtering is a high-tech procedure where honey is heated, sometimes watered down and then forced at high pressure through extremely small filters to remove pollen, which is the only foolproof sign identifying the source of the honey. It is a spin-off of a technique refined by the Chinese, who have illegally dumped tons of their honey – some containing illegal antibiotics – on the U.S. market for years.

Richard Adee, whose 80,000 hives in multiple states produce 7 million pounds of honey each year is quoted as follows:

“Honey has been valued by millions for centuries for its flavor and nutritional value and that is precisely what is completely removed by the ultra-filtration process. There is only one reason to ultra-filter honey and there’s nothing good about it,” he says.  “It’s no secret to anyone in the business that the only reason all the pollen is filtered out is to hide where it initially came from and the fact is that in almost all cases, that is China,” Adee added.

So…it looks like China can be blamed for filtering the pollen out of our honey.  Just another VERY good reason to buy American and buy local!

    Thank you for posting this. Pollen in the honey is the primary reason that i buy local honey, to help build resistance against allergic reactions to local environmental pollutens. Now I learn that antibiotics have been added to commercial honeys, so I’m thankful for my long-standing choice to buy only local honey.

      You are very wise to spend the extra money and to go the extra mile for local honey! Clearly the commercial honey has no real value. Thanks for your input.
