Why doesn’t Busy Bee Honey contain natural pollen?

Most consumers prefer their honey without pollen or other matter in it. For them we offer our Busy Bee brand. It is filtered using the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) approved method, which removes most fine particles, pollen grains, air bubbles and other matter. By gently warming the honey, we’re delaying the honey from crystallizing.

If you’re wondering how pollen ends up in honey, here’s an explanation from the National Honey Board: pollen is an accidental guest in honey, brought back by the bee as a source of food for baby bees. The amount of pollen in honey is very minimal and not enough to impact the nutrient value of honey.
