Extracted honey is then run through a fine mesh sieve to remove small flakes of wax and other debris down to 500 microns in size. This process results in clear, clean honey WITHOUT removing the pollen, which ranges in size from 10 to 150 microns, naturally present in the honey. Not only does this produce a complete, wholesome product, but by examining the pollen found in honey, it can be determined when and where the nectar made into honey was collected by the bees.
How is this different from "regular" honey?
Mass-produced honey is typically heated and filtered in order to produce a crystal clear product that will usually not crystalize. Heating causes the enzymes in honey to break down and changes the flavor while filtering removes all the pollen from the honey. Pollen is the usual nucleation point which causes honey to crystalize so your "store-bought" honey will usually remain liquid for years. However, removing the pollen also removes any possibility that the honey's origins may be traced. There have been reports that mass-produced honey has been adulterated with cheap honey of unknown origins shipped from overseas or simply by adding manufactured sugars such as high fructose corn syrup.
