Is filtered honey still “real” honey?

Honey is filtered to remove all or most of the fine particles, pollen grains, air bubbles, or other materials that are suspended in the honey. This increases the time that honey can be stored on the shelf before beginning its natural crystallization process.

Because honey is made by bees from flower and plant nectars, and not from pollen, the absence of pollen from filtered honey doesn’t make it any less “real” or natural. And it doesn’t reduce any of the proven benefits of consuming honey.
