SHOW ME THE HONEYEarth and Environmental Sciences
- Mrs. Melissa Landau
"Commercial (store bought) honey and artisanal (from local beekeepers) honey can contain pollen from one or more species. I hypothesized that artisanal honey would have more pollen species than the store-bought honey. To prove this hypothesis, I compared the number of pollen species or different shapes in 3 samples from store bought honey and 3 samples that were sold as artisanal honey from Arizona and Sonora. My results showed a commercial brand honey had the highest diversity of pollen species (7 species) in contrast pollen in artisanal honey was lower from 0 to 2 species. "
