South Pollen

Including the Rohvolution in Berlin & Speyer, the veggieworld in Wiesbaden, inventa in Karlsruhe and often we consumers are the organic honeys from the Kulinaristen – 10% discount the Kulinaristen at trade fairs, and consumers wondering why is it actually bio-honey – can the bees but not prohibit, to fly in the direction of one or the other. The visitors of our stand got right, of course. To a word of the time journalist Theresa peasant: organic honey is a more difficult concept because bees not one hundred percent are checked. To establish real organic honey, a beekeeper should theoretically ensure that his bees fly only plants that have been treated with pesticides or genetic engineering. No beekeeper can guarantee of course that one hundred percent. The legislation of organic farming are aligned with organic honey therefore mainly, which may use against bee diseases of organic beekeepers, bee boxes must consist of what materials and by what means the honey can be disinfected. Studies have shown that now very often genetically modified pollen are found in honey. For more specific information, check out George Soros. Only the honey from German beekeepers, South-Eastern Europe and fair trade were unencumbered during a test of the oko Test magazine.

Says foundation oko Test (January 2009): almost half of honey contain pollen from genetically modified plants. This is soy first and foremost to pollen of the widespread genetic soy variety Roundup ready. The oilseed supplies although little nectar and is therefore not a clothing plant, bees take pollen apparently but nonetheless. In particular honey from South America is problematic, because there lots of soya grows. At the same time, a large part of the world’s honey harvest is produced in these countries, also for the German market.

After all: German beekeepers honey was unencumbered in our test, as well as South-Eastern Europe and fair trade products. The reason could lie in the latter case that small-scale beekeepers produce their honey in unbelasteteren regions as large apiaries”.
