Beekeeping literature contains numerous references to the fact that honey is eaten by some people for its pollen content. Consequently, the writer was interested in learning what kinds of pollen are contained in honey. Thirteen samples were studied to determine their pollen content. These samples were secured directly from beekeepers or were purchased in local stores. The source of honey samples and the number of pollen grains counted in each is shown in Table I.
