Freshness of pollen

Dear Angela,

I have been buying pollen here in Malta from a place which specializes in honey products. They bring their pollen from France and when asked questions about freshness they told me that they bring the pollen in January and May to avoid the excessive heat and when transporting in Malta itself they do it early morning or late evening especially in summer. The last packet I bought looked and tasted different from the ones I bought before since June. The granules looked darker and to my eyes as if they have been moisted with something and there was a good quantity of pollen dust mingled with the granules in the packet, the taste was also on the bitter side.
With your permission and if it is no problem I am willing to send you a sample for your opinion.

Best Wishes,

Peter Faure.


Hi Peter,
Sure, we'd be happy to have a look at it if you'd like.
