Pollen Count

Pollen Count

Our pollen count test allows us to count and identify the number of common New Zealand pollen grains in your honey.

The test is often used to identify the flowers that bees have been visiting when collecting nectar, and is often requested for honey that does not meet the MPI definition of being a mono-floral or multi-floral mānuka.  Pollen count results can be needed for honey that is being exported to some overseas countries.

Interpreting the results of pollen counts is not as straight forward as you may think. Pollens can be over-represented or under-represented in the honey, and this representation depends on the characteristics of the particular flowers or plants involved.  To learn more about this, please read our tech note which explains how to understand your pollen count results.
