Does Filtering or Straining Honey Remove Pollen From Honey?

Does Filtering or Straining Honey Remove Pollen From Honey?

The average pollen grain is 25 microns wide, much smaller than the smallest filter a non-commercial beekeeper will have.  Filters designed for straining honey for hobby beekeepers come in three sizes, 200 microns, 400 microns and 600 microns. These numbers represent the size of the tiny holes in each filter.
