Methods for reducing the water content of honey, especially in the humid tropics, were discussed at a Conference on the Asiatic Hive Bee held in Malaysia in 1988. The proceedings, published in 1995, include a chapter on the subject. Large-scale beekeepers and honey packers in other parts of the world have also devised systems for reducing the water content of honey, or adapted systems developed for other foodstuffs. This article examines the reasons for removing water from honey, and assesses methods available for doing it.
