What is Bee Pollen?
Pollen is the male seed of flowers. This pollen ‘dust’ is collected, mixed with a little honey or nectar and tamped down into the honey bee’s pollen baskets on her back legs. She will bring this back to the hive where it will be mixed with some honey (then called bee bread) and stored in honeycomb cells until needed to feed the larvae.
In the process of collecting pollen for her hive, a foraging bee is also pollinating our flowers, fruits, nuts, vegetables and many other crops. In fact, honey bees alone pollinate 30% of the world’s food. She has a very important job to do!
One granule of Bee Pollen may contain up to five million pollen spores!
Why Eat Bee Pollen?
Bee Pollen is an easy, natural source of protein, free amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and folic acid. It is a complete food containing many elements that animal based products don’t have.
Sprinkle Bee Pollen on your cereal in the morning, in yogurt or in a protein shake, and enjoy a boost of energy. The taste is somewhat nutty so eating a spoonful on its own is tasty as well.
