Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is produced in the anthers of flowering plants, bound together by honey bees with fructose, glucose and saliva. It is nature’s most perfect foods because it offers the most comprehensive range of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Bee nectar has been considered a miracle food for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians referred to it as ‘life-giving dust.’ The father of modern medicine, Hippocrates prescribed it for healing. Native Americans wore pouches containing pollen around their necks to sustain them on long journeys. It is even mentioned in the Bible and the Koran.

The pollen is made up of approximately 30% protein, 55% carbohydrate, 1% to 2% fat, and 3% minerals, vitamins and trace elements. Exact chemical composition varies depending on the plants the bees gather the pollen from, from colony to colony and year to year. No two samples are identical. The variety of different colours in it shows the bees have had exposure to many different types of plants.
