Bee pollen is one of nature’s unique and complex super-foods. Bee pollen is 100% natural, an ideal food supplement and an excellent addition to a balanced, healthy diet. Bee pollen provides energy and nutrients.
Bee pollen is often referred to as nature’s ‘perfect food’ due to the presence of all 22 nutrients required by the human body and has been traditionally used by athletes for its energy boosting and immune strengthening properties.
Bee pollen also known as Bee Bread, is a basic protein source for the bees and gives them the energy to provide all the necessary functions of the hive. The pollen is stored in cells side by side with the honey. Bee Pollen comes in varying shapes and sizes depending on the plant from which it is collected. This pollen is multi-coloured ranging from bright yellow through to a dark greyish-black.
The bees collect the pollen from plant anthers and then add a small amount of secretion from their salivary glands and some nectar to bond it together. They then store the pollen on their back legs in what is commonly referred to as pollen baskets before taking it back the hive.
Beekeepers place a small device called a pollen trap in the hive which scrapes a small amount of pollen from the bee as it enters the hive. This excess pollen falls into a collection area in the trap.
