Honeybees gather flower pollen bringing it back to the hive in balls packed with some nectar in the pouches of the back legs.
Pollen is the bees’ only source of protein. By placing a screen at the hive’s entrance, beekeepers are able to collect part of the pollen.
When the bees pass through the tiny holes of the screen, the pollen falls from their pouches into a small drawer. The beekeeper then prepares it for dehydration and conservation.
Pollen can also be eaten fresh(see Fresh Pollen) although the conservation is shorter. It keeps well in the freezer without its beneficial properties being altered.
Specific qualities :
Pollen is rich in protein, B vitamins, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, bore, and other trace minerals making beneficial for good health. Fortifying and toning, it aids general well-being like Royal Jelly a concentration of 100% natural energy.
