Bee Pollen Granules
We carry only whole dried granules
. Because of this
we have full confidence of the product being
completely bee pollen
. The granules are formed on bees legs as they
collect it from the flowers. When the bees enter their hive they pass thru a
pollen screen which scraps the pollen off of their legs. Bee keepers are careful
to limit the use of the screens so that the bees have plenty of pollen to eat
for themselves. Pollen is a complete food and along with a little honey provides
the bees total diet.
: Bee Pollen Powder is typically a blend of Bee Pollen and Human
Harvested Pollen powder. Many tablets are made from this blend. Human Harvested
Pollen Powder does not have the nutritional benefits of Bee Pollen as the Bees
impart enzymes into the pollen which changes the protein into free amino acids
which are directly assimilated by the human body. It is very important to watch
labels closely, many labels state they contain
bee pollen (this could
mean less than 1% bee pollen) with the balance being human harvested pollen.
People with allergies to pollen generally are not allergic to bee pollen.
Our product is dried until it is very dry
. Our Bee
keeps better than high moisture
Bee Pollen. Due to its low moisture
levels - bacteria, molds and oxidation do not develop as they can in high
moisture products typically sold elsewhere. High moisture product containing 10%
more moisture should cost ten percent less in comparison to ours. Ours is
dried at low temperatures
to retain its full nutritional value.
Bee Pollen contains around 50% Protein
of which is in the form of
free amino acids
. It is also high in the B Complex Vitamins
All natural low temperature dried honey bee pollen granules with no
additives of any kind. High in protein and the B-complex vitamins.
These bee pollen granules have been dried to a very dry state to
maintain full nutritional value. The color varies by flower type.
Typically the darker the color the stronger the flavor. Flavor can vary
between sweet to very strong.
Granules can be sprinkled on salads for added flavor. It is best to mix
into foods after cooking as enzymes are destroyed by heat.
