100% Pure Bee Pollen from Peculiar, MO.
Foraging bees bring pollen back to the hive and pass it off to another worker bee. The pollen is mixed with nectar, enzymes, fungi, and bacterial organisms that transform the pollen into bee pollen. The resulting material is higher in nutritional value than the untreated pollen. Like royal jelly, honey, and propolis, the exact chemical composition of pollen gathered depends on which plants the worker bees gather. The average composition is said to contain 55% carbohydrates, 35% proteins, 3% minerals and vitamins, and 2% fatty acids. Bee pollen is the primary source of protein for the hive.
