Bee Pollen "Like holding a healthfood store in palm of your hand"
A supply of bee pollen is like holding a whole health food store in the palm of your hand. This one convenient source is a storehouse of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and oils, carbohydrates, amino acids, over 5,000 enzymes and coenzymes, hormones, peptones, polypeptides and globulins, high concentrations of the nucleic acids RNA and DNA, and a variety of antibiotic substances. Thus, many use honey bee pollen for health reasons.

GIFT FROM THE FLOWERS
In its original state, pollen is a fine powder composed of thousands of microscopic particles which are discharged from the anther of a flower, and is the male element of the plant which fertilizes like plants.
There are two kinds of pollen: anemophile ("friend of the wind"), and entomophile ("friend of the insect"). The former, which causes allergic reactions like hayfever, is dispersed by the air. The latter, which is the subject of this information, is gathered by the honeybee, whose travels from flower to flower make possible the reproduction of more than 80% of the world's grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes.
The individual pollen grain in encased in two protective coatings. The exine, composed of sporopollen and cellulose, is known to be acid-resistant, and has withstood temperatures in excess of 300 degrees C. Beneath this is the thinner, intine layer, which preserves oil and starch.

Q: How do I store it?
When buying a single pound of pollen it is usually just stored in the refrigerator. When customers buy pollen in larger bulk (i.e. 5lb bag) then the extra pollen is best stored in the freezer and a container you are using (i.e. 1lb in ziplock or other storage container) is stored in the fridge.
If you go on a trip (ie 1-2 week vacation) then it is perfectly fine to take the amount needed for your trip and not have it refrigerated. You would not want to leave it in a hot, locked up car in the summer, but to simply keep it with you as you travel at room temperature will be perfectly fine.
Q: How long does it last?
“Preppers” have been long time users of bee pollen because it is a natural food source that can be frozen and kept for a long period of time. For anyone buying pollen for personal consumption, a 5lb bag can be stored in the freezer for many months, if not several years, and remain nutritious for that period of time. If you plan on storing the pollen for a very long period (ie 1 year or more) then it would be best to vacuum seal the pollen as you would other foods for long term storage.
Q: Is bee pollen organic?
No bee keeper can consider pollen organic because insects are wild and fly where they wish. To be organic you must have full control over all aspects of the process and you can not control where bees go. With that said, they are very selective in the blooms that they work and collect pollen from. So if you buy bee pollen granules from us or any other provider, it is is considered raw or natural bee pollen.
Q: How is it dried & stored?
Our pollen is air dried and then kept in the freezer.
