Bee Pollen has been called
"The World's First Health Food"
because its healing powers were first described in the Bible and ancient Chinese and Egyptian texts.
Bee Pollen contains nearly every known nutrient required for a balanced human diet. Bee Pollen is approximately 25% Protein, 50% carbohydrates and 14% polyunsaturated beneficial fatty acids. It is rich in natural hormones, carotenoids, flavonoids and phytosterols. In addition, bee pollen more than a dozen vitamins, 28 minerals, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes and 18 amino acids.
Bee Pollen’s protein pound for pound is higher in essential amino acids than beef, cheese or even eggs.
What is Bee Pollen?
Pollen grains are the male seeds or reproductive cells of flower blossoms. Besides collecting nectar from flowers, bees select only those pollens that contain the greatest amounts of protein and other nutrients. The bees mix them with nectar and some of the bees’ own secretions and take them to their hives. Bees use this pollen as food.
What does it taste like?
Quality Bee Pollen is soft, colorful (looks like tiny yellow, tan, orange and brown balls). It varies in taste depending on the plants form which it comes. Some bee pollen has a slightly sweet and nut-like flavor.
How is pure pollen processed (cleaned)?
Actually it is not processed at all. Pure natural unprocessed bee pollen is simply cleaned to remove obvious foreign particles such as bee wings and legs. Occasionally you will find one of those in your pollen and you should not be alarmed.
How should I store my pollen?
It is recommended that you store your pollen in the freezer. Pollen is a “food” and can spoil after a period of time at room temperature. Freezing the pollen will keep it fresh for a year or more.
How do I feed bee pollen?
I mix the Bee Pollen into my hard-boiled egg mixture which I feed to my birds every morning. I used to crush the granules before adding, but I have since found that they will eat the individual granules without crushing once they realize that it is a food. If your birds do not eat a soft egg food mixture, you could mix the bee pollen in the same dish with the charcoal, oyster shell and crushed egg shells. You could also place it into an individual feeding cup and just let them eat it free choice. I have never had one “over eat” the bee pollen. The best feature of bee pollen is it is low in calories!
How do I supply a more natural diet in captive birds?
The problem I have is, simply, how do I duplicate a natural diet for my captive birds? I realize that commercial bird foods process their ingredients, sacrificing nutritional integrity for shelf life. I use Bee Pollen to fill the gaps in my bird’s nutritional profile. I believe Bee Pollen supplies my birds with a whole food supplement helping to prevent illness and increase wellness in my birds.
