sweet ambrosia

Bee pollen is a product made by honeybees that consists of honey or plant nectar and collected pollen. Because this substance contains vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and a significant amount of protein, bee pollen is sometimes referred to as the ambrosia of the botanical world. Some of the benefits of bee pollen include working as an antioxidant and reducing inflammation. When looking to buy bee pollen granules and powder in bulk, we offer bee pollen by the quarter pound or pound.

granules: What are Bee Pollen Granules?

Plant nectar and collected pollen
The golden grains collected by honeybees contain the male reproductive cells of flowering plants. To this material, each bee contributes its own digestive enzymes to help the pollen adhere to the tiny collection “baskets” on their rear legs as they forage. This activity is not only vital to ensure the propagation of a variety of plants, but provides the sole food source for honeybees that is engineered to safeguard the health of the hive.

How to consume bee pollen granules?

You can add bee pollen granules to smoothies, or incorporate bee pollen granules into raw protein bar—or raw dessert—recipes. You can also add bee pollen granules as a topping on yogurts or cereal.Additionally bee pollen granules you can mix them into salad dressings, or as a coating for popcorn, or stirred into vegetable juices.

granules: A Super Superfood

Why eat bee pollen granules?
Bee pollen is a unique and chemically diverse substance with no two samples being exactly alike, even when taken from the same hive. On average, however, all bee pollen is abundantly rich in protein, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. As such, it is also known as “bee bread,” “ambrosia” and, to the ancient Romans and Greeks, as “life-giving dust.” With a nutritional profile that includes every nutrient necessary to maintain life and good health for humans as well as honeybees, it’s no wonder bee pollen is touted as a “super food.” Indeed, it is food fit for a queen!

Bee pollen granules nutrition facts
A chemical analysis of bee pollen is impressive. This amazing substance contains all 22 essential amino acids and all 28 minerals required by the human body. Bee pollen also contains up to 35% protein, most of which is in the form of free amino acids. It is also rich in fatty acids, nearly a dozen enzymes and coenzymes and vitamins A, B, C, D, E, H (biotin) and K.

  • v½ teaspoon paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

granules: Allergy & Health Information

What is bee pollen good for?

Many consider bee pollen a superfood. It supports the immune system, works as an antioxidant, and may help lower inflammation. It also promotes liver health and more. It’s packed with nutrition! Bee pollen contains high levels of amino acids, essential fatty acids, minerals, antioxidants and more protein than meat or eggs. Sprinkle over hot cereals, yogurt, salads and soups, or blend in smoothies and salad dressings.

Bee pollen and allergies
Bee pollen should not be confused with wind-blown pollen that triggers seasonal allergies. The latter type of pollen is lighter in weight and contains anemophile pollen grains, which honeybees pass over in favor of entomophile pollen grains because of their superior nutritional value. This is a remarkable feat considering they have to choose the preferred pollen from millions of grains present in any particular flower.

Speaking of allergy… though we recommend you consult with your health practitioner, it is highly unlikely that you will experience an allergic reaction from consuming bee products just because you are allergic to bee venom. In addition, the presence of the flavonoid quercetin in bee pollen, which helps inhibit the release of histamine, may reduce symptoms of seasonal allergies. However, caution may be warranted if you are allergic to the pollen of plants in the ragweed family, for example, or other flowering plants that honeybees frequently visit. Note that plant diversity, and therefore pollen content, is governed by the region in which each hive resides.
