What is it?
What are its nutritional content and health benefits?
Even nutritionists agree: organic bee pollen contains nearly all the nutrients required by humans making it one of nature’s most nourishing foods. Some even said we could live on pure, raw bee pollen alone.
Helps build cells, bones, organs and skin. Just a teaspoon of bee pollen contains more than 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen granules which are densely packed with nutrients. It contains more protein and at least 20 amino acids than any animal source. These proteins are in a form which the body can use readily to help maintain and build muscle and every cell in our bodies.
Helps lose weight. Bee pollen has the capacity to stimulate the body’s metabolic processes by speeding up caloric burn. It contains lecithin (15% lecithin by volume) which is a substance that flushes out fats from the body. Aside from lecithin, bee pollen also contains phenylalanine, a natural appetite suppressant.
Bee pollens contain 55% carbohydrates, 30% protein, approximately 5% of Vitamin C, about 100 enzymes, niacin, riboflavin, iron, zinc, bioflavonoids, fatty acids and Vitamin B12.
What makes our bee pollen different?
If you have encountered sterilized or irradiated bee pollens, it is a sign that its complex compositions, which cannot be synthesized even in laboratories, have already been destroyed.But that’s not how we process our pollens.
After collection, the pollens are immediately transported to our processing center. Here, they undergo a special heating process to remove moisture. This is to ensure that the pollens would have a longer shelf life. We make sure the temperature doesn’t go beyond 45ºC to avoid diminishing its nutritional value.
We pass the pollen in several sieves with different sizes to make sure it’s free of any foreign particle. The pollens are then carefully inspected by qualified staff using very high and strict standards. How meticulous are we? We allocate an identification number for every lot and bee-keeper. This way, the origin of pollen can easily be traced and effectively evaluated.Our product is pure, unadulterated bee pollen without any sugar, preservatives, food colour and additives. It is also certified organic. We have soil certification and the approval of EU organic certification bodies to back up this claim. This way, you can be sure our bee pollen is not tainted with pesticides, sulfite, and other preservatives.
