But what is Bee Pollen?
Bee pollen is a mixture of flower pollen, nectar or honey, and of course the most important part - the Bee's digestive enzymes. Bees fly from flower to flower, collecting pollen, they pack it into little pellets that you can see on the backs of their legs, to carry back to their hives. Our Beekeepers use pollen traps at hive entrances to collect the pollen that falls from the bees legs. The pollen is then naturally air dried, no chemicals are added.
