What is Bee Pollen?

What is Bee Pollen?

What is Bee Pollen? That’s a pretty common question and knowing what it is should naturally start with how it’s made. This miracle of nature is made when honeybees land on the flowers and scrape off all of the loose pollen with their legs and their jaws. Then, they comb that pollen down, turning it into a mixture of saliva, pollen, and nectar. Then they pack the mixture into the pole cells that surround the brood nest in order to make their food. The bees also add certain enzymes for altering the pollen to protect it from deterioration. Following that part of the process, they digest the pollen, turning it into honey.
