Bee pollen is the pollen produced by flowers that honey bees gather and bring back to the hive. These pollen grains are microscopic in size, yet bees collect millions of these individual grains and bind them with nectar into small pellets.
Beekeepers collect the pollen from the bees by placing a collection device at the entrance to the hive. This device gathers between 10% and 50% percent of the pollen that the bees are carrying, leaving plenty of pollen for the hive's needs.
These pollen grains have been carefully dried at the bee hive's natural temperature (below 38 degrees). The pollen is slowly dried to less than 7% moisture to stop natural fermentation and spoilage, for the highest quality, purity and delicious rich flavor.
