Bee Pollen considered as an excellent source of nutrition & energy. Many claims that it can cure multitude of health problems as well. What is bee pollen, benefits of bee pollen, is still known to very few.
What is Bee Pollen
A honeybee collect hundreds, sometimes millions of pollen grain from a single flower. The pollens are packed into granules, using special combs and hairs on their hind legs, and a sticky substance secreted from stomachs. This creation is further carried back, two granules at a time, to their hives that will eventually be fed to their young
On several occasions, beekeepers attaches a small box fitted with a screen in the doorway of a hive. The screen allows the bees to enter, but it carefully and harmlessly removes the small granules of pollen from their legs. Only small amount of such granules are removed from any hive, so as not to deprive the bees from the bulk of their food source.
This is the bee pollen that we considered as an excellent source of nutrition.

How do you take bee pollen
Interested in taking bee pollen for health reasons or in hopes of reducing the effects of seasonal allergies, it is suggestive to proceed with caution. Even if you never had an allergic reaction to pollen or bee products before, you should take bee pollen very slowly and in very small quantities at first.
Anyone who is known to be allergic to honey or bees should definitely not consume bee pollen.
Always use your best judgment when adding something new to your diet. Adults can try adding bee pollen a ¼ teaspoon at a time and should not exceed two teaspoons a day. Children should start with only a few granules and should not exceed a ½ teaspoon a day.
Bee Pollen could be added to your smoothies or yogurt, starting your day with an energy booster.

How to check the quality of bee pollen
The color of bee pollen is not an indicator of quality. It is most likely to be a bright yellow, but red, purple, green, brown, orange and a variety of other colors can also be found. The best bee pollen will be a large variety of colors because that means the bees have been foraging on many different types of flowers and tress (but it is very rare to find)
The best way to tell if your bee pollen is fresh is to sample a few granules. Place the granules on your tongue and they should dissolve slightly. When you bite down the granules, it should mash under the force of your teeth. They definitely should not crunch or be too hard to chew. To describe the taste of bee pollen, it is intense, powdery, floral, a bit chalky, and slightly sweet. The best place to store your bee pollen is in the refrigerator or freezer. Direct sunlight and heat will destroy the nutrient value of the pollen. Bee Pollen stored in a cool dark place should keep for about an year.
