STORAGE & USAGE

Product Storage:

  • Fresh bee pollen: The fresh collected bee pollen contains about 20-30 g water per 100 g. This is a high humidity and it’s an ideal medium for bacteria and yeast. This is why the pollen should be harvested daily and placed directly in the freezer. In two days all pest insects are killed. After the thawing, the bee pollen can be kept only for a few hours.
  • Dried bee pollen is made through a process of drying and purifying. After that the water content would be of 6 g per 100 g pollen. Of course, during these processes there will be losses of vitamins ( pro-vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and β-carotene) and some other important nutrients.
  • Dried pollen stored at room temperature: 12 months
  • Dried pollen packed in vacuum: 24 months
  • Frozen fresh pollen stored in the freezer: 12 months
