Bee pollen is collected on the legs of honey bees as they pollinate flowers. This pollen, combined with bee secretions, is the primary source of food for honey bee larvae and worker bees. Bee Pollen is known to have a high protein content. The nutrient composition of bee pollen varies depending on the plant the pollen is gathered from. Since honey bees can visit a variety of different plants at any one time, this composition can vary from hour to hour, day to day, week to week. No two samples of bee pollen are exactly identical, but on average bee pollen is extremely nutrient dense and is one of the best natural food sources of vitamins and minerals.
