Bee pollen is considered one of nature’s most nourishing foods! With more protein per gram than any animal product and packed with B-vitamins, and all 22 known essential nutritional elements, it is a favorite among those leading an on-the-go lifestyle or anyone that is looking for an all natural energy and vitamin boost. You can add to smoothies, toast, yogurt, salads, or any of your favorite everyday foods.
First, you must note that when taking bee pollen, just like any other bee products, you must proceed with caution due to an effect it can have on people who are allergic to bee products. Adults can try adding bee pollen a ¼ teaspoon at a time and can increase their daily intake to two tablespoons a day. Children can eat bee pollen, too, and should start with only a few granules.
It's important to note that taste is relative - what tastes one way to one person, might taste another way to someone else. My personal taste of bee pollen is powdery, floral, and slightly bitter but sweet.
The best place to store your bee pollen is in the refrigerator or freezer, or in a cool, dark place like a pantry. Keep it away from UV radiation (i.e. sunlight) as heat will diminish the nutritional value of pollen. When stored properly, it can keep for about three years.
Now that you know all of its great benefits, it's good to know how to use it in your daily diet.
