Using some of the highest ethical standards this Bee Pollen is produced in an Amish area of Pennsylvania. The bees walk over a screen which causes some of the pollen to fall off their legs. Plenty of pollen gets through to support the hive. Bee Pollen is not a bee product like honey which is formed with saliva, pollen adheres to their legs until they return to the hive where it is collected.
This pollen is sifted and dryed (air dryed to 12% moisture at low temperatures, below 105 F, to remove moisture which assures product stability) and does not require refrigeration, keeps incredibly well up to 24 months. Many of our customers who have tried this pollen are very happy with the results.
Some individuals may experience allergic reactions. There is debate as to whether or not this product can be called vegan. Let us know what you think. We are benefiting by the work of the bee.
