ABOUT: The old Egyptians describe it as a “life-giving dust”, the grains of flower pollen collected by honeybees from a diversity of plants. Pollen grains, depending on the plant species, differ in shape, colour, size and weight. Each little pollen ball is unique and contains the plant’s genetic material with all the characteristics and nutritional value of that particular flower that bees visited.
Minor differences in taste or appearance (colour, pollen granule size) from one pot to another, shows that our raw bee pollen has all been handled with care, manually and not using technological aids so you might even find some bits of flowers, nothing to worry, it’s only Nature!
WHO IS IT FOR? It’s food! For everyone!
Great from 1 year of age and up, start with one single granule and then build up according to tolerance and age.
Recommended dose for adults:
Please ensure you are well hydrated before taking any RAW bee product.
If new to raw bee pollen, start with one single granule and daily build up your intake until you reach to 1-2 teaspoons a day or more. Could be taken all at once or spread up, preferably in the first part of the day, morning or afternoon.

SUGGESTIONS: Best taken first part of the day, raw bee pollen is very versatile, sprinkled onto yogurts, cereals, icecreams, topped on or blended into smoothies or juices, water, salads or simply on its own. Always choose cold, room temperature foods as its nutrients are very sensitive to heat.
For apitherapy use, mix it in RAWyal Honey and optionally, depending on health needs add either raw fresh royal jelly or raw propolis.
SKIN: Anti-aging exfoliating mask: due to its high enzymatic capacity, it has a gentle exfoliating effect.
Make a paste by mixing 1/2 tsp raw bee pollen with 1/2 RAWyal Honey and apply on the skin. Leave it on for 20-30 min and then rinse it off with warm water.
STORAGE: Store in the freezer between -15 -20 degrees C
Raw bee pollen does not get frozen, it can be consumed straight from the freezer, the granules are still soft and very flavourful. Alternatively, refrigerate a portion, enough for a 3-day supply and consume it from the fridge within 3 days if more convenient!
Because it’s 100% raw, fresh, living food, unprocessed – just as found in the beehive and containing an array of friendly bacterial cultures, enzymes and co-enzymes necessary to support all body functions and that only resist at freezer temperature!
