It can sound unusual to add pollen to your diet, as it is often unheard of compared to honey. However, it is a completely natural byproduct of the insect that is packed with nutritious value. The first thing to think about before purchasing is where exactly it comes from. A plant’s anthers produce pollen, which is then collected by the bees. This then mixes with a secretion of nectar and carried to the hive where it is placed inside the honeycomb cells.
To harvest the pollen, beekeepers will place traps on the hives. As the insects return, they are forced to go through these traps, which will take part of the pollen and often leads to the insects returning to the flowers to collect more. This will quickly add up to many granules which will be sold through health food stores to customers. You will then be able to purchase the granules and add them into your daily diet.
