Harvested in the rugged and mountainous Galician region of northwest Spain, this pollen has a sweet taste with a soft crunch. Nearly all of the hives are located 2200 feet above sea level where the bees visit plants such as oak, heather, sweet chestnut, rockrose, heather, and others.
The beekeepers exclusively keep a unique subspecies of honey bee known as the Spanish Black Honey Bee (Apis mellifera iberiensis). At set times during the season, the beekeepers briefly place pollen traps on the hive to collect pollen for GloryBee while leaving enough for the bees to survive and prosper over winter. We've been working with these beekeepers for two years, and we're confident that they treat their bees with love and respect.
This bee pollen is dried gently using the sun so that it maintains all of the natural enzymes you expect. Made up of approximately 30% proteins, and 55% carbohydrates, this bee pollen contains vitamins like A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 B12, C, D, E, Folic Acid & Rutin. In addition, it contains 14 fatty acids, and 18 protein/amino acids.
