Courtesy of our friend the industrious little honeybee comes one of nature's most complete foods - SHILOH FARMS Fresh Bee Pollen! Harvested each spring in Chester County, PA, this bright, sweet pollen is frozen at the peak of freshness (in fact, the same day it is collected!) for maximum nutrition. Low moisture (about 4%) and multi-floral (main floral sources include dandelion, wild mustard, black locust, and clover blossoms), our bee pollen has not been heated or dried in any way and is always kept in cold storage. This means that SHILOH FARMS Fresh Bee Pollen is a completely raw product, a living food with all of its naturally-occurring enzymes intact.
What is Bee Pollen:
As honeybees return from a day of foraging, their legs are covered in pollen from the many flowers they've visited. This pollen is chock full of live enzymes, amino acids (about half of pollen's protein is in the form of free amino acids), and other nutrients thought to have a wide range of health benefits, including allergy relief, increased stamina, and general wellness. By using a pollen trap, our beekeepers are able to harvest this pollen, then freeze it the same day it is collected to maintain its nutritional content.
How to Use Bee Pollen:
Each golden granule is densely packed with live enzymes. Your digestive system may not be accustomed to such intensely rich food, so we recommend introducing bee pollen into your diet slowly. First, test for a possible allergic reaction by ingesting just one pellet; then gradually begin adding small amounts of bee pollen to smoothies, cereal, and other cold dishes, until you are consuming about 2 Tbsp. daily.
1. Don't cook with the granules or add powdered granules to anything that requires heat. Heat destroys the live enzymes and reduces the nutrient value.
2. Powder an ounce or two of granules and add cinnamon to taste. Cinnamon adds a delightful spiciness and aroma to the sweetness of pollen.
3. Stir powdered granules into smoothies, protein shakes, juices, or even into water sweetened with raw honey.
4. Add the granules to salad dressings, ketchup, or other sauces.
5. Sprinkle whole granules on toast topped with honey or almond butter.
6. Sprinkle over your cereal, yogurt, or ice cream.
