Description

Organic Bee Pollen is a nutritious addition to whole food recipes.

Organic bee pollen is simply grains of nutrient rich pollen which bees collect from organic flowers.  Bee keepers only collect a small amount of pollen, leaving the bees enough to thrive and produce honey.

It is special product rich in nutrients, antioxidants and enzymes.  Bee pollen contains all the essential amino acids which makes it a complete protein. It can be sprinkled onto porridge, yoghurt or added to smoothies.

If you want a quick easy recipe to get started with bee pollen then chop a range of fruits in a bowl and cover with coconut yoghurt.  Sprinkle nuts, seeds and bee pollen on top for a super nutritious snack or meal replacement.
