Bees collect pollen from various flowers for their own feeding needs. The more colorful pollen is the more nutrient it is. It is a natural food very rich in proteins, vitamins, amino-acids, hormones, ferments and is preferred particularly by athletes. It also contains many flavonoids that decrease “bad” cholesterol LDL, while it acts as natural antihistamine. Finally, pollen influences positively the metabolism of water and nutritious substances; it consequently helps to a better control of appetite and body weight, while it promotes the good operation of thyroid gland and genetic glands. Pollen provides higher nutritious value than corresponding quantity of beef, chicken, bread, fruits and tomatoes. It contains ten times more thiamin, niacin and riboflavin than the corresponding weight of beef. The chemical constitution of pollen is 7,5% - 35% protein, 15 - 50% sugars and up to 18% starch, depending on the country of origin and the type of plants from which it emanates.

Pollen is best maintained in a cool place (+5°C) for a year or a frozen one (-15°C) for several years.
There are two ways of preserving pollen. The simplest way is to place it immediately after harvesting and cleaning in the freezer where there is stable and secure preservation (fresh pollen). Another way of preserving the pollen is to dry it. The drying of the pollen must be done after the cleaning and at temperatures ranging from +20°C to +25°C. Dry pollen can be stored in jars in low temperature (4°C). Fresh pollen retains higher biological value and beneficial ingredients than the dried one.
