Bee Pollen When bees collect nectar for honey, they coat their legs with pollen. The pollen is collected when they pass through a screen while returning to the hive. The screen gently scrapes the pollen off their legs where it drops into a tray for collection. Bee pollen is purported for its healing and energy giving properties. Bee pollen is an excellent source of nutrition. Bee pollen is richer in protein than any flesh-based food. Gram for gram, bee pollen supplements contain more amino acids than fish, beef, or eggs. If you intend to store bee pollen for more than a few weeks after purchase, refrigeration is recommended. 1lb is only $26.35 this month, a 15% discount
