Bee pollen is plant pollen which has been gathered by the honeybees and enriched with enzymes secreted by their salivary glands.
Bee pollen stored in the comb cells is also called Perga or bee bread. It has undergone a lactic acid fermentation process and can be 100% absorbed by the human body.
It contains many vitamins which in combination with enzymes and microelements increase its healing properties. For its better absorption it is necessary to pass through a milk-acid fermentation.

Bees make HONEY by visiting plants and collecting and transforming the sugary juice called nectar from the blossom. This juice is enriched with secretions of bee’s body which makes the honey a food and a medicine.
The type of honey may differ depending on the nectar source of flowers visited by the honey bees.
ACACIA HONEY – it is a natural remedy that boosts body’s immune system. It is beneficial for insomnia, gastrointestinal, biliary and renal diseases.

“ Crystalized honey lasts for thousands of years” – people say. And there are undeniable testimonials for that. No one could invent a food with such a long sell-by date. But the flying pharmacists made it!
Some time after centrifugation, honey crystallizes. This is a normal process which does not effect on its gustative, nutritive, biological
and curative qualities. When honey becomes saturated solution, it crystallizes. This state of saturation is obtained when the proportion of the total amount of saccharides is above 70% and the water is under 20%. Glucose in honey has the aptitude to crystallize. It is like a crystal embryo. Crystallization is also due to other reasons. Pollen grains, proteins, wax’ pieces, propolis, etc facilitate the process.
Temperature and humidity of the place where honey is stored also influence on this process. Honey in honey-combs crystallizes more difficult or it doesn’t crystallize at all.
We can avoid the process by shock warming and filtering but in this case we will injure the taste of the real honey. We can control this process without changing this wonderful natural product. One of the methods for “controlled” crystallization is the daily stirring of the fresh liquid honey until its crystallization. This way we obtain a creamy mass /with very small crystals/ which tastes very nice, it’s healthy and can be spread.
In the world creamy honey is much more preferred than the liquid one!
