Over the summer I have been collecting bee pollen from one of my hives that has a pollen trap. There is not much on the how to's to do this so I have asked other beekeepers for tips.
The health benefits for bee pollen are incredible, as well as bee pollen containing vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids, and protein. It comes from the pollen that collects on the bodies of bees. However, I found out why it is hard to find and expensive too! The two jars I have harvested in the picture to the right took me an hour of painstaking picking and cleaning through the pollen! The bees also deposit all kinds of other things in there too!
