What is pollen?

Pollen is produced by flowers for the purpose of sexual reproduction to produce fruit or seeds.
Pollen is made up of vitamins (15-20%), carbohydrates (35%), minerals and proteins (20%).

How is it collected?

The pollen is collected from the flowers by the bees. The pollen sticks to the bee which, by means of combs placed on its legs, brushes it in baskets on the hind legs. The pollen balls thus formed are brought back to the hive to feed the bee larvae.

The beekeeper installs a pollen trap at the entrance to the hive that collects a small part of the pollen brought in by the bees. The beekeeper collects it every day and dries it before keeping it cool.
