Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen and Bread

Royal Jelly

Royal Jelly [1] is a by nurse bees produced voedersap with a special composition. King Adrienne Jelly consists of high-fat and protein-rich secretions of the voedersapklieren , and has a higher sugar content and a composition other than the vitamin feed juices for the other bees and larvae.

Royal jelly is in enormous quantities both fed to already mature queens as to prospective queens (ie the larvae into swarm cells ). Both queens and queen larvae get no other food.

The main components (average values) of royal jelly are:

  • 60-70% of water
  • 9-18% proteins (Apisimin, Apalbumin, Royalisin, peptide, amino acids)
  • 11-25% sugar (3-13% Fructose, Glucose 4-8%]], 0.5-2.0% Sucrose)
  • 2-8% fats
  • 1-6% from the 10-hydroxydecanoïnezuur Mandibelklieren.
  • Vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, pyridoxine, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, folic acid)
  • Sterine
  • Gamma globulin
  • Biopterin (= biomolecule) and neopterin
  • Minerals and trace elements (0.8-3.0% ash)

The pH value of royal jelly from 3.4 to 4.5

Both a queen and a worker bee comes from a fertilized egg. It further is no difference. Especially by the royal jelly (and intensive care that really creates an excessive amount of royal jelly) is a larva queen instead of a "normal" worker bee . In case of emergency can be a worker bee larva intended to be a queen (see redcel ).

In english is called royal jelly -like this game ready for the consumer - "Royal Jelly," in french "Royal Jelly" and in German "Weiselfuttersaft.

Royal Jelly is also sold for human consumption as vitalizing food, and there are included the following health characteristics attributed to:

  • Antimicrobial,
  • Inhibiting cancer cell,
  • Effects on blood pressure and diabetes,
  • Increase in cell division and celvitaliteit times.


Bee Pollen is a product that is made ​​by bees. Pollen is English for pollen. The pollen is extracted by bees from flowers. It is thus not only nectar, but also pollen collected by bees. The bees take the pollen to their nest. A worker bee edit and mix it with pollen collected nectar. This causes pollen grains: bee pollen. Bees use the pollen worked as a rich food source of protein, fats and vitamins.

Bee bread

The bees collect pollen in pollinia and not directly consumed pollen they store in cells (this can sometimes entire windows only pollen go). It is good to realize that this is actually going to pollen (to obtain a pollen nugget) wetted with nectar (which also good bacteria sit).

It says "wet" pollen undergoes herein a fermentation which occurs in about 2 weeks time the so-called bee bread. Probably at this fermentation especially the "good bacteria" in question [1] . This bee bread digestibility and increases the nutritional value of the pollen remains longer in position than loose pollen.

The bee bread is eaten by young bees to vetlichaampjes and voedersapklieren build and eiwitvetlichaam.

If there is a shortage of bee bread, the attendants can about one week to eat into their vetlichaampjes. Then, eggs and young larvae cannibalized to meet the queen and the brood of other protein.
