Luisa's Fresh Organic Chestnut Bee Pollen: Luisa's bees collect the nutritious pollen from within the wild forests of Asturias - a green and unspoilt area in the North of Spain. Bee pollen contains a wide variety of long-chain fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements as well as enzymes from the bees themselves. Fresh pollen has more available nutrients than dried pollen, and because it isn't hardened from being dried, the body can more readily absorb the natural goodness without needing to be reconstituted.

On the flavour: This pollen has a slight bitterness to it along with a beautiful floral flavour with deep earthy notes.

Who produces this pollen? Luisa and her daughter Olaya, head up this raw honey operation, taking care of the bees harvesting the honey and manging the business. Their Fresh Organic Chestnut Bee Pollen is particularly good, demonstrating their commitment to the purity and quality of their products. 

 

Where is this pollen from?: Located in Asturias, Spain, their bees forage in lush remote forests and on wild mountains, producing some of the finest honeys we have found!

Common uses: Pollen has been used throughout the ages as a source of food and nourishment. It can be used as a topping for yoghurt or cereal, blended into smoothies, mixed into salad dressings and many other uses so long as it is not heated, which would damage some of the nutrients.

Pollen facts: Long ago, the Greeks and Romans called natural bee pollen "the life-giving dust" or the secret "ambrosia", which was eaten to acquire eternal youth. Pollen was entombed with pharaohs, used by the American Indians, and for centuries by tribes in China. Bees have pollen sacks, which they collect the pollen in to take back to the hive. The brood needs a lot of protein to aid its growth, and so for short periods of time the beekeepers harvest the pollen by placing small brushes at the entrance of the hive. This brushes off the pollen grains, which are collected, and the bees are then left to collect without further interference.

Important notices:

Allergies:

If you are affected by hay fever, then bee pollen can cause an allergic reaction. If you are in any doubt it is advisable to take just a few grains initially and then wait to see if you get a reaction. If you don't, gradually increase the dosage until you are sure it is not negatively affecting you.

Transit:

Fresh and Frozen items are sent in insulated boxes with an ice pack to keep them cool.  While in transit, the items may defrost.  This is normal and will not harm the quality of the items.  Fresh items are safe to remain in transit for up to one week and can be used as normal once received.

As soon as you receive it, be sure to put it either into the fridge for immediate use or the freezer for later use.

International Orders:

Please note that we do not guarantee timely shipment of fresh frozen goods to addresses outside the UK. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee quick enough delivery for further away locations, and the frozen items could be damaged with the longer shipping times. 

Returns:

Due to its perishable nature, this product is not eligible for returns unless faulty.
