What is bee bread

In this article, we want to talk about such a unique beekeeping product as bee bread. Perga is a flower pollen, which bees collect from flowers, bring it to the hive, put it in honeycomb cells, compact these honeycombs, supply this pollen with their enzymes, fill it with honey and seal it. In a sealed comb, the process of fermented milk fermentation of this product takes place, and literally two weeks later, bee bread is obtained. This is a very useful product. It is five times more valuable than the pollen itself.

What is bee bread for?

Bees use it to feed their brood. It is very important to know that this bee product is a very valuable and very active food for bees. Eating its larvae literally in three days increase their mass by one and a half thousand times. Of course, the composition in bee bread is not uniform, since pollen is collected from different plants. Nevertheless, several types of enzymes, acids, vitamins and microelements are secreted, which are always present in it. These are monosaccharides, amino acids and fatty acids, vitamins of various groups. Almost the entire group of b vitamins, organic acids, hormone-like substances, enzymes. From this list, the high content of vitamin E and carotenoids should be highlighted. Also potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, cobalt, zinc. A very important product for humans is fatty acids such as omega-3.

Compared to ordinary pollen, bee bread is much more valuable and more saturated with vitamins. Although pollen during collection contains many of these useful substances, but then, when it dries, these many named useful substances are partially lost. In bee bread, all this is preserved due to the preserving properties of honey.

Why bee bread is useful for the human body

How bee bread is obtained and stored

It is certainly not easy to get this product. Nevertheless, there are several ways. One of the simplest ways to get bee bread is directly from honeycombs. These honeycombs are ground, mixed with honey and thus consumed. A more technologically advanced way is to freeze honeycombs with bee bread. The frozen honeycomb is mechanically interrupted, as a result of which the wax is exfoliated and sieved, and in the remainder, hexagonal beech granules are obtained.

There is an opinion that when freezing, honeycombs lose a certain amount of nutrients. We would like to note that bees hibernate in hives, and honeycombs are also in the hive in winter. They freeze in exactly the same way, especially in northern latitudes. And nevertheless, nothing disappears in them, and in the spring the bees feed the brood very well, grow a new generation of honey plants.
