Why Bee Bread is Healthy


Bee bread is a unique product that includes pollen, honey, and secretions of bees’ salivary glands. Bees make their bread after collecting pollen from various plants and storing them in combs where their natural enzymes loosen the outer walls. The destruction of the exterior walls is called fermentation, rendering the growth of beneficial bacteria.The fermented pollen is now a different product than the pollen itself, called the bee bread. Its nutrients are now more available and more quickly digestible by humans.Due to the growth of Lactobacillus bacteria, bee bread is known as a probiotic food, regulating the human gut system. Therefore, you may support your gut system by consuming bee bread every day. Besides, we can significantly improve our diet by consuming bee pollen daily as it is a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals.

Bee Pollen


Pollen is the male fertilizing agent of flowering plants, trees, grasses, and weeds. Bee pollen, on the other hand, is the dried pellets of pollens. It is widely accepted as the sole “whole food’ in the World due to its rich nutrient content.It is utilized to feed the baby bees and is the source of protein for the worker bees. Besides, it is also a high source of protein together with other macro and micronutrients for humans.


Honey bees collect pollen and nectar from the flowers, bring them to the hives and store them separately.We collect the remaining bee pollen from the special chambers in the hives with proper tools and make it ready for human consumption. Since bees carry pollen from one plant to another, they contribute to the pollination as well. Bees play a vital role in the pollination of crops. About 90% of human foods are obtained from 82 plant species, of which bees pollinate 63 them.


BEE&YOU products are produced by a contracted beekeeping business model to assure the highest quality and traceability from the hive to your table in ISO 22000, ISO 9001, and GMP certified facilities. Our beekeepers save the bee pollens produced from beautiful flowers in the pristine highlands of Anatolia under clean and temperature-controlled conditions and transfer them to our Istanbul facilities. Our experts with agricultural engineering, food engineering, biology, and chemical engineering backgrounds evaluate the safety and quality of bee pollen and test selected parameters at the Laboratories of Center of Excellence in Bee Products of Istanbul Technical University. Following the approval of the quality and food safety specifications, we pack our products on packaging lines automatically in our facilities.
