Our Bee Bread is totally raw, and never heated or dried. It comes straight out of the hives and into the jars without any steps in between. We believe that bee bread should be as fresh as possible, as freshness ensures product integrity and biological efficacy.
Drying the bee bread is likely to impact its nutritional and therapeutic value and is strictly avoided.
And, there are absolutely no preservatives, additives, artificial ingredients, colorings, stabilizers, anti-caking agents or GMOs in Rosita wild Bee Bread. It’s naturally gluten-free and Paleo friendly.
The Bee Bread is created in the hive through an entirely raw and natural fermentation process by the wild (not farmed) bees. They mix pollen, saliva and honeycomb nectar within cells and seal the cell with a drop of honey, signaling the start of the lactic fermentation process similar to that of yogurt. This breaks down pollen and enables the bees to add naturally occurring enzymes, transforming the pollen into bee bread.
