How do you eat bee pollen?
Pollen is used as a nutritional supplement, an energy booster, as well as to combat allergies from seasonal local pollens. We like to mix our pollen with a spoonful of honey and take a teaspoon every morning. Others like to sprinkle it on their cereal, acai bowls, ice cream, put it in smoothies, in their yogurt or coffee, or just eat it plain. It has a chalky consistency, but the flavor is more herbal. It’s like eating an edible flower. The taste and colors of pollen change throughout the season as the flowers in bloom change. For this reason each jar will vary slightly in color, flavor, and texture.
If you are taking bee pollen for the first time, it’s better to start with only few grains and increase them the following day with some more and so on till you reach the recommended dose of 1 teaspoon per day.
