Description

This is a listing for 450g (1 lb) of Portuguese bee bread, packaged in a ziplock. Perfect for a couple.

DrApis' pure, artisanal bee bread is produced by worker bees who gather nectar and pollen. While nectar is used to produce honey, the bees' carbohydrates source. Pollen is packed into separate honeycombs and mixed with some nectar and enzymes secreted by bees. After slightly fermenting, it turns into bee bread, also known as perga.
Bee bread is consumed by bees for its high protein, minerals and vitamins content, making up for honey's deficiencies. It can be consumed by vegetarians as a rich protein source. The fermentation process changes the composition and nutritional value of pollen, making it easier to digest and absorb by the organism. It is said to alleviate digestive disorders and pollen allergies. Bee bread is used by athletes for its antioxidant properties. Athletes also believe it boosts performance and accelerates recovery after training.
Bee bread has a fruit-like taste, lingering between sour and sweet. It can be eaten plain or added to yoghurt or breakfast cereals.

# How Portuguese bees make it
DrApis' Bee Bread is made in Alentejo (Southern Portugal) by the local subspecie of honey bees, Apis mellifera iberiensis. These bees work during Spring and Summer, gathering nectar from the annual wildflowers that sprout in Alentejo's dehesa, under cork oaks (Quercus suber) and holm oaks (Quercus ilex).
