Royal jelly, which is secreted from the salivary glands of worker bees, serves as food for all young larvae and as the only food for larvae that will develop into queen bees. Like bee pollen, it has been falsely claimed to be especially nutritious, to provide buoyant energy, and to have therapeutic properties
The Queen Bee is about 45% longer and 60% heavier than the normal worker bee. She can lay up to 2000 eggs a day in the peak of the season which all together weigh approximately 2 ?times her own body weight. The Queen only leaves her hive to mate in the air or to leave with a swarm. The Queen can live up to 6 years but in most cases, she becomes nonproductive by the 4th year and the workers then replace her by producing a new queen. Most beekeepers , however, replace the queen by the 3rd year or sooner to keep the hive strong.
Royal Jelly is offered in one of two ways. It is offered in its pure natural state that is like a thick milky substance. This form is very unstable and must be kept frozen or refrigerated in order to preserve it. Because of the instability of this form we do not offer it to our customers.
The second form of Royal Jelly is an extract (powder or liquid form) . The powder extract is by far the most popular and is what capsules contain. There are two methods of achieving a powdered extract, (1) Freeze-dried or (2) Spray-dried. Freeze-drying the Royal Jelly cost more to manufacture but it is also the best way because no food preservatives have to be added. Freeze Drying the Royal Jelly removes all the moisture content and contrary to what some Royal Jelly providers say, NO nutritional value is lost in this process.
