How to Measure Bee Pollen Quality
Article by Tara Mathews
How do you measure bee pollen quality? One of the most important aspects in choosing a good reliable supplier is to make sure you know exactly where it was harvested.
Although this may seem to be difficult, it doesn’t have to be. If the supplier you use does not provide information on where they harvest their pollen then perhaps you should avoid that particular supplier.
We suggest that you should always avoid pollen supplements from China, this is because of the less than perfect conditions that exist in China for producing pure and potent pollen. You see, air borne pollutants cause degradation and even contamination in the pollen supply.
China is one of the most industrialized nations in the world and frankly you just can’t be certain where exactly their pollen is being sourced from. In addition, some of their products that claim to be bee pollen supplements are actually full of many herbal additives and not much pollen at all.
Other high volume producers of pollen products include the United States and Southern Europe. These nations also have high pollution levels in many areas. Thus, it is advisable to avoid much of the pollen products produced in these nations.
Where Can You Find the Best Source?
Let’s face it, many suppliers around the world source their pollen products from New Zealand because it is simply one of the very best sources of quality bee pollen there is.
Why is it one of the best sources available? There are several reasons for this. Remember that air borne pollutants can cause contamination in pollen, well New Zealand has very little pollutants in the air as it is one of the most pristine locations in the world.
In addition, the government policies on pollution control are very strict and the people of New Zealand are also very environmentally conscious as well. Both lead to an excellent area for harvesting the purest pollen available.
Let’s face it, if you are not consuming a nutrient rich natural supplement, why bother taking it in the first place. You would be simply wasting your money.
Another factor to consider when determining bee pollen quality is the method used to process the substance once it has been collected from the beekeeper. If it is heat dried then chances are most of the nutritional content has been destroyed. Freeze drying is a much better method as it helps to keep the nutritional value of the substance.
