Italian Bee Pollen 🐝

Thanks to our hives scattered in different strategic points of the Trieste Karst, we produce different varieties of Raw whole Honey, Bee Pollen and Propolis.

 

The line of products from the Beehive was born from the desire born in 2010 to also become beekeepers.

 

By tasting the products it will be possible to savor the passion and tradition that accompanies the VonDerWeid company, combined with the unmistakable taste of the Triestine Karst.

 

They enclose the Pollen

The  pollen or pollen grain is the set of microgametophytes produced, in the angiosperms, in the Anthers.

Each single granule is a haploid cell surrounded by two walls: an external one, of a lipidic nature and very resistant to external agents, called exine , and a more internal one, of cellulosic origin , called intina .

Foraging Bees

The foraging bees , “visiting” the flowers surrounding the hive in search of nectar, collect the pollen and then group it in the form of small grainy balls , with an external shell.


Bee's Baskets

The balls of pollen stick to the paws rear of bees, thanks to baskets which perform the function of small bags or pockets .

Transportation

The pollen is collected and transported to the hive by these industrious insects to provide food to the colony; in fact, it represents the raw material used by nurse bees to produce royal jelly intended for feeding the larvae and the queen bee .


Collection/b>

Generally collecting pollen exceeds the actual needs of the hive inhabitants, so beekeepers have devised an ingenious method to collect it directly from foraging bees .

In essence, these are perforated screens (similar to grids) through which the bees, returning from the surrounding environment, must pass to enter the hive; the holes are large enough to “ scratch away ” by retaining the pollen on their surface.

The different plant species produce pollen for reproductive purposes , in special structures of the flower called anthers : the pollen in fact represents the male gametes of the plant which, joining the female ovules contained in the ovary, give rise to the seeds.

 

Pollen can in some cases be light and impalpable , therefore transportable by the wind, while other types of pollen are more voluminous and heavier , as well as definitely sticky, and must be carried by pollinating insects or by birds that visit the flowers.

Its weight and characteristics therefore depend directly on the flowers in which the foraging bees go to look for pollen .

Bee Pollen

From our bees , Bee Pollen : a complete food with a myriad of benefits .

Usage
  • The pollen is a fine, sticky dust that forms matter fertilizing the flowers . Every single pollen grain contains all the elements necessary for life:  proteins, vitamins, amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, enzymes, mineral salts and hormones , present in different proportions based on the flower from which they originate.
