Bee bread – Lacto-fermented and enzyme-rich dietary supplement
Rosita Bee Bread is lacto-fermented, hive-stored pollen that’s rich in enzymes and natural nutrients, and supports digestion and the immune system, among myriad other health benefits.* This wild and raw superfood is made by giant rock bees (Apis dorsata) from the lush, green tropical forests and Himalayan foothills of India.
The Bee Bread is created in the hive through an entirely raw and natural fermentation process by the wild (not farmed) bees. They mix pollen, saliva and honeycomb nectar within cells and seal the cell with a drop of honey, signaling the start of the lactic fermentation process similar to that of yogurt. This breaks down pollen and enables the bees to add naturally occurring enzymes, transforming the pollen into bee bread.
The measures taken to harvest the bee bread are precious, ancient and sustainable.* Honey hunters bravely climb up tall trees using hand-made ladders to the wild beehives. Then, the bee bread is gently extracted from the honeycomb using a completely natural method that protects its rich nutrients. From there, it goes straight into the bottle, with absolutely no processing or additives.
Bee bread has a pleasant fruit-like aroma and slightly tangy taste, with citrus and fruit flavors. It dissolves easily in the mouth, or you can chew it before you enjoy your breakfast.
Naturally-occurring nutrients in bee bread include, but are not limited to:
- Essential amino acids
- Omega fatty acids
- Organic acids
The bees’ specialized fermentation process also generates probiotics, which may help support a healthy digestive system.*
How it’s made
Our Bee Bread is totally raw, and never heated or dried. It comes straight out of the hives and into the jars without any steps in between. We believe that bee bread should be as fresh as possible, as freshness ensures product integrity and biological efficacy.
Drying the bee bread is likely to impact its nutritional and therapeutic value and is strictly avoided.
And, there are absolutely no preservatives, additives, artificial ingredients, colorings, stabilizers, anti-caking agents or GMOs in Rosita wild Bee Bread. It’s naturally gluten-free and Paleo friendly.
Wild bee bread versus domesticated bee bread
Rosita bee bread is derived from wild bee hives and wild bees that cannot be domesticated, and is free of human intervention. This means that the wax, honey and bee bread are free from medicinal residues often used to maintain domestic hives and prevent bee diseases.
Commercially-farmed bees are commonly treated with antibiotics, suffer stress, eat synthetic food instead of their own honey and bee bread, and are forced to fly in fields sprayed with pesticides. All this destroys the bees’ healthy bacteria, which is their defense against disease. And therefore, the honey and bee bread from commercial bees are lacking in quality.*
Wild bees that nest high up in trees and cliffs don’t suffer from any of these problems. On the contrary, their honey stomachs are full of friendly bacteria and the honey and bee bread they produce are of superior quality — teeming with friendly bacteria, antioxidants and phytochemicals.*
Bee bread has also been traditionally called “ambrosia’ (food of the gods) and “perga.” Since ancient times, bee bread has been used by various cultures for its nutritional and health-supporting properties.*
It involves a great deal of work to procure this extremely rare and nutritious food, which is likely one of man’s earliest foods.
