What is bee pollen and how do you use it?
Sweet and with a mild floral flavor, bee pollen can be used as a supplement or added directly into salads, desserts, or beverages. What Is Bee Pollen? Bee pollen is a mixture of flower pollen, nectar or honey, and bees’ digestive enzymes.
How do I make my own pollen substitute?
I generally start with 2 cups of pollen substitute and 1 cup of sugar. Add water until you get a “thick” consistency. That’s it. You can adjust the ingredient amounts until you get the consistency you desire. You want the mixture to be wet enough to have sufficient moisture but not so liquid that it runs everywhere.

To best utilize pollen patties, an understanding of pollen’s use in the hive is in order. Just as in human diets, bees need a carbohydrate source and a protein source.
