Our Bee Pollen comes from the pristine forests of the South Island of New Zealand. It is then processed with great care to ensure the quality of vital nutrients and the natural balance of the bee hives.
Bee pollen is nature's own answer to increase your energy, vitality and physical stamina. It boosts the body's immune function to help fight off any illness. Bee Pollen is a highly bioavailable source of proteins and carbohydrates for energy, vitamins and minerals for immunity, and enzymes, omegas and amino-acids for hormonal balance.
Use 1-2 tablespoons per day. Add a tablespoon to your favourite smoothie; sprinkle over breakfast cereal, porridge, oats, granola or yoghurt. You can also add to bliss balls, energy bars, or mix with raw certified organic ethically sourced honey (not the stuff from the supermarket) to use as a delicious spread. See our Recipes tab for more ideas.
Always use bee pollen raw, it will lose its beneficial vitamins and minerals if heated. To maximise the bioavailability of Bee Pollen, you can soak the granules overnight before eating them. This helps release the bee pollen nutrients from their surrounding shell so they are more easily absorbed and used by the body where they are most needed.
Note: Bee Pollen can cause severe allergic reaction, and is not suitable for those with allergies to bee products. If you are an allergy sufferer or an asthmatic seek medical advice before using pollen.
Organic Raw Bee Pollen from the South Island of New Zealand
Note: We have gone to great lengths to ensure that our Bee Pollen is 100% ethically and sustainably sourced. As it is collected by another animal (bees), there does exist the very real possibility of human-abuse of those animals. However we are also cognizant that bee populations globally have been declining, and the bee keeping industry is vital in increasing those populations. We choose to only source ethically produced bee pollen from small scale organic New Zealand based bee keepers. For more information, we recommend viewing this documentary: Vanishing of the Bees. Please contact us if you have any questions on this topic, we'd love to hear from you.

Not only do they draw their inspiration from their South Island community, they also often draw their ingredients from this area too and, when products are not able to be locally sourced, are only acquired from the highest standard international organic farmers.

"One of my favourite spreads is Almond, Brazil and Cashew Butter. I love that it has a slightly less ‘almondy’ taste than plain almond butter, but is just as creamy, delicious and packed with nutrition. "
- Niki O'Neil (Australia)
"This ABC Butter is my absolute favourite of nut butter flavour combinations. It has the richness and delicious flavour of almonds, but is balanced and softened by the mild creaminess of brazil nuts and cashews. The blend also means you get a much broader nutritional bang for your buck than plain almond butter, with additional selenium and magnesium from the brazil nuts and iron from the cashews."
- Buffy Ellen, founder of begoodorganics.com (Auckland, New Zealand)
