Our Pollen

Pollen is the natural food of bees and provides most of the nutrients bees require for growth and health.  Honey provides very little nutrition, except carbohydrates which are essential for heat and movement.  Pollen supplies all the rest, and bees cannot live long or raise brood for long without pollen.

Ingredients like properly selected brewers yeast and soy flours (but not all kinds) can come quite close to the bees needs for amino acids (protein), but adding natural pollen improves the diet considerably particularly when  bees are not able to forage for pollen and also increases the rate of patty consumption.  If the bees can get some natural pollen outside the hive, then supplements alone can be sufficient.

We make patties with various percentages of pollen, as well as straight supplement, and although most people request pollen, yeast, soy & sugar, we can make patties with any ingredients you request, including BeePro, MegaBee, FeedBee or other ingredients like egg or casein.  (See note).

Global purchases bee pollen separately in each country.

  • We buy U.S. pollen from U.S. suppliers for U.S. production at Butte, Montana.
    In the U.S., only U.S. produced pollen is permitted for use in bee feed.

  • We buy from various sources for Canadian production at Airdrie, Alberta
    In Canada, imported pollen is permissible, and Canadian pollen is hard to find.

  • In each country, some beekeepers supply their own.

If you produce pollen for sale in Canada or the USA,
please call us to discuss our needs.

All pollen used by Global is irradiated at doses recommended by government labs to ensure freedom from AFB, chalkbrood, viruses and other bee diseases and certified.

The electron beam process we use is like radio waves or light
and does not leave any residue, or have any harmful effects.

BeePro, MegaBee, FeedBee are trademarks of their respective manufacturers.  Global is not related to any of the above firms, but will purchase and use their products if requested by customers.
