Bee Pollen is the dust-size male seed found on the stamen of any flower blossom. The pollen collects on the legs of honeybees as they move from flower to flower. The bees secrete a number of enzymes into the pollen.It is the main source of food for most honey bees and their larvae. Bee bread consists of honey and pollens which are gathered by the worker bees. A recent study of bee bread showed it contain 188 kinds of fungi and 29 kinds of bacteria. Bee bread is sometimes referred to as ambrosia. It is fed to all larvae except those that are destined to become queens; the queen larvae are fed royal jelly instead. Bee pollen is not found in the everyday diet. It is used in nutritional supplements and Traditional Herbal Products.
I hope this information will be useful for you guys.

! Well 4 months later, I'm still researching GCC information like an Obsessed Bird Crazy Momma! LOL...
I came across an "Avian Natural Ingredients" List and I thought of this forum when Bee Pollen was on the list! It said:
"Bee Pollen contains 35% Protein, 55% Carbohydrate, 2% Fatty Acids, 3% Minerals and Vitamins. High in B-Complex Vitamins A, C, D and E. Also contains Lecithin, Beta Carotene and Selenium. It is rich in vitamins and contains almost all known minerals, trace elements, enzymes and amino acids. It contains the essence of every plant from which bees collect pollen in combination with digestive enzymes from the bees. This combination of elements make bee pollen an excellent source of antioxidants. Bee pollen is rapidly absorbed into the blood stream and stimulates immunological responses"
I mentioned early, we are big fans of Bee Pollen for humans & avians alike!
I got a really good list of Natural's! I will post it in Bird Board Discussion!
Have a bird'tastic weekend!
Hope this helps!
