The term pollen comes from the Latin "pollen" which means "flower of flour". It is composed of microscopic granules contained in the flowers. This prodigious "powder" is an indispensable food for the reproduction of bees.
the bees collect pollen from flowers and transport it to the beehive where it’s stored and used as nutriction for the colony
bee pollen it’s loaded with nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, lipids, carbohydrates and many active substances.
the health effects of bee pollen comes from many examinations
Here is different health benefits of bee pollen:
- bee pollen is loaded with a large variety of antioxidants
- can reduce risk factors for heart disease such as high blood lipids and cholesterol;
- can increase liver function and protect the liver from toxic substances;
- can help you avoid the disease by increasing immunity and killing bacteria;
An important phase in the processing of our pollen is drying or dehumidification, this to avoid alterations of the product over time, guaranteeing the end consumer a safe product. Our pollen is cold dehumidified, ie at low temperatures. The heat-based treatments to dry the pollen in fact determine chemical and microbiological variations. With the dehumidification process at low temperatures, vitamins and amino acids that are sensitive to heat are preserved

THE CONSORTIUM FOR THE SAFEGUARDING OF THE P.D.O. OF LUNIGIANA HONEY Tuscany, Italy
The consortium for the safeguarding of the Protected Designation of Origin (P.D.O.) of Lunigiana honey, was originally constituted in voluntary form by the honey producers of the 14 villages of the mountain community of Lunigiana (art. 1 of the Statutes of the ‘Consortium for the safeguarding of the P.D.O. of Lunigiana honey’)
In September 2004, the European Community granted official P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin) recognition to the Chestnut and Acacia honeys produced and packed in Lunigiana, an area in Northern Tuscany. This was the first P.D.O. honey in Italy. The P.D.O. recognition certifies the geographical origin of a product, whose characteristics and quality are mainly or exclusively a result of the geographical environment, including both natural and human factors, and which is produced, processed and prepared in a specific geographical area. The area of Lunigiana is particularly suitable for apiculture, since the low level of anthropic transformation and extremely limited industrial development have preserved its natural elements. The remarkable number of acacia and chestnut trees allow the production of the corresponding types of honey at a particularly high level of purity. Their characteristics are furthermore enhanced by the use of traditional methods of extraction, processing and bottling, as required by the strict regulations of P.D.O. products.
The consortium for the safeguarding of the P.D.O. of Lunigiana honey has entrusted the Il Pungiglione non-profit social cooperative with the processing and packaging of all the P.D.O. honey of Lunigiana. The Il Pungiglione cooperative aims at the social rehabilitation and work insertion of marginalised people and helps increase their chances of finding a job and a place in society.
In conclusion, it can be said that Lunigiana honey deserves to be recognised at an institutional level for the following reasons and characteristics:
1. Uniformity of the geographical area, which allows the constant production of a uniform product.
2. An intact natural environment, unspoiled by industrialisation or pollution, thus guaranteeing a healthy final product.
3. Clear indicators of typicality, highlighted by the Institute of Agricultural Entomology of Perugia, which regard Lunigiana honey as being unique at a national level.
4. The spread in high quality apicultural knowledge and culture at an international level.
