Bee bread – Lacto-fermented and enzyme-rich dietary supplement

Rosita Bee Bread is lacto-fermented, hive-stored pollen that’s rich in enzymes and natural nutrients, and supports digestion and the immune system, among myriad other health benefits.* This wild and raw superfood is made by giant rock bees (Apis dorsata) from the lush, green tropical forests and Himalayan foothills of India.

The Bee Bread is created in the hive through an entirely raw and natural fermentation process by the wild (not farmed) bees. They mix pollen, saliva and honeycomb nectar within cells and seal the cell with a drop of honey, signaling the start of the lactic fermentation process similar to that of yogurt. This breaks down pollen and enables the bees to add naturally occurring enzymes, transforming the pollen into bee bread. 

The measures taken to harvest the bee bread are precious, ancient and sustainable.* Honey hunters bravely climb up tall trees using hand-made ladders to the wild beehives. Then, the bee bread is gently extracted from the honeycomb using a completely natural method that protects its rich nutrients. From there, it goes straight into the bottle, with absolutely no processing or additives. 

Bee bread has a pleasant fruit-like aroma and slightly tangy taste, with citrus and fruit flavors. It dissolves easily in the mouth, or you can chew it before you enjoy your breakfast.

Naturally-occurring nutrients in bee bread include, but are not limited to:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential amino acids
  • Enzymes
  • Omega fatty acids
  • Carbohydrates
  • Organic acids
  • Prebiotics
  • Probiotics
  • Phytochemicals*

The bees’ specialized fermentation process also generates probiotics, which may help support a healthy digestive system.*

How it’s made 

Our Bee Bread is totally raw, and never heated or dried. It comes straight out of the hives and into the jars without any steps in between. We believe that bee bread should be as fresh as possible, as freshness ensures product integrity and biological efficacy.

Drying the bee bread is likely to impact its nutritional and therapeutic value and is strictly avoided.

And, there are absolutely no preservatives, additives, artificial ingredients, colorings, stabilizers, anti-caking agents or GMOs in Rosita wild Bee Bread. It’s naturally gluten-free and Paleo friendly. 

Wild bee bread versus domesticated bee bread

Rosita bee bread is derived from wild bee hives and wild bees that cannot be domesticated, and is free of human intervention. This means that the wax, honey and bee bread are free from medicinal residues often used to maintain domestic hives and prevent bee diseases.

Commercially-farmed bees are commonly treated with antibiotics, suffer stress, eat synthetic food instead of their own honey and bee bread, and are forced to fly in fields sprayed with pesticides. All this destroys the bees' healthy bacteria, which is their defense against disease. And therefore, the honey and bee bread from commercial bees are lacking in quality.*

Wild bees that nest high up in trees and cliffs don’t suffer from any of these problems. On the contrary, their honey stomachs are full of friendly bacteria and the honey and bee bread they produce are of superior quality — teeming with friendly bacteria, antioxidants and phytochemicals.*

Other names

Bee bread has also been traditionally called “ambrosia’ (food of the gods) and “perga.” Since ancient times, bee bread has been used by various cultures for its nutritional and health-supporting properties.* 

It involves a great deal of work to procure this extremely rare and nutritious food, which is likely one of man's earliest foods.

Try this incredible product and treat yourself to one of nature’s true healthy gifts. 

100% wild and raw, fresh bee bread from wild giant rock bees (Apis dorsata).

Nutrients occur naturally and are never added.

Bee bread is unprocessed with unique properties due to the unique bee species, giant rock bees (Apis dorsata) and its ayurvedic plant base from the forests. It’s a genuine, rare and niche superfood!*

Ayurvedic plant base 

The biochemical richness of bee bread varies upon the flora diversity of the region and the time of the pollen collection. Rosita Bee Bread is sourced from the world’s most pristine areas, including the Himalayas. The wild bees forage on a variety of Ayurvedic wild naturally-growing therapeutic flora with health-supporting properties such as neem, sweet neem, jamun and many more!*

Health benefits, studies and ancient use

In many countries, bee bread and other bee-derived products are implemented in apitherapy (treatment using bee-derived products) to support health in various ways.*

  • A Russian study questioned 150 Russian centenarians in the Caucasus region about their diet, age and occupation and found that most worked as beekeepers and nearly all of them regularly consumed honey enriched with pollen.*
     
  • Scientific research suggests that due to its nutrient-rich profile, bee bread may act as an antioxidant, antimicrobial (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral) and anti-inflammatory.* 
     
  • Moreover, bee bread may support intestinal flora, the digestive and immune systems, liver and prostate health, urinary health, fertility and libido, triglyceride and cholesterol levels within normal ranges, cardiovascular health, concentration and memory, nervous and endocrine system function and healthy energy levels.*
     
  • It may also act as a mild detoxifying agent and ease mild allergies, like hay fever.*
     
  • Plus, bee bread may support the skin and is associated with increased longevity.*
     
  • According to the American Apitherapy Society, bee bread has been used by Olympic athletes to support their immune systems, boost performance and improve their crucial recovery time after performance.*
     
  • Early Egyptians and the ancient Chinese believed bee bread to be a rejuvenator and balm.* Even the ancient Vikings are said to have taken honeycomb and bee bread with them on their long voyages.*

Bee bread is also a naturally-gluten free food and is appropriate for Paleo diets and other dietary protocols that focus on ancestral eating.*  

Bee bread versus bee pollen

Bee bread is characterized by a higher nutritional value than fresh pollen, and is more biologically active and digestible due to the high content of easily digestible sugars, fats, minerals and free amino acids.* And, due to the fermentation process, bee bread has an exceptional shelf life compared with dried or frozen pollen in which nutritional values are rapidly lost.

  • Adults: 1 teaspoon per day (approximately 8 nuggets). Active adults can increase the dose to 1 teaspoon twice per day or as required. 
  • Children and sensitive individuals: ½ teaspoon per day (approximately 4 nuggets).
  • Low and slow: Rosita is premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it’s critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a very small dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what dosage feels right for you.

How to take Rosita Bee Bread

Rosita Bee Bread may be consumed daily, preferably 30 minutes before breakfast or meals. It can be chewed or it can dissolve in the mouth. 

When to avoid 

Interestingly, while allergy to bee pollen is common, allergy to bee bread is rare.* However, Rosita Bee Bread is not recommended for people with a history of anaphylactic shocks or those allergic or hypersensitive to bee products and bee stings.*

Rosita Bee Bread is also not recommended for children under 1 year of age. 

Rosita Bee Bread is extremely stable, as it’s a naturally fermented, self-preserving food — which maintains integrity and freshness in normal temperature variations and during storage and shipping.

  • Rosita Bee Bread should be refrigerated or frozen upon receiving. Even if the jar has been opened, it may still be stored in the freezer with the lid tightly closed. 
  • If refrigerated, consume within two years.
  • If frozen, consume within three years.
  • This product travels well for short periods of time, without being refrigerated or frozen, due to its stable nature.
