We test Rosita® Bee Bread in a microbiological lab to meet strict regulations for potency and purity.

Here’s how the process works: Once harvested, Rosita® wild and raw Bee Bread is immediately stored at low temperatures. A Bee Bread sample is then sent to a governmental inspection agency in India, where it undergoes microbiological and heavy metal testing. Only if the results are satisfactory can it be awarded a Veterinary Certificate, which is essential for the Bee Bread to clear customs and move on to being bottled and sent to you.

We offer transparent access to our test results, which prove that our Bee Bread meets international quality standards. This way, you can enjoy our safe and effective products with peace of mind.
