How long does bee pollen stay fresh not refrigerated?

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my email. I am going to be away from electricity for about a year and am looking for the best product. I would enjoy fresh bee pollen but have read it needs to be refrigerated but have also read that it can last awhile not being refrigerated, just not as long. My question is how long will it stay fresh not refrigerated being stored in my backpack? I'm not really to excited about taking the bee pollen pills. If it needs to be refrigerated would the raw honey with bee pollen be a better option as that needs to be stored in room temperature? Once again thank you for your time.

God Alone,

Shaun

Hi Shaun,
I don't recommend storing bee pollen at room temp long term but there are things you can do to help keep it fresh. Obviously, the most important thing to do is to keep it dry and out of any excessive heat. If you have one or two of those moisture absorbing packets (silica packets) from another food product, put those in with your bee pollen.

As for the bee pollen honey product - this is a good option but the amount of bee pollen in the raw honey is quite low. So it really depends on how much bee pollen you require. If its not a lot, then this would a very good option for you.

Hope that helps.
Angela

hi here in our place '' we can buy this raw honey with pollen ' the bottle is 375 ml and the pollen is about 1/4 of the bottle.i just want to know how long can i keep it without refregration. ill wait for your comments.

Since the pollen is mixed in honey, this will preserve the bee pollen long term so you can likely keep it at room temp for a couple of years.

How long do granules last unrefrigerated?

by Erin

I purchased a container of granules from Whole Foods (they were in the fridge section) and then forgot to refrigerate once I got home. It has been about two weeks and they have been in a cool dark place in my cabinet. Do you think they are still OK?

Angela's Comments:

Yes, bee pollen is fine to be left at room temperature for a couple of weeks. Longer term (one month plus) you'd want to look at keeping them cooler.

Refrigerating Bee Pollen

by Emily Oswald
(St. Louis MO )

Hello,

I bought my first container of Bee Pollen a few weeks back and did not know I was suppose to keep in in the refrigerator. It has been stored in my pantry. Has my bee pollen gone bad since its been out of the refrigerator for a few weeks?

Thanks,

Emily

Hi Emily,
It is unlikely that it has gone bad. Was it a fresh bee pollen that was sold to you from a refrigerator or was it a dried bee pollen? Most bee pollen is dried - if this is the case then it is fine at room temperature.

Bee healthy,
Angela

Unrefrigerated Bee Pollen - Still Good?

I bought a big jar of Fresh Bee Pollen and didn't realize it needed to be refrigerated until 3 days later when I opened it. Is it still good to use?

Angela's Comments:

Yes, it will still be good to use as long as you didn't expose it to excessive heat or moisture.

I have a medium size jar of Bee Pollen in the cabinet...would they still be safe to consume?

Angela's comments:

It really depends on how long it has been left in the cabinet unrefrigerated.
