Can I swallow bee pollen granules whole?

Is it ok to just swallow bee pollen granules whole with a glass of water rather than chew them? I did read that we don't digest them completely when whole but didn't know if this was true. I'd like to get the whole benefit from taking it!

Angela's Response:

It is okay to swallow bee pollen granules whole. By failing to initiate the digestive process through chewing, you will likely not digest them quite as well as if you had chewed them thoroughly. I do recommend chewing if possible. Many people don't like the taste of bee pollen and do need to swallow them whole. This is not the end of the world but not preferable. One other option for you would be to blend them into a smoothie. This will help the digestive process and the blender will do the work for you!
