Bee pollen left unrefrigerated

by Lori
(Holland )

I accidentally put my bee pollen in the cupboard for 48 hours rather than the freezer.

Once I realized this I immediately put it back in the freezer.

Is this bee pollen still good to use or shall I dispose of it and buy a new package?
Thanks Lori

Yes, it is completely fine.

refrigerated pollen
by: Anonymous

I accidentally left fresh bee pollen out for 2 days, I was wondering if it's safe to use.

It is likely safe to consume, provided there are no signs of spoilage. It will have lost some of its efficacy however.

Enzymes in honey
by: Anonymous

I m very much new in understanding honey in depth.
1) Which honey is called raw honey.
2) Is Pollen is one of the content or Enzymes in honey.
3) I buy honey in 60 lb buckets from some local bee keepers or from some processing units in Texas and sell in my convenient store. Also I donate to some senior citizens in our church who are using for health reasons and home remedies. Sometimes honey crystallize and I have to put that bucket in hot water, now I am planning to buy a heating pad. I heard if I heat above 63 or 65F it burns pollen in the honey.
Can you please guide me ? I would highly appreciate it. Thanks.

Angela's Comments:

No, that temperature will not burn the pollen.

Can I just eat it?

Do i just eat the pollen straight, or mix it with something?

Yes you absolutely can eat is straight. You can also mix it in yogurt, apple sauce or a smoothie.

unrefrigerated pollen
by: Lynne

Hi there,
I left an unopened container of fresh bee pollen unrefrigerated for about 3 weeks. It smells tangy and Im sure its fermenting. Should it be thrown out?

If the bee pollen was dried, then it is most likely fine. If it was truly fresh and not dried before it was packaged/sold, then it is expired.

Hi Angela,

I love your site and everything you do. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us.

My question is: freeze or refrigerate bee pollen? I just keep mine in the crisper. I wouldn't think it would be good to freeze it.

What say you?


I recommend freezing it for longer term storage Vicki. Short term the fridge is great.
