How long can you keep bee pollen granules in the refrigerator before they go bad or lose their potency?

Hi Kim,
We recommend keeping them in the freezer over the fridge. In the freezer they will last indefinitely.

Hello. I just found a small plastic bag of bee pollen in my fiance's cabinet. I don't know how old it is and has not been refrigerated. I hate to waste such a valuable product, but am not sure what to do with it at this point. Any help is much appreciated! Thank you.

Angela's comments:

Examine it and smell for any signs of rancidity. If there are none, try a couple of granules and see how it tastes. If it was kept dry it may be ok to consume. Otherwise, dispose of it.

thank you for the great info on this site, however, we understand bee pollen will keep forever in the freezer, BUT what if we have kept it in the fridge?? how long will it last in the fridge? thanks !

3 - 6 months is recommended in the fridge for optimal freshness but up to a year can be done.

What about fridge?
by: Ellen

I wish I had found this site sooner - great info! I've been keeping mine in the fridge. Do you have any estimate of how long they will last that way? (Going into freezer from now on.)

Hi Ellen,
Bee pollen will last several years if kept in the freezer. Glad you are enjoying the site!

bee healthy,
