How long is bee pollen good for?
by Cary Anne M.
Does bee pollen have an expiration as far as losing it's strength? If so, how long is it good for? Should it be refrigerated? I was told no because it could become moldy? Also, is it safe for a pregnant person take it?
Bee pollen will last a year unrefrigerated. It does lose its potency over long periods of time but we're talking months and months. If you refrigerate it, or better yet, keep it in the freezer, it will last indefinitely and not lose much potency. Mold has never been an issue for our pollen as we air dry it to remove any moisture before packing. Mold is only an issue if exposed to moisture. Raw pollen fresh out of the hive is very moist and quite soft by nature but must be dried in order to maintain freshness upon packaging.
We are located in Toronto, Canada but source our pollen from all over North America.
