Royal Jelly

Royal Jelly (Royal Jelly)

Royal jelly is secreted by the hypopharyngeal gland (sometimes called the larval and pupal food glands of bees) of young worker bees (nurses) to feed on the larvae and adult queen bees.

Royal jelly, as it is secreted, is fed directly to the queen or larvae and is not stored. For this reason, royal jelly is not considered a traditional bee product.

During queen rearing, it is only possible to produce large amounts of royal jelly for bee and queen larvae if harvested. The queen larvae cannot consume this food as quickly as it is prepared, and the royal jelly accumulates in the queen’s cells. Therefore, the exact commercial definition of Royal Jelly is related to the production method; This means that this food is for bee larvae that are four to five days old.
