Bee pollen is a ball of pollen made by young bees when they land on flowers; they collect the pollen from plant anthers and mix it with saliva and nectar or honey and place it in specific baskets (called corbiculae) that are situated on the tibia of their hind legs. Bees carry these balls back to the hive in sacs on their legs and store them in the hive’s honeycomb. The pollen then ferments into “bee bread,” which feeds a bee colony.
