WHAT IS JELLY
Jelly is an extremely nutritious, thick, milky-white creamy liquid, of distinctive scent, a slightly sour and somewhat hot flavour. It is produced by working bees, by the secretion of flower sperm, nectar and water. This jelly is fed to working bee larvae and drones at the beginning of their lives, while the queen bee is fed throughout her development as well as later in her life span. The most commonly used jelly is taken from the queen cell, hence the name “royal jelly”. The main ingredients of royal jelly are albumen, vitamins, hormones, lipids, saccharine, water, amino acid etc.

How to store royal jelly?
Royal jelly in its original state should be stored in a hermetically sealed dark glass pot and be kept in low temperatures (-20°С). It can also be mixed with honey, pollen or with a propolis solution that serves as a natural conserver, thus making it possible to store at higher temperatures. The most effective conservation of royal jelly can be achieved by using a special procedure (liofilisation) for water extraction that turns it into powder, allowing it to be kept for a long period.
