What is bee bread?

Bee bread can be defined as the pollen fermented by bees. It is that bee bread is the state in which the outer membrane of the pollen in the flowers is digested by the bee's own enzymes and the entire nutrient content is released. In fact, the breakdown of the membrane by enzymes is a fermentation process, and beneficial bacteria develop in this fermentation. In this respect, bee bread is easily digestible and has probiotic properties.
Lactobacillus bacteria are in the composition of bee bread. These bacteria are also found in the most common probiotic food, yogurt.
