    About Royal Jelly Harvesting

    In nature when a colony needs a new queen, worker bees will build several wax queen cells. A queen will lay an egg into these cells and nurse bees will fill them with royal jelly to feed and develop the new queen. The hatched queens then fight it out – and the survivor is the new queen of the colony.  

    Start queen cellsCommercially, beekeepers mimic the natural process by inserting wax queen cells or “starts” into the hive. The beekeeper will then insert an egg into these starts and the nurse bees then fill them with royal jelly. 

     At a very specific time, the beekeeper removes these fake queen cells from the colony and uses a small suction tool to extract the royal jelly from each cup. Larvae are filtered out and the royal jelly is chilled immediately. This painstaking process requires a strong colony and even more attentive beekeeper. It is estimated to produce a single ounce of royal jelly it requires 10 to 20 cells. 

    How The Royal Jelly is Freeze-dried

    Freeze-dried royal jelly goes through a process of dehydration, also known as lyophilizing, to remove the water by exposing it to dry freezing air. This process does not include heat or chemicals. Lyophilized royal jelly in our capsules maintains all the nutrients of the fresh product and allows for storage at room temperature and a longer shelf life. We place this highly concentrated royal jelly into a vegetarian capsule along with rice flour (to prevent clumping and help pouring into capsules). By freeze-drying, royal jelly becomes over three and a half times as strong as an identical amount of fresh royal jelly. Lyophilized royal jelly is also much easier to add into your daily routine. Each capsule contains 167mg of highly concentrated royal jelly powder which is the equivalent of 500mg of fresh royal jelly.

    Royal Jelly Sourcing

    GloryBee has a longstanding relationship with its royal jelly supplier and has sourced royal jelly from the same supplier for over 20 years. We source royal jelly from the rural remote areas of the Anhui, Hebei, Shandong provinces of mainland China where beekeepers have been producing royal jelly for decades. Many of the beekeepers we source our royal jelly from have been keeping bees for three generations or more. As the senior beekeeper retires, children are taking over the business and continuing to grow and establish larger colonies. We fully trust the quality of our product and test each batch of royal jelly to ensure freshness, potency, and to ensure there are no prohibited substances.

    Like every other domestic supplier of royal jelly, GloryBee sources its royal Jelly from China. Unlike every other supplier, we believe that our customers should know this information up front. One of the hidden secrets of the royal jelly industry is that 99% of royal jelly comes from China because there is very little royal jelly production in the United States or other countries. The United States beekeeping industry is geared toward honey production and pollination. Because royal jelly is difficult to produce and requires a large number of strong colonies to be an effective business, few domestic beekeepers pursue royal jelly production.

    Unfortunately, some beekeepers in China have severely damaged the reputation of China’s otherwise strong beekeeping industry. There have been reports in the past where beekeepers used prohibited antibiotics or somehow adulterated or diluted royal jelly to lower their costs. Every batch of royal jelly GloryBee imports is tested for potency and for prohibited substances. Due to our longstanding relationship with our supplier, we can guarantee that they utilize quality harvesting practices and produce only the highest quality royal jelly so you can be confident in what you’re buying.
