Bee bread or bee pollen is the main source of food for most honey bees and their larvae. It is fed to all larvae except those that are destined to become queens; the queen larvae are fed royal jelly instead. Bee bread consists of honey and pollens which are gathered by the worker bees. A recent study of bee bread showed it contained 188 kinds of fungi and 29 kinds of bacteria. Bee bread is sometimes referred to as Ambrosia. Bee bread is used in naturopathic medicine traditions and as a nutritional supplement, although exposure may trigger allergic or anaphylactic reactions in sensitive people.
