Royal Jelly is a milky secretion produced by worker honey bees and is considered to be among the world’s most renowned superfood substances. It gets its name from the fact that it is fed to the queen bee because its multitude of nutrients help the queen bee to live 50 times longer than the rest of the bees in the hive. In fact, the queen eats exclusively Royal Jelly throughout her life. The association with the queen is where the ‘Royal’ aspect of this jelly comes from. The composition of Royal Jelly varies depending on geography and climate but it typically contains about 60-70% water, 12-15% proteins, 10-16% sugar, 3%-6% fats, and 2%-3% vitamins, mineral salts and amino acids.
