Lyophilized Royal Jelly Freeze Dried Powder
Lyophilized Royal Jelly (Royal jelly powder) 3.0%, 5.0%, 6.0%
Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion used in the nutrition of larvae and adult queens. It is secreted from the glands in the hypopharynx of worker bees, and fed to all larvae in the colony, regardless of sex or caste.
When worker bees decide to make a new queen because the old one is either weakening or dead, they choose several tiny larvae and feed them with copious amounts of royal jelly in specially constructed queen cells. This type of feeding triggers the development of queen morphology, including the fully developed ovaries needed to lay eggs.
The overall composition of royal jelly is 67% water, 12.5% crude protein, including small amounts of many different amino acids, and 11% simple sugars (monosaccharides), also including a relatively high dose (5%) of fatty acids. It also contains many trace minerals, some enzymes, antibacterial and antibiotic components, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), and trace amounts of vitamin C, but none of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
Royal jelly is difficult to be preserved at room temperature, and it is effortless to be destroyed by the action of air, sunlight, and water, thus affecting its efficacy. Scientists have found that the problem can be solved by treating royal jelly with a vacuum freeze-drying process that removes most of the water and turns it into a crystalline powder. The product of this treatment is Royal Jelly Freeze Dried Powder.
Royal Jelly Freeze Dried Powder is separated from royal jelly by sublimation of water in the royal jelly under low temperature and vacuum conditions. The lost water Lyophilized royal jelly is crushed and made into dry powder. Its activity is stable, its quality will not change after three years, and it is easy to store and transport.
