refers to microsporic grains from seed plants that are gathered by bees in sacs on their legs and brought back to the hive as their main source of nutrition. A worker bee must work over 200 hours to collect one teaspoon of pollen. Humans use bee pollen in nutritional supplements, shampoos, toothpastes, and deodorants. Alternatives include pollen collected directly from plants without bees.
