Proposals for desiccated bee pollen production and labeling.

Bee pollen should be with the product-specific quality traits, natural and without contaminations. Available requirements for commercially and organically produced bee pollen lack some specific details related to the processing, storage and sales of the desiccated bee pollen, allowed for human consumption. Based on our surveys and available literature data the more specific requirements to the processing, storage and labeling of this unique food product are proposed with regard to food safety and preservation of its natural physical, chemical and organoleptique characteristics.
