Bee Pollen


Does bee pollen need a hechsher? I haven’t seen any that are ever kosher. Usually sold by local bee keepers so likely will never see any with a hechsher.



  1. The following is taken from the Star-K site (

    Bee Pollen – Bees have brushes on their legs which collect the pollen from the flowers. The pollen is brushed toward the back of the bee and is pressed into baskets found on their legs. The bees add traces of saliva and nectar to make a more effective “press,” because pollen is naturally dusty and requires a binding agent. This popular health food product is kosher.
