Such as bright red: Amorpha, horse chestnut; orange: purple vetch, sunflower, sakura, rice, wild chrysanthemum, tea tree; golden yellow; oil (oil food) dish, mustard, willow, cotton; dark yellow : black glutinous rice, salted wood, dandelion; light yellow: soybean, sorghum, chestnut, hibiscus, cucumber, eucalyptus, white clover, codonopsis, apple (apple food); beige: corn, alfalfa, wormwood, artemisia, pine; Powder white: sesame, privet, motherwort; white: medlar, wild osmanthus; pale green: plum, eucalyptus; gray: blue scorpion, paulownia; gray green: Vitex, buckwheat; purple: broad bean; black: Bee pollen is a pollen grain collected by bees from the angiosperm angiosperm or the microspores on the microspores of gymnosperm. It is made into a pollen group by bees bonding. The size of the pellets is basically the same, generally 2.5 to 3.5 mm in diameter. The dry weight is 10~17 mg and the water content is below 8%. The better bee pollen is neatly tidy, the variety is pure, the color is the same, no impurities, no odor, no mildew, no insects, and relatively hard.
The outer wall of the pollen is a hard shell with acid-proof, alkali-resistant and anti-microbial properties. The bee pollen that does not break the wall can only slowly release the contents from its germination hole. Fresh bee pollen has a special spicy scent, but the taste is also different, some taste slightly sweeter, some slightly bitter.
