Preservatives and Chemicals

Royal Jelly is a yellow or white fluid with a pungent odor and sour flavor. It is more viscous when stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. Debris and other impurities such as larval skin and wax fragments are essential to the chemical and nutrient composition of Royal Jelly.

The main components of Royal Jelly include water, sugars, lipids, proteins, and mineral salts. Proteins and sugars make up the bulk of the Royal Jelly’s compounds, along with specific nitrogenous substances, glycoproteins, amino acids, and insulin-like substances.



Royal Jelly must be packed in tightly-sealed, dark glasses to protect it from light, heat, and air. Exposure to room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes will result in the oxidation of the Royal Jelly, changing its appearance from a white substance to a yellow liquid.


Enjoying Royal Jelly

Eating Royal Jelly does wonders for your health and body as Royal Jelly is nature’s purest antioxidants, reducing inflammatory diseases and oxidative stress.

Like honey, caution must be exercised when consuming Royal Jelly as it can lead to allergic reactions such as asthma and anaphylaxis. It can also cause inflammation and skin rashes when applied to the scalp.

To avoid harmful chemical reactions, it should only be taken with wooden and glass spoons. Although there is no harm in using plastic spoons, we discourage it to keep green practices.



Properly storing Royal Jelly is essential to keep its shelf-life and freshness. You can either refrigerate or freeze Royal Jelly. You can also mix some Honey if you plan to store it at room temperature. However, don’t leave it out too long otherwise it will oxidize.



Consuming bee products can help fight allergies. Get some bee products at your local farmer’s market or bee growers.

However, some people are seriously allergic to bee products. Do consult your doctor to know if your body can handle these potential allergens.
