Products of the hive

" Entrust your contaminant analyses to a specialist "

Beehive products sector

The products of the hive can be derived from products of plant origin processed by bees or can come directly from the bee. The hive produces various substances such as :

  • Wax: substance produced by bees for the construction of their hive.
  • Propolis: resinous substance used by bees to assemble the elements of the hive.
  • Pollen: provides vital proteins for bees.
  • Royal jelly: secretion of the bee from the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands.
  • Honey: sweet substance produced by bees from honeydew or flower nectar.
