Raw royal jelly

Luca94 Aug 2, 2013 05:16 PM

Hello. Does anyone have a clue where i can find raw preferably organic royal jelly. Its easy to find raw honey as there are many beekeepers making good quality honey here in Quebec but im not sure if i ever saw raw royal jelly anywhere in montreal. Any clues? Thanks

    im not sure it's even possible: royal jelly is specialized food which comes from the worker bee, ONLY given to a larvae meant to become a queen. it is a very specialized item within a hive, and i don't believe it is stored. i doubt it could be gotten "organically" as it seems that it would be very invasive to a hive to collect it. i would go to the farmers markets and ask the beekeepers. i've been keeping bees for 4 years and i've never seen royal jelly stores in my hives. good luck.

      Health food stores should have it. Give them a call: Tau, Bio-Terre, Alfalfa, Rachelle Bery, etc.
