Royal jelly is the secretion of the pharyngeal glands of the young worker bees that nurture larvae in the bee nest. The lifespan of bees is limited to one to six months, while queen bees can generally live for five to seven years due to constant consumption of royal jelly. Royal jelly contains protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamin A, vitamin Bl, vitamin B2, rich folic acid, pantothenic acid and inositol. There are also substances similar to acetylcholine, as well as a variety of amino acids and biological hormones required by the human body.
The color of pure royal jelly varies slightly depending on the pollen consumed by bees, and is generally divided into milky white and light yellow. The taste of royal jelly is pungent and sour. Generally, royal jelly produced before mid-May can be classified as spring jelly, and royal jelly produced after mid-May is classified as summer and autumn jelly. The creamy yellow spring jelly is the best quality royal jelly in the year, especially the best royal jelly produced for the first time, with high royal jelly acid content. Autumn pulp is slightly darker in color and has a slightly lower water content than spring pulp, but its quality is slightly lower than that of spring pulp. Royal jelly contains 10-hydroxy-2-decenoic acid, also called royal jelly. In nature, only royal jelly contains this substance. The minimum 10-HDA in royal jelly is 1.4%. When the 10-HDA content is higher than 2%, it is the royal jelly of best quality.
