Indian Royal Jelly

According to a recent Pune-based researcher, Indian Royal Jelly has outperformed vendors of high quality produced in Thailand and Taiwan.

Key Points

  • Royal jelly is considered a good antioxidant. It helps women with fertility problems.
  • Indian Royal Jelly meets the ISO-prescribed standards set by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in 2019.
  • Before 2019, there were no set standards for Royal Jelly in India.

Royal Jelly:

  • Royal jelly is a white or pale-yellow mixture of honey and a substance released from the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands of bees.
  • It contains 60-70 percent moisture or water, 1-10 percent lipids, 0.8-3 percent minerals, 9-18 percent protein, 7 percent sugar etc. It is used as food for young larvae and adult queen bees.

Storage of Royal Jelly:

Royal jelly is best stored immediately after production, during packaging, as well as at low temperatures near the consumer. The proper temperature to store fresh royal jelly is below -20°C. A freezer (a special machine) is needed to remove the moisture.
