Q. What is the difference between royal jelly, beeswax, and propolis?

Propolis is made from the resins gathered from trees and other plants and then modified by
the bees’ own enzymes as they process the material, mix it with beeswax, and make it into a
protective antibacterial glue and sealant. Bees use propolis to protect their hive.

Royal jelly is a nutrient-rich food made by honey bees to feed both larvae and queens.
For larvae, it is only fed for a short time, while queens rely on this food for their entire lives.
Royal jelly is considered to have health properties of its own, but it is not the same thing
as propolis.

Beeswax is often confused with propolis, but they are not the same. Beeswax is used to
construct the cell walls of the hive, while propolis is used to seal the hive (it is sometimes
called “bee glue”) and protects the hive from bacteria and other invaders.

Q. Why does Propolis have different colors?

Propolis can be subject to differences in climate and plant type. Fortunately, the propolis used in Terry Naturally CANADA’s Propolis Extract is collected in a defined area for more consistent results. The bee hives that supply GH2002 are kept in areas that are carefully maintained so that the bees have a consistent food source and produce a consistent type of dark yellow to light brown propolis.
