Royal jelly, in appearance, is a yellow creamy substance with a fairly thick consistency. It contains around 66% water so the first thing to do to make royal jelly suitable for humans is to remove the water. We remove the water by a common freeze-drying process called 'lyophilization', at which point it becomes a whitish powder. The powder contains the full spectrum of nutrients present in the original creamy substance, only the water is removed. It is now nutritionally 'locked', and ready to be consumed.
A common question we're asked is "which is better, the fresh liquid royal jelly, or its freeze-dried version?
The answer is a simple one, though several manufacturers try to make it not so. The freeze-dried powder is superior as the nutrients are locked in place and the product doesn't begin to go bad due to the presence of moisture. Think about it: all the herbal supplements you buy in capsule form contain a dry powder. They do not contain the plant/herb in its moist form as collected, as the moisture would cause it to go bad. It's no different with royal jelly. Sure, you can find fresh liquid royal jelly, but don't be surprised if it hasn't been pasteurized to conform to USDA regulations on the handling of liquid products.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ROYAL JELLY?
When sold as a dietary supplement, as we do here, it is to treat a variety of physical ailments and chronic diseases* Though extensive research isn't available for most herbal/vitamin products, there's often a preponderance of physical evidence supporting claims to the benefits of some products, and royal jelly is no different. It is taken widely to support:
- A healthy immune system
- Natural energy production
- Production of healthy cholesterol
- Regulation and lowering of high blood pressure
- Libido in active healthy adults
How do these claims come to be?
Mostly it's through empirical evidence in studying the effects of taking the substance by controlled groups. Also, it's by looking closely at the nutritional content of royal jelly and knowing from tests on other substances how certain nutrients can promote human health.
For example, studies have shown that specific amino acids, fatty acids and phenolic compounds found in royal jelly appear to have potent antioxidant effects. The specific proteins found in royal jelly may help in lowering cholesterol.

Royal Jelly contains various healthy nutrients, B Vitamins, trace minerals, carbs, proteins and fats.
The nutritional composition can and does vary greatly between different royal jelly samples. These variations are based on where the substance is sourced, but more importantly, how the royal jelly is managed once removed from the hive. We go back to our original statement here that freeze-dried royal jelly locks in the nutritional integrity, whereas leaving the water in the substance can only result in degradation.
