palaMOUNTAINS Vita Bee has been scientifically formulated by a Massey University’s Food Scientist, Associate Professor Brian Wilkinson. The aim is to support the health and vitality of honey bees in the PRE and POST of the honey flow. This unique formulation provides essential dietary nutrients that are required in a bio available form.
The dietary requirements of Honey bees consists of proteins (amino acids), carbohydrates (sugars), lipids (fatty acids, sterols) and essential vitamins, minerals and water. However this is not always available in the natural environment due to complex and changing environmental factors; so therefore it is essential that these important nutrients are obtained through other external means. Honey bee nutrition is an important aspect of successful bee keeping and improving hive productivity.
