    Default Is all royal jelly the same?

    May sound basic, but it appears that the jelly you find in a 1-day old larva, which seems somewhat clear and thin viscosity, where that of 5-day old larva seems opaque and much thicker. So is there a difference, or is it simply because that there is less of it early giving a different appearance? It would seem to make sense that they are different, due to different development requirements, but I've never read this before.

    Default Re: Is all royal jelly the same?

    I've read a few research papers that said basically the same thing - the mix changes each day. More % sugars in the beginning, more proteins in the later days. The percentages were different in the published tables, but the tendency was most often the same. I'll have to go back and look up who wrote what, where it was published, etc. - so I'll get back to you in a few days - I'm not near my sources right now. Anyone willing to chime in and cover me or correct me, please do so!
