Do you collect royal jelly by using queen cups, graft larvae into them, and have the bees fill them with royal jelly, and then harvest the royal jelly, or is there a more scientific method of doing it? Also, do I need to refrigerate or freeze it, or can I leave it out at room temp. How do they make it? Also, I bought some royal jelly mixed with honey, and my throat felt kind of a little swollen on one side the next day. Could that be what did that, like an allergic reaction, or is that something else? Thank you

If a reaction is suspected a medical doctor should be consulted. Especially before taking the chance of an adverse reaction.

It should be refrigerated or frozen for storage. We have to pay extra for dry ice and a cooler to ship overnight when buying royal jelly. The honey is for the bitterness. It tastes worse than fresh lemons to me.

Never tasted it before, but since you mentioned, I don't think I will eat it plain. Thanks for letting me know. The royal jelly has protein and vitamins, and helps build stamina, aside from being good for you in other ways.
