Where Does The Shasta's Pine Pollen Come From?
The Shasta sources one of the finest raw pine pollen products in the health industry, which means you don't have to lick your car windshield to get those wonderful benefits.
Sourced in the pristine forests of the Northern United States and Canada within protected, nonpolluted, and high-elevated mountain forests. We support local harvesters that rely on pollen harvesting as a source of income.
What Does It Mean When Pine Pollen Is Cracked?
It's very important that the pine pollen ingested is cracked. The reason why is because the pollen has a protective coating that can withstand the digesting acids in our stomachs. Having the pollen outer shell cracked allows for our tummies to break down all the goodness that's inside. This is usually not a good practice as it means that the nutritional value of the pine pollen begins to degrade BUT because we specialize in small batches you don't have to worry about it. We do not have a giant storage facility of pine pollen just waiting to be bought.
The Shasta's raw pine pollen is cracked so put those pliers away!!
How Do I Use Pine Pollen?
Just stir your pine pollen into and beverage or sauce, you can even sprinkle it on salads and add it to soups. You are only limited on the way you use it by your own imagination so get creative with it, It's a superfood!
