Resumen:
Una empresa letona con más de 20 años de experiencia en productos apícolas busca universidades o centros de investigación para determinar la composición química del polen. El polen es rico en proteínas (aproximadamente el 40% de su contenido), aminoácidos libres, vitaminas, incluyendo del complejo B, y ácido fólico y es un alimento completo que contiene muchos elementos de los que carecen los productos de origen animal. La empresa se encargará de suministrar el polen para llevar a cabo el análisis y está interesada en establecer acuerdos de cooperación en materia de investigación.

Research of pollen chemical composition
Summary:
A small company from Latvia, involved in manufacturing apiary products, is looking for universities or research institutions that could determine the chemical composition of bee pollen. The company is looking for research cooperation agreement.
Description:
A small company from Latvia, with more than 20 year experience in bee keeping and manufacturing apiary products, is looking for cooperation partner to carry out pollen chemical composition research.
Bee Pollen is made by honeybees, and is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature´s most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), free amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid.
Bee pollen is a complete food and contains many elements that products of animal origin do not possess. Bee pollen is richer in proteins than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body.
Bee pollen is a valuable therapeutics product highly valued by herbalists, due to its medical and nutritional applications. According to available research data, it demonstrates large number of valuable properties: anti-fungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hepatic-protective, anticancer immune-stimulating, local analgesic, etc..
The color of the pollen is also varying, from bright yellow to black. The color of pollen is closely tied to its chemical composition. Usually the hive pollen basket, is full with one type of pollens, however sometimes happens that the bees collect pollen from many different plant species.
To find out the chemical composition and to tie it to color of bee pollen, the company is looking for a university or research institution that could determine the bee chemical composition. Company is ready to supply pollen (dry or natural) for testing. The company will observe the possibility to join the common research and to take part in joint research projects.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The company is interested in bee pollen effect on human health. Pollen grains, depending of the plant species, differ in shape, color, size, and weight. Also their chemical composition will be different.
The grain shapes are diverse: round, cylindrical, bell-shaped, triangular, or thorny.
Their weight is equal to a dozen or several dozens of micro-grams.
The majority of pollens consist of single grains.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is looking for SME, preferably - university or research institution that could analyze the bee pollen composition and its benefits on health. The company is looking for research cooperation agreement.
