Mineral content of bee pollen from Serbia / Sadržaj minerala u uzorcima pčelinjega peluda iz Srbije

In this study we analysed mineral composition of bee pollen of different plant origin collected across Serbia using inductively coupled plasma - optical emission spectrometry. The most abundant elements were potassium, calcium, and magnesium. The samples were also exceptionally rich in iron and zinc, which are very important as nutrients. Judging by our findings, mineral composition of bee pollen much more depends on the type of pollen-producing plant than on its geographical origin.

U ovom radu analiziran je mineralni sastav pčelinjega peluda različitoga biljnoga podrijetla prikupljenoga diljem Srbije primjenom inducirano spregnute plazme - optičke emisijske spektroskopije. Najzastupljeniji elementi su kalij, kalcij i magnezij. Uzorci su također iznimno bogati željezom i cinkom, što povećava njihovu nutritivnu vrijednost. Prema našim saznanjima, mineralni sastav pčelinjega peluda puno više ovisi o vrsti biljaka koje proizvode pelud nego o njegovu zemljopisnom podrijetlu.

Keywords: honey bee; geographical origin; macroelements; microelements; palynology; plant origin; nutritive value; toxicity
