Bee Propolis, also called "bee glue" is a resinous, gummy substance that bees combine with wax to construct and maintain their hives... In lab tests, bee propolis has exhibited a variety of interesting antimicrobial and anti-tumor properties... It contains amino acid, minerals, ethanol, vitamin A, B complex, E, pollen and highly active ingredients known as flavonoids or bioflavonoids... usually at a 500mg pill... known for its disinfecting agents and energy enhancements... blaze22
You might find propolis in bee pollen along with tiny pieces of beeswax. It depends on how often the pollen is collected and the efforts of the person cleaning the pollen before sale. If you want to check the pollen you have on hand just spread some out on a paper plate then with a toothpick just poke the pollen. If it is pollen it should crumble. If it is propolis it should stick to the toothpick and it is usually grey in color. Keep in mind some pollen is grey in color also.
