So I just made my first batch of HPW, which looks a great deal less viscous than the BML I was previously feeding. Is that normal? Also.. how do you store the HPW incredients? The bee pollen and HPW powder? Frig, cabinet, etc.?

I keep mine in the fridge, but not the freezer.

And yes - it is much more liquid than BML.

I think she means the bee pollen and wombaroo, not the actual batch of HPW.

I'm honestly not sure. I've always kept mine in the fridge, but I know others who don't.

According to the Wombaroo High Protein Supplement packaging it says store in a cool dry place in an air tight container (once opened).

I emailed the director of Wombaroo about this and he said storing in a cupboard is ideal then added (his words) "Some people store the product in the fridge, but this is not really necessary."

Hope this helps.

I keep both the bee pollen and the Wombaroo in the cupboard and have had no issues.

Once I open a new box of High Protein, I place the bag it came in, inside a ziplock baggie and then place it back in the box and then place it in the fridge.

The bee pollen I place in my pantry.

CKB has a thread going on in which her vet recommends that bee pollen is kept in the freezer. I am going to be discussing this with Dr.Tristan as well today.

The High Protein Wombaroo is in the fridge because I personally feel if left in the pantry it could become like flour does and start gathering those pesty little weevils bugs...in the fridge I dont have to worry about that.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

Actually, that was my vet that suggested that smile After my little mystery illness with Molly, my vet suggested that I keep all dry food ingredients refrigerated. I think that considering how humid it is where I live, it's definitely a good idea and I have been following her advise... We actually put a spare fridge in the garage so that I could store my vits in there because I get the big 7 lb tubs smile I also have my baby oatmeal in there, milk replacer, bee pollen, acacia gum, etc.
