Feed for Laboratory Animals

In experiments using laboratory animals, nutritional and environmental factors can have a significant impact on the
laboratory animals. For this reason the feed used for these animals must be strictly managed, from procurement of
ingredients, mixture and pelletization through storage and analysis to transport. To support and enhance the
consistency of quality and reliability of its feed for laboratory animals, Feed One requires all employees to exercise strict
quality control, and makes every effort to satisfy all required quality standards (including nutrients, appearance and
packaging). Our feed for laboratory animals is completely free of antibiotics, antimicrobials, antiprotozoal agents,
preservatives、fungicides or other chemicals.

Feed for Honeybees

Feed One produces “Beehatcher” and “Beebreed”, pollen-substitutes that beekeepers can supply during breeding
season, when they wish to increase the population of bee larvae, and when natural pollen is scarce.
We market these products through the Japan Beekeeping Association. Under contract to Japan Beekeeping
Association, Feed One produces feed (sugar) for honeybees, for use in periods when nectar is scarce.
“Apitamin”, a feed for honeybees launched by Feed One in February 2014, approximates the component of
nectar by enriching sugar water and sugar solution with vitamins and minerals.

Please see below for overviews of each product.

Product Lineup

Apitamin, a Feed for Honeybees Enriched with Vitamins and Minerals

When nectar is scarce, beekeepers supplement bees’ diets with sugar water or sugar solution, which lack the vitamins and minerals contained in nectar and honey. Designed with the health of honeybees in mind, “Apitamin” is a feed for honeybees that is enriched with the vitamins and minerals honeybees need which lack in sugar water and sugar solutions. Testing and development of “Apitamin” were conducted by Feed One under contract to Junichi Takahashi, an associate professor at the Department of Bioresource and Environmental Sciences of Kyoto Sangyo University. This product is also recommended for honeybees used for pollination for which insufficient nectar is a frequent problem. Feed One sell “Apitamin” through Japan Beekeeping Association.

Advantages of “Apitamin”

Advantage 1:
It is easy to prepare and supply.
Advantage 2:
It supports the health of beekeepers’ precious honeybees.
Advantage 3:
It is recommended for honeybees used for pollination for which insufficient nectar is a frequent problem.

Pollen-substitute “Beehatcher” and “Beebreed”

Pollen is a precious source of protein for honeybees. It plays a vital role in supporting the health of honeybees and their hives. During breeding season and the like, however, pollen tends to be scarce. To address this problem, Feed One produces and sells pollen-substitutes, which can be supplied to honeybees as a replacement for natural pollen.


“Beehatcher” is a pollen-substitute in paste form that is highly palatable to honeybees.
“Beehatcher” is nutritionally-balanced feedo for honeybee larvae and worker bees, and
contains protein, lipids, vitamins and minerals. “Beehatcher” supports honeybee larva
propagation and the health preservation of honeybees.


“Beebreed” is a powder that can be used to make a paste-like pollen-substitute that suits the
feeding habits of honeybees. Simply mix “Beebreed” with sugar water or the like and spread it
on hives. Like “Beehatcher”, “Beebreed” supports honeybee larva propagation and the health
preservation of honeybees.
