Royal jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used in the nutrition of the larvae. It is secreted from the hypopharyngeal glands in the heads of young workers and used (among other substances) to feed the larvae in the colony. Additionally, if a queen is desired, a chosen larva will receive large quantities of royal jelly as its only food source for the first four days of its growth.
