Found inOxford dict. of biology, 2004 (royal jelly: a highly nutritious food substance that is secreted from the hypopharyngeal and mandibular glands of worker honeybees and feed to the newly hatched larvae. After hatching, larvae that will develop into worker bees are fed on royal jelly for three days, after which their diet changes to pollen and nectar. However, larvae that will develop into queen bees continue to be fed exclusively on royal jelly throughout the larval stage.)
