Terpenoids: Recent Advances in Extraction, Biochemistry and Biotechnology


Propolis is a resin, which comes from from bee colonies and is considered a natural antibiotic, without serious side effects, compared to synthetic treatments, and has several pharmacological properties. Geopropolis is a mixture of clay and propolis produced by species of stingless bees of the genus Melipona, hence the name geopropolis. It is formed in the same way as propolis produced by other bee species. In this review, we aim to address general aspects related to terpenoids present in propolis and geopropolis. Here, we report the main terpenoids, their chemical structure, and pharmacological and food industry applications

Keywords: Bess, Food Industry, Pharmaceutical Properties, Stingless Bees, Terpenoids.
