The aim of this study was to determine the phenolic and flavonoid content, and antioxidant properties of tow samples of bee pollen harvested from Algeria. The content of total polyphenolic compounds, flavonoids, and antioxidant activity by the cyclic voltammetry method were determined. The contents of polyphenolic compounds was 22.68 mg/g for the pollen from Blida and 21,9 mg/g for Tipaza pollen. High antioxidant activities were found for the cyclic voltammetry method, with values that ranged from 22,3 to 27,63 mg of AAE·g–1 pollen. The bee pollen of Blida showed high antioxidant activity probably due to the high content of polyphenolic compounds present in pollen.
