The knowledge and awareness of healthy berries has been part of the Nordic ”pharmacy” for hundreds of years. Our geographic position in the very north has contributed with very unique characteristics. More studies are being done as well as new areas of use, which is leading to an increased demand, both for the food and beverage industry but foremost for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetics industry.
Our carefully selected berries have different use and unique benefits like our Nordic bilberry/Nordiska blåbär (Vaccinium myrtillus L.) that are the richest in anthocyanins if compared with cultivated blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) The bilberries, are very rich in color pigments and therefor used more frequently in foodstuff as natural colors and in health supplements after extracting specific compounds.
Our Nordic lingonberries/Nordiska lingon (Vaccinium vitis-idaea) are very rich in proanthocyanidins and reservatrol. Our Hordic cloudberries/Nordiska hjortron (Rubus chamaemorus) contain plenty of vitamin C and E, as well as fibres and nutients, just to name a few.
