Use of berry powders
Why and how to use berry powders?
It is commonly known that berries are real superfoods that are good for your health. They have antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and contain antioxidants that are important for everyone regardless of age. Berries are also a good source of dietary fiber and different vitamins. Berries are the most researched of our products, we have carefully selected the sources of information we offer, even though the internet is full of information.
The best way to use berries is of course fresh from the forests. If you can't do that a very good alternative is to have them in powdered form.
We suggest you to always keep berry powder on your dining table in a small glass jar or a shaker with large holes. It can then be easily added to yogurts, cereals, muesli, and oatmeal. A quick way to consume berry powder is to add it to your tea or water to make juice of it. One tablespoon (10 g) of berry powder is equivalent to about 90 g of fresh berries. We recommend to have 1 - 2 teaspoonfuls daily.
Easy & natural way to add flavor to your food and take a step towards a healthier diet
Because of the easy and natural way to add color, flavor and health to your food, we encourage to take berry powder with you to work or even on trips (trekking, sailing, picnic outings, barbecuing). Keep the berry powder in an airtight container so that you can take it along even in warm or humid weather, and even on a boat.
Berries and berry powders are a good supplement to the dough for breads, tarts, cakes or buns. Powders can be used as a natural colorant in baking, and for decorating and coating of bakings. The water or milk for the dough can also be replaced with berry juice (made of berry powder). Healthier delicacies and snacks (ice cream, energy balls, marmalade, jelly, coated truffles, flavoured chocolate) are supertasty when made with berry powders.
Really, there are no limits on how to use berry powders. You can mix different flavors according to your own liking and sprinkle the plain or mixed powder on top of almost any food. Powders can be used well in salads, salad dressings, and spicing different main dishes (marinating, coating). If you use powder as spice, be sure to add it only after cooking of the food to preserve all vitamins.
There are plenty of good reasons to start using berry powders in your diet, and to buy pure Finnish products. In Finland, we have one of the purest and most abundant freshwater resources, and according The World Health Organization (in 2018) Finland had the cleanest air in the world. Food security in Finland is one of the top countries in the world (Global Food Security Index 2021). We have very high food hygiene standards and pure food.
The pure Finnish forests offer an abundance of wild berries, herbs, and mushrooms that you can eat. Eating them is a real sustainable act, because wild plants do not need irrigation, fertilizers, or any expensive equipment for processing. If you are lucky enough to be able to pick them fresh, don't leave them in the woods. If you live abroad and want to try something different, just place your order on our webstore.
