Finland has well established reputation as a country of pristine nature. Finland’s relatively large geographical area compared to population leaves large areas of forest and nature untouched by human infrastructure. These areas are where our Finnish prod-
ucts originate. They grow in the wild, they are not grown. For when a plant grows among the daily challenges and natural threats of a wild forest, it develops all the necessary protective compounds to protect itself. Througout the history of mankind these compounds have been recognized and valued highly as medicine.
King of ORAC -the finnish Chaga
Laboratory measured 96800 ORAC
FinChaga Instant Chaga is an extract powder made with finnish, wild grown mushroom. The Chaga is extracted with hot water for average of 18 hours. This results in a thick ”tea” bursting with the antioxidant melanins and other valuable water soluble components, like the immunomodulating po-
lysaccharides. Quick drying stores all these nutrients to a brown powder which is 100% water soluble.
When 1/2 teaspoon of Instant Chaga is mixed with a cup of hot water, the Chaga tea is instantly ready.
Instant-Chaga is available in 28g dark glass jars available for private labeling or as an ingredient.
the wild variety from above the artic circle
Unlike most of the world's blueberry - our blueberry is actually bilberry. Why does it matter?
First - blueberry is usually grown in fields that are harvested. Bilberry is always wild and it is collected by hand in the forests of Finland.
Second - blueberry is a large berry with a white inside. The bilberry is small and it is thoroughly penetrated by intense blue/purple colour. This colour is the very antioxidant content of bilberry. It is much more nutritious than its cousin, the blueberry.
Freeze-dried bilberry is available as a ingredient, starting from 26,5 liters to full container loads.
THE Wild red superberry from the north
In finnish natural forest, lingonberry is the berry that grows alongside the bilberry. Together they are the most valued berries in Finland.
Lingonberry is actually more healthy than the famous bilberry. Although more acidic and not as delicious as the bilberry, there is a growing evidence that lingonberry is beating the game against other berries!
Main benefit areas of lingonberry are: Heart health, urinary tract health, allergies and overall antioxidant activity.
Freeze-dried lingonberry is available as a ingredient, starting from 26,5 liters to full container loads.
the most delicious berry of them all
We all know and love the strawberry! However, only few people have had the opportunity to taste the finnish strawberry..
Strawberries of Finland are a little smaller than usually, and they have very rich, delicious aroma.
The strawberries are freeze-dried using a special process that conserves the flavors and vitamin content up to 97% compared to fresh berry. When you take a bite of our dried strawberry, you literally cannot believe what you are tasting!
Freeze-dried strawberry is available as a ingredient, starting from 26,5 liters to full container loads.
Freeze-dried sea buckthorn
the powerful orange coloured superberry
Sea buckthorn is a berry which ranges in color from bright yellow to deep orange. It is very acidic in taste, and superhealthy!
Sea buckthorn is a very high source of Vitamin C. The freeze-dried berry can contain vitamin C up to 8000mg/100g. In addition to Vitamin C, the berry contains lots of carotenoids, the precursor to Vitamin A.
Freeze-dried sea buckthorn has an oil content of 23%. All of this oil is very healthy, and comprises mostly of Omega 7 -category. It is good for cholesterol levels and for mucuous membranes.
Freeze-dried sea buckthorn is available as a ingredient, starting from 26,5 liters to full container loads.
The nature of Finland is a very beautiful one, but ruthless in its beauty. The winter is long, cold and dark. This means the wild plant life wouldn't stand a chance if they didn't have a pool of protective nutrients to cover them. These nutrients will in turn benefit us, when we eat the berries.
From our berries only strawberry is cultivated. All the other berries and Chaga are wild harvested. They grow in the wild, without any "man made" protection and/or fertilizers.
When calculating all forests of Finland, including the forests next to large cities - the average forest is very, very pure. Actually a whopping 97,5% of all forest in Finland would be approved Certified Organic, if just the land owners would apply. Talk about clean and pure.
