Haskapa | Freeze Dried Haskap Berry Powder (100g)
Introducing new Haskapa - Freeze Dried Haskap Berry Powder.
Made purely from berries and nothing else, the haskap is one of the most nutritious superberry discoveries in recent years. Their deep blue skin and crimson flesh give haskaps 3 times the antioxidants, 4 times the anthocyanins and 5 times the flavour of blueberries. Anthocyanins are naturally occurring plant pigments that give fruit and vegetables their deep purple, blue and red colours. The potential health benefits of eating anthocyanin-rich foods are well documented as leading to lowered chronic disease risk.
At Haskapa, we've been growing haskap berries on our farm in Nova Scotia for many years. Our freeze-dried powder captures the nutritional benefits of haskaps in an easy to use and store format. With the contents of over 800 berries per 100g pouch, 1-2 teaspoons in your smoothie, yogurt or oats is equivalent to eating a handful of these extraordinary berries, giving a powerful anthocyanin boost.
Haskapa Berry Powder is vegan, gluten-free and kosher.
Every pouch of Haskapa Berry Powder contains 100g of powder, which is around a month's supply.
Shelf life is approximately 12 months. Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
WHAT ARE HASKAP BERRIES?
The haskap berry is an edible blue honeysuckle native to northern hemisphere countries including Canada, Japan and Russia, with the botanical name Lonicera caerulea. Haskap berries grow on deciduous leafy bushes which have an amazing ability to survive hostile, freezing northern winters. The berries are oval-rectangular in shape, looking a little like elongated blueberries.
WHAT DOES IT TASTE AND LOOK LIKE?
Haskapa Berry Powder has a unique, zesty flavour combination of tangy and sweet, plus a naturally strong berry colour which gives your food an anthocyanin power of purple daily boost.
WHY IS HASKAP BEING HAILED AS THE NEXT SUPERBERRY?
Haskap berries also have a unique anthocyanin profile, with one specific beneficial anthocyanin called cyanidin-3-glucoside, known as C3G, making up around 85% of the total anthocyanin content. They also contain a range of other polyphenols including phenolic acids e.g. chlorogenic acid and other flavonoids such as quercetin.
HOW DO I EAT IT?
Haskapa berry powder is super-versatile and tastes great. Use as you would other fruit or berry powders - simply a teaspoon in your smoothie, shake, or stirred into breakfast cereal, porridge or yogurt. Haskap berry powder is also brilliant in baking and desserts - adding natural colour and a unique delicious taste.
WHY IS IT GOOD FOR ME?
Research suggests that eating a diet rich in anthocyanins may be associated with reducing the risk of many chronic diseases including high blood pressure, heart attacks, type 2 diabetes, and cognitive decline as we age. One of the main actions of anthocyanins is dilation of blood vessels with an associated increase in blood flow and oxygen delivery to cells.
Anthocyanin effects: Antioxidant, Cardioprotective, Neuroprotective, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-diabetic
