What is it?

But what kind of fruit could this be? We all know what roses are. They are herbaceous shrubs that grow in temperate areas around the world. There are over 100 species of roses and one species—a wild rose plant called Rosa Canina—produces blossoms which develop into fruits we call rosehips. Which part of the rose can rosehips be found? The rounded part of the flower right under the petals is where you’ll find rosehips. Its flesh has a taste similar to rose petals, plums and sour apples all at once. The inner seeds though, are not fit to be eaten by humans as it has hairs which can irritate our intestines. It was rumored in the 17th century Great Britain that rosehips had been prescribed as a herbal tea, to help soothe soar throat and colds. When there were no oranges available, tons of rosehips were used to make jams, jellies and “rosehip syrup” as a source of Vitamin C.

What are its nutritional content and health benefits?

Plenty of research is still needed to prove all the claimed health benefits of rosehips. But several key studies on its nutritional content have shed light into the many health benefits this amazing fruit can give us.

Boosts the immune system and helps reduce risks of infections.Rosehips contain loads of Vitamin C. It has 60X as much Vitamin C as an orange. This important Vitamin C gives a huge contribution as remedy of colds, flu, cough and other infections caused by imbalanced oxidative stress.

Protection of Cells from Oxidative Stress. Naturally, body produces free radicals but there are factors that can likely accelerate their production and may cause imbalance between free radical and antioxidant activity. Thus may contribute to the development of such chronic conditions, like cancer, diabetese and heart disease. Factors like obesity are prone to heart disease but with Rosehip being rich of antioxidants – research shows that taking a drink with rosehip powder daily over the course of six weeks contributes protection of cells from oxidative stress.

We also hold the approval of EU organic certification bodies to guarantee our clients that we have not used pesticides or any harmful chemicals on our roses at any point throughout their growth and processing.
Timing of the harvest is important in producing world class quality rosehip powder. We only harvest our hips when their texture is firm and their color is at their brightest. We do not include shriveled, under ripe or overripe rosehips.

Rosehips naturally contain a dense amount of Vitamin C. However, much of it is destroyed in the manufacturing process. The result is a declined quality of rosehip powder.We take extra care to avoid this by air-drying our rosehips, making sure the temperature stays under 42 degrees Celsius. This way, all the nutrients in the hips are retained.

All the love and skills we use to grow, harvest and process our rosehip powder resulted in a product with a flavor unlike no other in the market. Enjoy our raw, organic rosehip powder in juices, teas, soups, jams, jellies and other recipes.
