Re-Fresh Superfood Sea Buckthorn powder is made from 100% wild-growing sea buckthorn collected in Finland. The berry is not sprayed or fertilized, the product does not contain foreign substances and additives used in extracts, drinks, and tablets.
Sea buckthorn is rich in vitamins E and C, which help protect skin cells from oxidative stress and avoid depletion. Potassium contributes to healthy functioning of muscles and the nervous system and maintenance of normal pressure. Ground buckthorn powder has a distinctively fresh and full-bodied taste and aroma.
Sea buckthorn powder Re-Fresh Superfood preserves all the qualities of a true unprocessed product, unlike many other processed fiber products on the market. During the production of the product, the berries are thoroughly dried to achieve optimum moisture content, and then crushed into a vitamin-rich powder that is easily absorbed by the body. Water is slowly “extracted” from the berries in a special room where warm air circulates around the berries. Since at low temperatures (RAWfood) it is necessary to extract a lot of liquid from the whole berry, the process takes about 2-3 days. The end result is preservation, rather than destruction, of all nutrient-sensitive nutrients and vitamins from the skin, pulp, juice, and seeds that are sensitive to processing methods. In addition, this production method is optimal for preserving the taste properties of berries.
Removing moisture from berries is also beneficial from an environmental point of view since berries do not have to be frozen, which significantly reduces the weight and volume of the finished product. In addition, powder means long shelf life without the aid of preservatives.
* When Re-Fresh Superfood measures radiation in its Scandinavian berries, the result is in the range of 0-49 Bq. This means a complete absence of radiation. Benchmark measurements of berries in Eastern Europe provide results of around 800 Bq.
