ABOUT HASKAPA BERRY POWDER
We wanted to create a product that would capture haskap’s unique nutritional content and be available to enjoy throughout the year. Haskapa Berry Powder is an antioxidant-rich powerhouse made from gently freeze-dried haskap berries to preserve their natural goodness. It contains up to three times more antioxidants than blueberries. Each 100g pouch of powder contains around 800 haskap berries (which is around 30 days worth of servings) and nothing else.
HOW TO USE IT
Haskapa Berry Powder can be added to numerous foods and drinks – anything from sprinkled over fruit, stirred into yoghurt, added to your morning smoothie or porridge. We also love this superberry powder in our Californian Frozen Haskapa Berry Bowl. Read more ways to enjoy Haskapa Berry Powder here.
The berry’s deep blue-purple skin and crimson flesh makes it rich in health promoting anthocyanins. Haskap berries also have a unique anthocyanin profile, with one specific anthocyanin called cyanidin-3-glucoside, known as C3G, making around 85% of the total anthocyanin content.
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.
OUR MEDICAL RESEARCH DIRECTOR SAYS…
“More than ever before people are looking for ways to live a healthy and happy life, for longer. A key to this ambition is a combination of heart and cognitive health. One way to support these goals is by boosting our intake of haskap berries.
Scientists from Reading University recently published a ground-breaking clinical study looking at the acute effects of haskap in older adults. The results showed improvements in memory (word recall and recognition) and lower diastolic blood pressure.
At Haskapa, we are continuing to work with scientists around the world to research the potential positive effects of haskap berries to help prevention of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, cognitive decline, plus sports endurance and recovery”.
