For our rosehip powder in raw food quality, we use hand-picked, ripe rose hips from certified organic cultivation in their shell. The fruits are dryed at temperatures below 40 °C and gently ground afterwards. Mechanical grounding without any additional heat preserves the valuable ingredients of rosehip particularly well. The same applies for its beneficial effects.
Rosehip (Rosa Canina/Rosa Rubiginosa) is a wild rose bush which has been cultivated in South America for almost two centuries and is appreciated for its high content of vitamin C. The bushes can mainly be found in valleys of the Andes which offer ideal climatic conditions for the plant. The bushes can grow up to a height of 1 to 3 metres.
Compared to powders from deoiled kernels, powders from the whole kernel, pulp and rosehip shells have an exceptionally high content of vitamins of 400 mg per 100 g. Our rosehip powder is a purely plant-based, vegan, gluten- and lactose-free product without the addition of preservatives, colourings or other additives.
Uses of organic rosehip powder
Organic rosehip powder has a mild, slightly sour taste and is ideal for preparing teas, smoothies, protein shakes, yogurt, muesli or juices. You can also use the powder for soups or as baking ingredient.
As the powder reacts to humidity and warmth, it should be kept in a cool, dark and dry place.
Vitamin C – valuable and heat-resistant
Vitamin C can withstand temperatures of up to 190 °C without losing its valuable nutrients and characteristics. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) released the following approved health claims regarding vitamin C:
- contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise
- contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, teeth and skin
- contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
- contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
- contributes to normal psychological function
- contributes to the normal function of the immune system
- contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
- contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
- increases iron absorption
The health claims refer to a specific minimum amount of vitamin C. For the abovementioned positive effects to occur, a consumption of at least 12 mg per day is required. However, the EU recommends a daily intake of vitamin C of 80 g. This is the average amount that is needed to cover the daily requirement of vitamin C. The intake of vitamin C should not go below the daily minimum of 12 mg.
