Elderberries - Organic
**Elderberries are best consumed cooked, as cooking neutralizes the astringency and any potential toxins that naturally occur in seeds and stems of the berries.**
Elderberries can be consumed on their own or in a tea. They are also great on pancakes or in smoothies.
Due to their tasty flavour and amazing immune boosting benefits, elderberries have long been a folk remedy across North America, Europe, and parts of Asia and Africa. Elderberries contain amino acids, carotenoids, flavonoids, sugar, rutin, viburnic acid, vitamin A and B, and a large amount of vitamin C. The flavonoids in elderberries include quercetin, which is thought to have therapeutic properties, and anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants.
