Organic Sea Buckthorn Berries (2.12 oz)

Hippocrates Farm


Sea buckthorn, known as Hippophaes in Greece (pronounced "e-pof-i-es" and meanign "bright horse") is an amazing native, Greek herb and virtual superfood. It's so called because of the reviving effects it had when Alexander the Great and his men would feed it to horses that were wounded in battle.

Sea buckthorn berries are a tart fruit with a hint of sweetness, and they are especially prized for their nutrition. The berries are extremely high in vitamin C (around 12 times more than an orange) and other antioxidants. They also contain all four omega fatty acids, and even vitamin B12, which is typically only found in animal products. In fact, sea buckthorn is considered one of the most nutritious and vitamin-rich foods in the world.

These organic, dried sea buckthorn berries are produced by Hippocrates Farm in mystical Meteora. They were awarded 1st prize by European Innovation in the functional foods category. You can enjoy these superfood berries on their own, like any other dried fruit, or use them as a topping for yogurt, breakfast foods, or a slightly sweet addition to salads or rice pilafs.

Interesting but I like modern dried fruit better.

These are a mini currant in flavor and texture, but with a little seed inside. Interesting as an ancient fruit. But you understand why people went to eating bigger currants, raisins, and sultanas in the millennia that followed. The seed is a little bothersome and the fruit itself is very small. Good over yogurt. Worth getting if you want to taste an ancient food.
