Freeze-dried cranberry powder is the perfect addition to smoothies, raw porridges and sauces for a tangy flavour – just let your imagination run wild! However, the delicious berry flavour and beautiful colour are not the only things that make cranberry powder so attractive. What’s the real magic of cranberry powder? Let’s take a closer look at this powerful berry powder and find out!
Cranberry powder – a true vitamin bomb
Cranberries are bursting with vitamins, being an excellent source of vitamins A, C, E, K1 and beta-carotene, as well as being rich in minerals such as manganese and copper. In addition, cranberries are high in phenols and anthocyanins, which have strong anti-inflammatory effects, which help in case you have liver, vision or bladder problems. Cranberries are also rich in essential antioxidants, which have anti-ageing and memory-enhancing properties.
An excellent remedy for urinary tract infections
Cranberries are rich in tannins, which give these juicy berries the ability to protect you from and treat urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections. Tannic acids are made up of powerful compounds called proanthocyanidins, which prevent bacteria such as E.coli and H.Pylori from sticking to the walls of the urinary and digestive tracts, thus helping to both prevent infection and, should disease occur, to quickly and effectively overcome it.
An effective aid in case of inflammations
Cranberries have amazing anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, as well as natural antibiotic effects. Cranberries contain one of the strongest vasodilators, which opens up congested bronchial passages, making cranberries indispensable in the healing of any upper respiratory condition. These acidic berries, and the powder made of them, also help to strengthen the body’s overall resistance.

Why choose freeze-dried powder?
Freeze-drying takes place at a very low temperature (below 40 degrees), which ensures that all the necessary nutrients remain and no vitamins or minerals are destroyed. The process preserves not only the nutrients but also the flavour and colour, making freeze-dried powder practically equivalent to fresh berries. The freeze-drying process simply removes about 98% of the water from the raw material, resulting in a food product that is up to 90% lighter, but of extremely high nutritional value. As the powder is much more concentrated and therefore many times more nutritious, just a few spoonfuls are enough! It is also convenient and easy to store and transport, as it is light in weight and does not take up much space.
