How can I use Arctic Flavors berry powders?
Just use your imagination and taste instinct! You can start by mixing it with your yogurt, breakfast bowl, or smoothie. If you exercise regularly, you can add it to your protein/recovery shake to boost your antioxidant intake. If you like to be more creative at home, you can use it in your oatmeal, puddings, cheesecake, ice cream, etc. For more creative ideas, you can check our recipes section.
How much can I use?
We recommend 1-2 teaspoons per day, which is equal to 50-100 g (or a handful) of fresh wild berries! However, if you are making something that requires more or less of the powder, please use your intuition and palate to adjust the amount you use.
How does each powder taste?
Our powders taste exactly like wild berries from the Arctic forests of Finland do! We do not add any sugars, artificial flavors, or preservatives. Below is a tart-sweet “meter” for each of our berry powders.
Are there any preservatives, added sugar, or flavors in your products?
Absolutely NOT! Our berry powders are made of 100% wild whole berries, which are hand-picked at the right season and immediately freeze-dried just for you.
Are your products certified organic?
We are not certified as ‘organic’. However, all of our powders are made of berries grown and picked in the Arctic forests of Finland, which are known for being the cleanest in the world! In fact, ~99% of Finland’s forests could be certified organic without changing their management practices.
What is the difference between wild and farmed berries?
There are multiple differences between wild and farmed berries, especially when it comes to their size, taste, and nutritional value. For example, wild blueberries (also known as low-bush blueberries or bilberries) are smaller in size, have a richer taste, and much higher nutritional value than farmed blueberries (also known as high-bush blueberries). You can read more about the difference between wild and farmed blueberries in our blog post here.
What method do you use to process your berries?
Our berries are freeze-dried immediately after they are hand-picked from the forest. This method allows for the preservation of their nutritional value to the maximum possible. You can learn more about the freeze-drying method of blueberries in our blog post here.
Are there any special storing conditions?
We recommend that you keep your berry powders in dry conditions and away from the sunlight. Please close the air sealed bag carefully after each use. No need to refrigerate. If the powder becomes crumbled or solid, you can use a fork to easily solve the problem.
Why is your price higher than fresh/frozen berries available in the stores?
There are multiple factors going into our pricing. However, we believe that our price is actually lower than the price of fresh/frozen berries you find in stores. Firstly, we would like to clarify that a teaspoon (~5g) of our powder equals a handful of fresh or frozen berries (50g). Therefore, we use 500g of berries to make a 50g of powder. In addition to this, our berries are wild and hand-picked by our local collaborators just for you. In fact, it takes about 30 min of hard work to pick 500g of wild berries that go into each of our bags.
Further, we believe that our product is more environmentally friendly than farmed berries because we do not use any fertilizers, water, or any other farming practices; they are just growing in the forest, their natural environment. In addition, our powders do not need any special storing conditions such as refrigeration, and therefore, there is no need for electricity consumption.
Lastly, because they have 1/10 of the weight that fresh/frozen berries have, their transportation impact and carbon footprint are minimal. We believe that our berry powders are reasonably priced and much cheaper than fresh/frozen berries. Just think that a 50g berry powder will keep you going for 1 month if you use our recommended serving size daily.
