What are Elderberries?
Elderberries are the fruit of the flowering plant known as Sambucus, more commonly referred to as elder or elderflower. The full scientific name of the most common variant, from which we get the majority of our elderberries.
Elderberries are packed with nutrients including minerals like iron, potassium, phosphorus, and copper, as well as vitamins, such as vitamin A, B, and C, as well as proteins and dietary fiber. They also have beneficial organic compounds that function as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents in the body, they are one powerful berry!

Meet our Ingredients:
Cinnamon - We include cinnamon in one of our recipes due to its anti-inflammatory properties as well as additional antioxidants. One person in our family does not like cinnamon so that is why we leave it out of one of our recipes!
Ginger - Ginger also contains many antioxidants and is known for helping fight infections naturally.
Lemon Juice - An excellent source of vitamin C and also helps in the preservation process of our non-frozen variety.
Stevia - A wonderful substitute for sugar, yet adds the sweetness needed to make elderberry syrup palatable for even the most discerning toddler!
Evaporated Cane Juice - Evaporated cane sugar is a less-processed, more nutritious form of cane sugar. Used in small amounts it improves the flavor and preservation of our elderberry syrup.
