NUTRIPHY® Bilberries

Nordic region or Europe origin?

Market challenge

Bilberries can be harvested in various places around the world, such as China, North America and Europe. Regardless of the berry origins, the market demands full traceability on the exact bilberry type:

  • Chinese variety (Vaccinium uliginosum) 

  • European wild-harvested berry (Vaccinium myrtillus)

  • American (Vaccinium corymbosum, Vaccinium angustifolium)

Chr. Hansen’s solution

Our Bilberry product range offers full documentation by using bilberries originating exclusively in Europe, with a possible further selection from Scandinavia/NORDIC region only.
We offer full traceability of plant extracts belonging to the NUTRIPHY® range all along the supply chain, from the raw materials to the final product complying with all required production standards. In addition we do not hesitate to disclose the analytical methods used to standardize the extracts, and are also opened to discuss other assays needs with our customers.
