Our dried/milled berries have all the natural oils that are found in the seabuckthorn berry.
Solberry Seabuckthorn berries have extraordinarily high oil content (Omegas 3, 6, 9 and specifically Omega 7).
We do not remove oils from our dried berries and as such our "powdered" berries will clump due to the incorporated oils. Solberry dried and milled seabuckthorn has all Omega oils and nutrients and it is not free flowing, but may create clumping and it is best to keep our dried berries in the freezer or refrigerator.
It takes 9 kg of fresh berries to make 1 kg of dried and milled seabuckthorn. Dried seabuckthorn is loaded with nutrients such as Omega 7, Vitamin E and Carotenoids (antioxidants) which are more concentrated.
Solberry Seabuckthorn is not a supplement, but an incredibly nutritious food. Nutritional analysis for Omega 7 obtained from Medallion Laboratories, 9000 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis.
The fatty acid profile showed that Solberry dried/milled seabuckthorn berries have a substantial amount of monounsaturated fatty acid (47.19%) followed by saturated (39.98%) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (12.78%).
Dried Solberry seabuckthorn is rich in Palmitoleic (36.48 %), Linoleic (11.65%) and Oleic (10.42 %) acids. Monounsaturated fatty acids are linked to potential lowering of the low density lipoprotein cholesterol.
The dried seabuckthorn has total carotene content of 58.12%, and it is considerably high in trans- beta (31.08%) and beta carotene (18.54%), respectively.
Minerals are very important for better body function. Solberry seabuckthorn contains essential minerals such as calcium (58 mg/100 g), potassium (1120 mg/100 g), magnesium (41.4 mg/100 g), phosphorus (86.2 mg/100 g), sodium (21.7 mg/100 g) and iron (4.15 mg/100 g).
It contains Phytosterols mainly from the beta sito-sterol, known to reduce bad cholesterol.
Solberry Seabuckthorn is rich in proteins (albumin and globulin).
Serum albumin accounts for 55% of blood proteins, and is a major contributor to maintaining the osmotic pressure of plasma to assist in the transport of lipids and steroid hormones. Globulins make up 38% of blood proteins and transport ions, hormones, and lipids assisting in immune function.
