Organic strawberry powder FD
Strawberries from organic certified agriculture are carefully sorted, stemmed, and washed. During the gentle freeze drying process all natural, fruity properties like colour, smell and taste are preserved.
After this the berries are milled to this 100% pure fruit powder without use of any carrier substances. Due to the vitamin-preserving freeze-drying process, the taste and contents are optimally preserved. The organic strawberry powder consists of 100% organic strawberries and does not contain any diluting carriers. Approx. 10kg of fresh organic strawberries yield 1kg of Organic Strawberry Fruit Powder FD, which makes it very economical. Since organic strawberries are naturally fruity and sweet, the powder does not contain any added sugar. Furthermore, no flavourings or aromas are used in the production of this powder. The strawberries used are 100% from controlled organic cultivation.

Fields of Application
10 kg PE bag in carton
The strawberry has been appreciated by humans since the Stone Age and was cultivated on large areas in Europe in the Middle Ages. However, the native wild strawberry is quite small. In the 17th century, French settlers discovered a strawberry with somewhat larger fruits in the area around the St. Lawrence River (today's border area between the USA and Canada). This was crossed with another type of strawberry from Chile, resulting in the large-fruited garden strawberry that is popular today. Commercial cultivation began around 1840 in Germany.
The ripe fruits contain more vitamin C than oranges and lemons. They are also rich in folic acid, calcium, magnesium and iron. The low calorie content should also be mentioned.
The world's largest producers of strawberries are China, the USA and Mexico. In Austria, a total of 13,580t of strawberries were produced in 2019.
Why is the strawberry a nut?
The strawberry is not a berry or even a vegetable, but a so-called aggregate nut. This comes from the small seeds on the surface of the berries.
