Frozen wild berries are a popular and convenient addition to recipes and dishes. Harvested at their peak ripeness, they are quickly frozen, preserving their flavor, texture, and nutritional value. We offer a range of wild berries, including strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, currants, cranberries, and sour cherries.

The most popular use of wild berries accompanies baked goods, various cakes, cookies, compotes, and tarts. Today, they are also used in smoothies and as an addition to cereals or yogurt. Frozen wild strawberries are also used to make various jams, preserves, and salads.
BENEFITS OF FROZEN FOREST FRUITS
One of the advantages of frozen forest fruits is that they are available all year round. Fresh forest fruits are usually only available in season, for a short time, and can be expensive. However, frozen wild berries are cheaper due to their larger quantities and can be kept in the freezer for long periods without losing quality. Frozen fruit is also an excellent source of natural nutrients. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Blueberries, for example, are high in antioxidants and to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Blueberries are enriched with vitamins C and K and minerals such as iron and zinc.

PICKING WILD BERRIES
Picking: picking fruit can be a fun and healthy activity. But it must be done in compliance with the law. They are found in different forest environments and in other parts of the world. During the season, they forage in the wild, but care should be taken to pick only a few fruits in one place to avoid destroying local resources.
Storage: after picking, the fruit is placed in the fridge to lower its temperature. Afterward, the fruit is frozen, the main aim being to prevent the growth of micro-organisms. However, the recommended final storage temperature is -18 degrees Celsius or lower.
Convenience: the main advantage of frozen forest fruits is that they can also be used out of season. This way, we can enjoy the refreshing flavors of wild berries even in winter without the season affecting their quality.
Diet: wild berries are low in calories and nutrients, making them an excellent choice for those on a diet. They are also naturally sweet and are a superb alternative to sugary snacks. Despite their sugar content, they taste fresh and naturally, which helps to refresh us, especially on hot summer days.
