What distinguishes the elderberry?
The black elder (botanical name: Sambucus nigra) is a shrub or small tree up to 11 metres high with strong branching and is native to Central Europe. According to legend, the elder bush used to be considered the "tree of life and clans" and was said to have magical and protective powers for humans and animals. Therefore, the shrub was planted on every farm.
Frequently asked questions
Are elderberries poisonous?
Sambunigrin is contained in the leaves, the bark, in unripe berries as well as in the seeds of ripe berries. This can lead to indisposition, vomiting and other symptoms of poisoning in humans and animals. By heating, sambunigrin decomposes and the berries lose their toxicity. This has already happened during processing into fruit juice.
What are the ingredients in Rabenhorst Elderberry juice?
Our pure elderberry juice contains 100 % elderberries that have only been pressed once. Since we hardly remove any natural cloudy substances from the juice during the juice production, the naturally occurring secondary plant substances of the elderberries remain largely contained. To preserve the secondary plant substances as much as possible, we use a special filling technique. The heat effect on the product and the oxygen input into the product are kept as low as possible. This is how we at Rabenhorst guarantee the genuine natural taste of our pure juice from first pressings.
Where does the dark colour of the berries come from?
Responsible for the colouring of elderberries is the violet pigment sambucyanin - a flavonoid which belongs to the secondary plant substances. It is mainly found in the skin of the berries. Due to their very intense colour, elderberries are very suitable as a natural dye for colouring clothes.
