Raspberry grows as a prickly bush, both in home gardens and wild in the banks of streams, edges of forests and roads, enjoying especially warm sunny places. The berry is an aggregate drupe, with approximately 100 small drupes in one “berry”. It is sweet and fragrant, with a sophisticated taste.
Raspberry is one of the most fibre-rich berries in our assortment. It has dietary fibre of 7,7 g/100 g. It is a good source of vitamins C and E. Raspberry should not be processed too much not to lose its nutritional values. Freezing the berry preserves the nutritional values well.
Polarica’s organic strawberries are cultivated and packaged in our production facility in Poland. We also import raspberries from Serbia and Chile. Finnish Food Authority recommends boiling imported berries for at least two minutes before consuming them.
This aromatic berry is often made into jams, marmalades and juice. It suits well also for baked goods. Raspberry is an excellent fit with chocolate cakes but goes equally well in pastries.
