What is Cranberry Extract 36:1?
The cranberry is a low-growing, woody, perennial plant with small, alternate, ovate leaves. The plant produces stems or vines up to 6 feet long, with short vertical branches, 2 - 8 inches in height that grow from buds, each containing as many as seven flowers. Cranberries have been used for many year. Native people consumed cranberries as part of their diet, as well as used them in ceremonies, and for medicinal purposes. More recently it has been determined that cranberries are typically excellent sources of vitamin C, vitamin E, phosphorous and anthocyanidins, making them a popular, healthy choice. However, cranberries do have a distinctive bitter taste and this typically results in the need for adding a large amount of sugar or artificial sweeteners when turning them into juice, which to an extent negates the health benefits of the original cranberry! Our Cranberry Extract 36:1 is an incredibly potent powder with each 2.5g serving accounting for an amazing equivalent of 90g fresh cranberry, more than one of your five a day!

How does Cranberry Extract 36:1 taste?
Our Cranberry Extract has a distinctive, tangy, ever so slightly bitter taste that is associated with raw cranberries. As a result, it is best when blended into homemade smoothies or mixed with protein shakes. It is completely palatable on it's own, just be aware that the powder is pure with no added instantising agents, so it will not completely dissolve if it is just mixed with water.
