In China the schisandra berry is known as wu wie zi, or the five flavour berry. Traditional Chinese medicine links each of the flavours mentioned above to an element. The schisandra berries therefore contain the elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
In China, the schisandra is considered to be a medicinal plant and is used for all kinds of complaints. It is reputed to be a fountain of youth, boosting vitality and libido for both men and women.
Dried schisandra berries, especially in wild growing berries, contain the same nutrients as fresh schisandra berries, in a concentrated form. The full power of nature.
Schisandra berries are highly complex, as they are one of the very few natural foods that contain all 5 flavours - sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. This might challenge our overworked taste buds at first, but after the second or third berry you will become accustomed to the taste. The dried berries are dark blue to black in colour with a dark purple tinge.
The fruit flesh surrounds seeds that are dried together with the berry, giving the edible berries a crunchy texture.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic schisandra berries exclusively from a remote mountainous region in Uzbekistan / Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic farming and are worked by the local organic farmers at harvesting time only. The farmers in this area have complied with organic cultivation criteria for many years and are proud of their contribution towards sustaining the natural balance.
After harvesting, the schisandra berries are carefully cleaned to retain their full aroma and texture and then gently dried using solar energy. The drying process is very eco-friendly, using a solar drying method that has a minimal impact on the product.
The schisandra berries are pressure treated and laser cleaned in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic schisandra berries are checked individually.
