Cloudberry

cloudberry1.jpg

Cloudberry is a creeping bramble growing in peatlands and bog areas of circumboreal regions of the Scandinavia, the Siberia and the Alaska. It can withstand temperatures down to well below -40°C. Wild growing cloudberries are highly valued and they are the favourite wild fruit of the Lapone. Reaching maturity, cloudberry exhibits a golden colour with a nice taste and they are used in jam, desserts and
liquors.


Important source of vitamin C for the Sami community and the Alaskan Inuits, it was a good cure against scurvy. This is one of the most scarce and expensive berry in the World due to the limited season of harvest and the limited accessibility.


Cloudberries are well adapted to boreal regions thanks their secondary metabolites which act as a shield against environmental attack: The amount of soluble carbohydrates in the plant is correlated to the resistance to intense frost. Thanks to antioxidant properties, vitamins A, C, E and ellagitannins counteract deleterious effects of the sun.
