Our cranberry powder has no additives, and nothing has been removed from the berries but water. Our Cranberry Powder dissolves easily into waters, teas, or juices, and can be stirred into yogurts, ice creams, added to smoothies, baked goods, and more. 

The Cranberry: an American Legend

Cranberries are native to North America, and Native Americans used them as food, in ceremonies, as a colorful dye, and medicinally. It was the Pilgrims, however, that gave the small, reddish berries the name we know today. They referred to it as the "crane-berry" due to the resemblance of the small pink blossoms to the head and bill of the Sandhill crane. These settlers adopted the cranberry, using it in the same was as the Native Americans did: as a food, medicine, and bartering tool. American mariners and whalers carried cranberries aboard their vessels to prevent scurvy on their voyages to sea. In 1816, the first commercial cranberry crop was cultivated by Revolutionary War veteran Henry Hall. Today over 40,000 acres of cranberries are harvested in the U.S. every year. 

Health Benefits of Cranberries

Cranberries have long held a reputation for a natural remedy for urinary tract infections, but the health benefits of cranberries extend far beyond that. Cranberries contain a unique subclass of flavonoids called proanthocyanidins (PACs). These PACs are unique, and abundant in cranberries, offering powerful antioxidant protection against free radical damage. 

Cardiovascular Benefits

Research suggests that the flavonoids and polyphenols in cranberries may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering "bad" LDL cholesterol, raising "good" HDL cholesterol levels, improving vascular function and reducing blood pressure. Cranberry has been shown to improve risk factors for cardiovascular disease among high-risk populations, including those with Type-2 diabetes. 

Antioxidant Properties

Cranberries are a rich source of flavonoids, incuding anthocyanins, flavonoids, and proanthocyanidins (PACs), naturally occuring compounds with strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help neutralize the free radical damage that can cause destructive inflammation and lead to premature aging or illness. The phenolic phytochemicals found in cranberries, including phenolic acids like ellagic acid, also contribute to the cranberry's powerful antioxidant activity by inhibiting carcinogens from binding to DNA.

Antibacterial Properties and Urinary Tract Health

One of the reasons cranberries have long been used to support urinary tract health is their natural anti-bacterial properties. Research reveals that the PACs present in cranberries are able to restrict the adherance of E. Coli and other bacteria to tissues in the body, preventing infections. These PACs can prevent both anti-biotic susceptible and anti-biotic resistant strains of E. coli from adhering to the bladder, preventing urinary tract infections even in those who suffer from reoccuring or chronic infections. Cranberry's reputation as a natural treatement for urinary tract infections has been well earned.

Preliminary trials suggest that the PAC's in cranberries can also interfere with the adhesion of Helicobacter pylori, a leading cause of stomach ulcers. 

Cranberries and Dental Health

The PACs present in cranberries carry their anti-adhesion benefits all the way to our mouths. Recent research shows that oral products that contain cranberry may help protect against dental and oral bacteria, including those responsible for periodontal gum disease. PACs helped reduce the number of bacteria in the oral cavity, and more research continues to determine if cranberries can also inhibit gingival bacteria.  

Cranberries and Brain Support

Current research is being done to determine if cranberries antioxidant properties extend to protect brain cells from free radical damage, and subsequent motor and cognitive function losses. Preliminary unpublished results indicate that there will be compelling evidence for cranberry as a protective agent from neurological damage.

Whole Food Cranberries vs Isolated Phytonutrients

While the unique phytonutrients present in cranberries are receiving attention for their health benefitting attributes, research suggests that the greatest benefits comes from the combination of phytonutrients taken as a whole, complete, synergistic group instead of just one isolated componant. What this means is that the health benefits of the cranberry, many attributed to PAC's, are best taken in the form of consuming actual, whole-food cranberries, cranberry juice, or cranberry juice powders. 

What is Cranberry Powder?

Cranberry Powder comes from tangy, whole cranberries that have been wild harvested and then freeze-dried at the peak of freshness. This process of freeze-drying maintains the unique, synergistic blend of cranberry nutrients. Cranberry Powder is a vibrant pink color, and is water soluble to easily dissolve into liquids.

Our Cranberry Powder has a shelf life of two years, if stored away from sunlight and moisture, and kept below 86° (F) / 30° (C). 

How to Use Cranberry Powder

Cranberry Powder can be used in a number of ways to bring you all of the flavor, aroma, and nutritional benefits of the cranberry. From simple to elaborate, the possibilities are endless. 

  • • Add to water and ice for a crisp, refreshing vitamin water
  • • Add to electrolyte water for an all-natural sports drink
  • • Add to hot or iced tea
  • • Prepare a "simple syrup" by adding to an all-natural sweetener and water, use it to flavor mixed drinks or make shaved ice creations
  • • Add cranberry powder to baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, muffins and cookies
  • • Make a gluten-free treat by adding to whipped egg whites for a cranberry meringue
  • • Add it to your Superfood smoothie

    I use this instead of purchasing bottled cranberry juice. Since it is raw, it is very tart (which I like!). I add a little honey or liquid Stevia if I want a more traditional taste. I've used it as a cranberry drink with either regular or coconut water, add it to smoothies, made iced cranberry lemon/lime mint tea and cranberry pomegranate tea, for vinegrette salad dressing, and recently added it with crushed berries and coconut water for homemade popsicles. The powder gets a little clumpy after you first add liquid but just whisk it for a bit and the clumps disappear. I usually make a pitcher which lasts a few days.
