Meeker Red Raspberry Seed Powder - 5 lbs
Berry Beautiful Meeker red raspberry seed powder is milled from the seed cake that is produced when we cold-press our red raspberry seed for oil. It is a 100% pure, rich source of ellagitannins and ellagic acid. Meeker red raspberries are the number one source of dietary ellagic acid/ellagitannins. Ellagic acid and ellagitannins are concentrated in the seed.
- Exceptionally high anti-oxidant activity, primarily due to its high content of ellagitannins and Vitamin E
- The digestive system converts ellagitannins to ellagic acid
- Excellent source of fiber, calcium and iron
- No additives, enzymes, chemicals, solvents or process aids of any kind are used

How it's made
Meeker red raspberry seed powder's high concentration of ellagitannins and ellagic acid supports the bodies immune response. It also is a valuable source of dietary fiber and omega 3 fatty acid. As manufacturers of Meeker red raspberry products, we carefully control every step of production, from the fields where the raspberries are grown through all of the production steps. This allows Berry Beautiful to guarantee the purity, quality and ellagic acid/ellagitannin content of our Meeker red raspberry seed powder.
