Elderberries are high anti-oxidant bead sized berries enjoyed widely for their ability to boost the immune system, protect the body against bacterial infection, and prevent the development of diabetes. Elderberries also contain a ton of nutrients including minerals like Iron, Potassium, and Copper. These nutrient rich super berries can be used in cooked foods like cakes, muffins, and oatmeal; they can also be enjoyed in very hot water as a tea or in making a natural cough syrup. The elderberry is best brewed with other tea ingredients because it does not always provide a very strong flavor.

In Finland, berries are part of the traditional diet significantly contributing to the intake of flavonoids and other phenolic compounds. Compositional data on phenolic compounds in berries has been rapidly accumulating and included in the national food composition database. Among the different bioactive substances in berries, phenolic compounds including flavonoids, tannins, and phenolic acids have received considerable interest due to their effects in food and health. A great amount of in vitro evidence exists showing that berry phenolics are powerful antioxidants. However, the antioxidant effect of berry phenolics is strongly dependent on the choice of berry raw material, as the antioxidant activity differs between the different phenolic constituents, including anthocyanins, ellagitannins, and proanthocyanidins. In foods, the antioxidant effect is also influenced by the structure of food.
