Nutritional values

Anthocyanins are responsible for the beautiful color of this low-sugar jelly. These secondary plant substances, which are abundantly contained in the blackberries and elderberries, strengthen the immune system.

 

Do not boil the berries longer than necessary. The shorter they are heated, the more vitamin C is retained.
