Tasmanian Pepperberry is the fruit from an Australian shrub native to the cool forests of Tasmania.
Used for centuries by our First Peoples, it is known for its therapeutic properties and as a potent superfood.
Due to its high antioxidant, amino acid and polyphenol profile, it was used to treat skin disorders, venereal disease, colic and stomach ache.
Studies have also shown it to be high in vitamin E and folate and to have free radical scavenging activity at least four times higher than blueberries. This is despite being very low in ascorbic acid.
As it aids in the the slow absorption of glucose, it may also help to stabilise blood sugar levels.
