Strawberry

The wild strawberry endemic in our region already served as a food for our ancestors in the Stone Age. The garden strawberry was created by crossing larger strawberry species from North and South America at the end of the 17th century.

Strawberries have a high vitamin C content and also contain numerous other bioactive substances. Antioxidants such as pelargonidin, ellagic acid and quercetin protect us from arteriosclerosis.

In numerous studies, these compounds have also shown anticancer effects.
