The Quality of Manufacturing

Sambucol uses the same proprietary, naturally balanced elderberry juice and extraction process used in the published scientific studies. This distinct method of manufacturing preserves and maximises the naturally occurring health benefits of the berries to guarantee consistent, immune supporting properties in every serving.

The natural Black Elderberries used in Sambucol, from which the juice is taken directly, is cultivated and harvested in respect of GAP (Good Agricultural Practices), ensuring full process traceability. Importantly, the harvest season for Black Elderberry generally occurs from mid-August to mid-September. Over the year’s close collaboration and partnerships between the farms, scientists and manufacturers have been implemented to ensure the unique method of manufacturing the Black Elderberry juice is sustained. 

Harvest season for Sambucol Black Elderberries takes place in Austria and Hungry during August-September when berries are ripe and mature, sufficiently large and have changed to their distinct purplish-black colour. We use only the Haschberg variety of premium cultivar elderberries, handpicked from trees grown in dedicated orchards, devoted to Black

Elderberries. Haschberg Black Elderberries can have up to twice the anthocyanin content of wild elderberry, even when of the same genus (Sambucus Nigra L (Europa)).

Sambucol uses hundreds of tons of elderberries each year and is a trusted brand which qualifies under the strict European Fruit Juice Laws. Other manufacturers may use the same variety; however, it is the specific, proprietary production process that preserves the whole berry benefits that gives Sambucol it’s unique properties.

  • Our berries are handpicked once per year, milled and cold pressed by using state of the art technology.

  • Additional microfiltration ensures that the highest levels of phytonutrients are preserved and present in the juice.

  • The juice is stored in a completely aseptic system, solvent free, alcohol free.

When ready for manufacturing, each batch is carefully transported to our European production sites where Sambucol finished goods are produced under full GAP/GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) conditions.
